Microsoft says this upcoming Consumer Electronics Show will be the last one where it delivers a keynote address and has a booth, reports Geekwire.

Each year, the company has a giant booth at the Last Vegas event in January and traditionally delivers a pre-show keynote speech. Bill Gates used to deliver the speeches, which Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer picked up in recent years.

In an announcement posted Wednesday morning, Microsoft said it will still send reps to the show to connect with others in the industry, “but we won’t have a keynote or booth after this year because our product news milestones generally don’t align with the show’s January timing.”
