WinHEC - formerly Windows Hardware Engineering Conference 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.

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.[1] The first conference is going to be held in Shenzhen, China on March 18 to 19. The industry has changed quite a bit since Microsoft last held WinHEC event, with innovation happening at a much quicker pace and across more geographically diverse locations. Because of that, Microsoft is evolving WinHEC to be more than a single annual conference. Looking ahead, WinHEC will consist of technical conferences and smaller, more frequent, topic focused workshops that are local to the hardware ecosystem hubs. The WinHEC acronym has changed its meaning to the Windows Hardware Engineering Community.

On December 17, 2014, Microsoft announced that registration is open for the first of its re-launched Windows Hardware Ecosystem Community (WinHEC) summit, taking place March 18–19, 2015 in Shenzhen, China. The company also announced that Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Operating Systems Group will keynote the event. They will discuss advancements in the Windows platform that make it easier for companies to build devices powered by Windows as well as Microsoft’s growing investments in the Shenzhen and China ecosystem.

Audience[edit]

WinHEC will stay true to its strong technical roots. The agenda will be packed with executive keynotes, deep technical training sessions, hands-on labs, and opportunities for Q&A on topics across the spectrum of Windows-based hardware. For executives, engineering managers, engineers and technical product managers at OEMs, ODMs, IHVs, and IDHs who are working with or want to work with Windows technologies
