US based technology major Google has revealed the dates of the I/O 2016 Developers Conclave event.

The company CEO Sundar Pichai on his Google+ account revealed that the event will kick off on 18 May and conclude on 20 May.

"We'll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can't make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details, said Pichai.

To those unaware, this is Google's 10th developer conclave event. So to mark the anniversary, search engine giant has decided to host this I/O 2016 event at the company's Mountain View headquarters' backyard, Shoreline Amphitheatre, California. This event can only be attended by software programmers and select individuals with valid invites. If history is any indication, Google is expected to roll-out I/O invitations in March.
