Panos Panay, the man in charge with the Surface division at Microsoft, has just confirmed in a short tweet that Microsoft would host a Surface Pro launch party in Las Vegas tomorrow.

“Jon M. Chu and I are going to hang out at Fashion Square Mall Vegas tomorrow, at Microsoft Store,” Panos Panay said.

In addition, Jon Chu, the director behind the Surface RT ads and the creator of the first Surface Pro commercial, also confirmed the event, suggesting that Microsoft may actually air the Pro advertising clip during the event.

“See you there at the Fashion Mall in Las Vegas for the release of the Pro! And maybe I’ll bring some Surface dancers,” Chu said.

Microsoft initially wanted to roll out the Surface Pro in NYC on February 8, but the company canceled the event due to heavy snow. The device will still go on sale in both the US and Canada in just a few hours.
