Jane Wells updated the WordCamp NYC blog to officially announce the dates for the 2010 event today. WordCamp NYC will be held October 16-17 at Bratuch College, in New York City.
There are two other conferences happening the same weekend: BlogWorldExpo in Las Vegas and an open source conference in Pennsylvania. Wells explains this as a positive:
We see this as a positive, because it forces us to look more closely at local WordPress practitioners who have something to share, rather than automatically defaulting to the names that pop up on the WordCamp circuit all the time.
