No MS TechEd next year anymore?

Last year Microsoft cancelled MMS (Microsoft Management Summit) with the words: We are excited to announce that in 2014, we are bringing together the best of TechEd and MMS at TechEd North America in Houston. Beside of MMS the future of MS TechEd seems to be uncertain also. This because there's a date for TechEd North America already, but still not for Europe. Because it's 2014 already, it's kinda late to announce a date? Maybe it will be an October/November event; but likely it's not happening..

Looking for more information the following is found:
TechEd North America 2014, May 12-15
If the rumors are right, this year's TechEd may be the last. The content at TechEd North America this year also is expected to include some management-specific tracks, as the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) is now being folded into this show.
TechEd Europe 2014, October (dates and location not yet public)
There had been some speculation Microsoft might drop TechEd Europe this year. But thanks to info unearthed by one of my contacts, it sounds like the show will go on (at least this year).

  1. TechEd Europe have been cancelled before, nothing new in that.

    1. That's right, but this time the future of TechEd (both NA and Europe) seems to be unsure.
