Don't look now, but the Microsoft BUILD conference is back.

Steven Guggenheimer, corporate vice president and chief evangelist of Developer and Platform Evangelism, announced today that the next BUILD Conference will be held June 26-28, 2013, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Guggenheimer revealed Microsoft's BUILD conference schedule at the Visual Studio Live! conference in Las Vegas this morning. During his afternoon keynote address, Guggenheimer told attendees that the Moscone Center will provide a lot more room than last year's event, which was held on Microsoft's Redmond campus. Registrations for BUILD 2012 sold out in less than one hour.

BUILD is Microsoft's flagship developer conference. The June event will be the third BUILD conference, following events held in the fall of 2011 and 2012. The conference in the past has served as the platform for launching developer previews of key Microsoft developer products, including Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012.

In a blog post, Guggenheimer wrote that the conference will provide updates "about what's next for Windows, Windows Server, Windows Azure, Visual Studio and more." Developers can also visit the official BUILD Web site for information about the event.

BUILD 2013 conference Registration opens April 2nd at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. Registration costs $2,095, with an early bird rate of $1,595 for the first 500 registrations.
