If last year was any indication, Google I/O 2013 will be a hotbed of announcements, product demos, parties, laughs and more than a bit of swag.

According to the newly-updated web page, Google will begin registration on March 13th at 7am PDT/10am EDT. The actual event will take place over three days, Wednesday May 15 to Friday May 17, and may coincide with the announcement of Motorola’s rumoured X-Phone.

If you’re interested in attending Google I/O 2013, make sure you have a reliable internet connection on March 13th, along with your rabbit’s foot, lucky pair of underwear, and anything else you typically use to sway the online ticketing gods.

Update: Google has updated its Google+ page detailing the pricing for I/O: “Registration will open on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 7:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and will remain open until tickets are sold out. Based on demand in previous years, we expect to sell out quickly. Just like last year, ticket prices will be USD $900 for general attendees and $300 for academic attendees, and you’ll need a Google+ account and a Google Wallet buyer account to register.”

    I would love to go to this but I’m just an average consumer. I’d kind of feel like a douche if I scored tickets over a developer who should actually probably be there.

    I wonder if they’ll show off the $2000 Chrome Pixel Pro. God I hope so!

      They are probably giving them away (if you live in the states of course).

      Google is very generous when it comes to people in the states… That or the CRTC doesn’t let them be generous to us Canadians.

    For this price we are getting a free nexus?

    Our Google, who art in Mountain View

    Holoed by thy domain

    They search engine come

    Thy will be done

    On Google earth as it is in Maps

    Give us this day our daily results

    And forgive us our spelling errors

    As we forgive those who Bing against us

    And lead us not into Apple

    But deliver us from Yahoo

    For thine is the Browser

    And the Android, and Chrome OS

    For ever and ever
