WWDC 2012 Already Scheduled for June 10th-15th?

The 2011 edition of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) just wrapped up a few days ago, but some attendees may already be looking forward to next year in hopes of penciling in dates so that they are ready to go when tickets go on sale and potentially sell out within hours. So those planning on attending WWDC 2012 may want to take renewed note of a multi-year calendar from the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau that was discovered last year, a document that listed June 10th through 15th as the tentative dates for WWDC 2012, with the actual conference presumably kicking off with a keynote on Monday, June 11th.

Tentative WWDC Dates:
2012: June 10th - June 15th
2013: June 9th - June 14th
2014: June 1st - June 6th
2015: June 7th - June 12th

That document did accurately reflect the 2011 conference dates, but was not correct about the 2010 dates, emphasizing the tentative nature of the information. But adding some fuel to the speculation is the Moscone Center's event calendar, which currently shows a generic "Corporate Meeting" listed running from Sunday, June 10th through Friday, June 15th next year.

moscone jun12 calendar
Such generic listings "Corporate Event" and "Corporate Meeting" frequently appear as placeholders for WWDC well ahead of time, although they are of course not exclusive to Apple and are used whenever booking entities do not wish to publicly disclose their identities.

Even if the "Corporate Meeting" listing does refer to WWDC, Apple is certainly capable of adjusting its schedule, although busy conference schedules can make it difficult to do so as things begin to book up. Consequently, it seems reasonable to speculate that Apple and the Moscone Center have at least penciled in the June 11th-15th dates for next year's WWDC, but we'll certainly be keeping our eyes on the schedules to see if anything changes, as they have on occasion in the past.

Why don't they hold this thing in a larger center? Microsoft had over 10,000 people at Tech-Ed this year.

Wrong about 2015

In the year two thousand fifteen, the Apple World Wide Developer Conference will take place in a halo-shaped spacecraft hovering over Cupertino, California.

Crazy...

Only Apple wouldn't advertise the dates of it's next year conference at the end of its current one.

Must be nice to be in a situation you know attendees will come no matter what. Most other conferences start advertising the following year dates and location during the current one! :)

There isn't a page 2 now.

Page 2 was replaced by the Mac Blog. There’s still a place for minor stories other than the front page.
