Earlier today Intel announced its successful Intel Developer Forum events would be ending this year with the existing 2017 event cancelled:
Intel has evolved its event portfolio and decided to retire the IDF program moving forward. Thank you for nearly 20 great years with the Intel Developer Forum! Intel has a number of resources available on intel.com, including a Resource and Design Center with documentation, software, and tools for designers, engineers, and developers. As always, our customers, partners, and developers should reach out to their Intel representative with questions.
Over the past few years, we at Events for Gamers have had the pleasure of attending these events. At these events you meet a lot of great people both in the hardware industry, but also in the game industry. We thought it was a fantastic mix, so will be sad to see it end.
For more about the IDF and why it was cancelled, Anandtech.com has details of their discussion with officials at Intel.
