BlackBerry is undergoing a major transition, and it is expected that certain things will get changed, moved, and even canceled. This has been the case with BlackBerry's next scheduled event, BlackBerry Jam Europe 2014, which has now been completely canceled. In an email sent to developers this afternoon, BlackBerry explain they "are taking some time to reevaluate [their] current events strategy," and have "determined that we will not proceed with BlackBerry Jam Europe in 2014."
While this is definitely disappointing news, BlackBerry does, however, promise to keep engaging with developers in more focused ways.
Thanks for your ongoing interest in our BlackBerry® Jam events. We’re writing today to let you know that we are taking some time to reevaluate our current events strategy and it has been determined that we will not proceed with BlackBerry Jam Europe in 2014. That said, we will continue to keep you updated as new events and BlackBerry activities become available.
BlackBerry events have always been purpose-driven, designed to help get your hands on new products, get familiar with our services, to learn about our future plans and roadmaps, and to demonstrate the powerful capabilities of BlackBerry platforms.
We will continue to engage with our developers in more focused ways, designed with a greater emphasis on the opportunities we have to talk to our developers about what matters most to you. We will keep you informed of future BlackBerry developer events.
The BlackBerry Jam Conference Team
The next big event in line should be BlackBerry Live 2014, but we've yet to receive any indication this event will take place either. No dates, or location have been announced, though to be fair, this doesn't generally happen until around December of the previous year.
