Microsoft today sent out media invitations for an event at 11 a.m. Eastern on November 2 in New York where chief executive Satya Nadella and Office corporate vice president Kirk Koenigsbauer will speak. The executives will “discuss the changing nature of collaboration and how we can empower every team to achieve more,” according to an email from a company spokesperson.

Microsoft also sent media invitations for a watch party in San Francisco.

This event will happen just one week after Microsoft holds a Windows 10 event in New York where hardware is expected to be introduced.

Alongside Windows, Office is, of course, still a major product line for Microsoft. The company held a major Office press event in San Francisco in 2014 to announce the launch of Office for iPad. Something just as significant could be on the way.

Update on October 20: Today in his prepared remarks on the company’s quarterly earnings call, Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella said that he was looking forward to announcing news about Windows and Office 365. This suggests that the November 2 event will at least cover Office 365.
