The event will be held in Japan this October.
Phil Spencer has stated that they will have something to say before the end of the year. This indicates that Microsoft may host a PlayStation Experience like event for its western audience.
@ScorpioP3 I want to visit some fans I haven’t visited before and we have some things to say before end of 2016 so we’ll find the times.

Big things to say? Well, could it be possible to see the new Project Scorpio by the end of the year? Microsoft is working on a 4K gaming console. Codename Project Scorpio, this machine can do 4K Native gaming. It is the first step toward a revolution in the console market.
Mid-cycle upgrades will change the face of console space.
Microsoft isn’t the only one changing its ways. Sony is working on a similar machined codenamed PlayStation 4 Neo. It is a more powerful variant of PlayStation 4 and offers 4K support with numerous other features.
Both machines are expected to release sometime next year. It looks like games will work like smartphones app in the future, optimized for different hardware specs at the same time.
