When is the Microsoft October 2019 event?

The Microsoft October 2019 event is set to start on Wednesday October 2 at 10AM EDT /  7AM PDT / 3PM BST or 12AM AEST Thursday October 3.

How long will the event last? That varies from year-to-year, but we're expecting it to be around an hour and a half.

The Microsoft October 2019 event is happening on October 2 in New York, and a recent spate of rumors suggest that Microsoft will be launching a load of new Surface devices, including the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3.

We'll be there at the launch, but if you want to watch along live, then this guide to how to watch the Microsoft October 2019 event will give you all the information you need.

Microsoft will be broadcasting a live stream of the October 2019 event, and we'll be running a live blog as well, so even if you can't watch the video live, you can keep up to date with all the latest breaking news from the Microsoft October 2019 Surface event.

As we'll be at the event in New York, we should  be getting some time with the new hardware after they have been announced, so keep an eye on the TechRadar homepage for our hands-on impressions.

How to keep up with the Microsoft October 2019 event on Twitter
