As we see in the image above, the dates of the three remaining events this year have been filtered out:
Microsoft Build: May 25-27. Ready for Microsoft: July 21-22. Microsoft Ignite: October 13-14.
It is a very special year for several reasons. The first and most obvious is the COVID-19 pandemic that is hitting the world. The way we interact has changed, and companies the size of Microsoft are no strangers to it. Therefore, construction 2021 and the rest of the events planned for this year will be held at bay, unless the situation improves significantly in the coming months.
The second reason that makes 2021 so special for Microsoft is actually two reasons: Windows 10X and Sun Valley. These two proper names shine in their own light in the near future of the company and are the big bets for Panos Panay for his tenure as head of the Windows division.

There is no guarantee of any kind that Microsoft will refer to either of these two products during Microsoft Build 2021.

Will this be the year Microsoft returns to this custom?
