Windows Hardware Engineering Conference

Logo for the 2005 WinHEC

The Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) was an annual software and hardware developer-oriented trade show and business conference, held from 1992 to 2008, where Microsoft elaborated on its hardware plans for Microsoft Windows-compatible PCs. It commonly featured speeches from people such as Bill Gates, and generally had several sponsors including Intel, AMD, ATI and others.[1]

After 2008, WinHEC was replaced in Microsoft's schedule by the Professional Developers Conference, later merged into the Build conference.

On September 26, 2014, Microsoft announced that WinHEC will be returning in 2015 in the form of multiple conferences held through out the year.[2] The first conference is going to be held in Shenzhen, China on March 18 to 19. The WinHEC acronym has changed its meaning to the Windows Hardware Engineering Community.
