And then on Monday through Thursday there are PartnerExchange session tracks at the Marriott Marquis.

    Monday Look Forward to Your Visit - Oracle PartnerNetwork Lounge

    I remember when I was a Partner, Sunday at Oracle OpenWorld was primarily a time to finish off your booth and start-I mean polish your session and booth presentations. Those days are certainly gone after what so I saw so many Partners experiencing first hand on OpenWorld Sunday.


    With a record signup, the OPN PartnerNetwork Forum filled the entire day with content, breakouts, technology overviews, Partners and opportunity.

    Thank you again to the Partners I had the opportunity to meet throughout Sunday and especially for you that wanted to keep sharing late into the evening after the Sunday opening keynote.

    It hours away to when the OPN Lounge will officially open and I will report there where I will have the opportunity to meet with even more of you. As I mentioned in my earlier blog, with the OPN Lounge such a great resource for Partners, try and make it a top priority in your schedule to get by and check it out Monday so you can leverage it the rest of the week.

    I’ve heard that towards the end of the day Monday, you may wish to additionally drop by for a sponsored happy hour mixer in the OPN Partner Lounge. The benefits just keep getting better each year...

    Getting to Know You - OPN Lounge at Oracle OpenWorld 2011

When you in the exhibition hall, just look up and you will see this large banner identifying the entrance in Moscone South room 100.

    Here you can see one of the reception desks to check in


    Here is my coworker Liviu pointing out one of the private meeting rooms I mentioned in my early blog posting

    And last but certainly not least is one of the places I will be meeting a number of Partners this week and learning more about your successes. I plan to blog more on those Partner interactions and experiences throughout the week.

    #3 Tip for Oracle Partners - OPN Lounge at Oracle OpenWorld

    If you’re a Partner and attending Oracle OpenWorld 2011, after attending the Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum on Sunday, then Monday the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Lounge is your next stop, hub, and connection point for the rest of the week. It’s more than a place to visit with someone from Oracle, so be sure and take full advantage of it while you’re at OpenWorld. Also a thank you to our lounge sponsor Tech Data Corporation.

    Open Monday through Wednesday in the Moscone South hall room 100,

    the OPN Lounge is an oasis from exhibition hall activity and offers a number of resources just for partners. During regular business come to the OPN Lounge:

    • To take advantage of semiprivate meeting rooms for the exclusive use of OPN partners. Hold meetings, meet with peers, and engage in relevant conversations with the Oracle Alliances & Channels team, other partners, customers and other industry professionals.

    • To get questions answered at the information stations, staffed by Partner Business Center consultants

    • Report for your prearranged appointment or sign up for the OPN Video Blogging room to share some of your Specialization accomplishments or ideas.

    #2 Tip for Oracle Partners - Oracle OpenWorld

    If you’re a Partner and have never attended an OpenWorld, put in for it now so you can be considered and plan for it next year. If you have already planned to be at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 Welcome! from an a 12+ year Partner OOW alumni.

    Whether you are attending sessions, presenting, exhibiting or doing all three as I once did, the week is what you make of it and I hope you came with some extra “no doze” as you don’t want to miss anything. With too many great things for me to cover in my Blog, I’ll provide you some of my favorite highlights:

    • Arrive on Friday or Saturday and get all your preparations and planning accomplished. That includes getting acquainted with the city, event locations, as well as where you plan to dine. Get your PC connected to the conference network, social media and download the conference mobile app as well. Being able to connect to OPN and other sources of information on my iPhone is so much better than the heavy conference proceedings I remember hauling around in my backpack all week. One year I broke my foot just before the event and was unsure how I was going to get around on crutches. Luckily for me someone told me about folks who you can rent a scooter for the week and they even deliver it to your hotel.

    • Sunday is the OPN Partner Forum. Start the week off hearing about the latest and greatest in offerings and opportunities for Partners, hear real success stories and experience the recognition and reward the Oracle Partner program provides. As the day winds down, the evening kicks in with the first keynote and a Partner reception that is an excellent networking opportunity to start off your week.
    • Monday – grab a big breakfast, attend the keynote and make it to Moscone south and acquaint yourself on the location of the Oracle Partner Network Lounge even if you don’t have time to stop in yet. While on the exhibit hall floor, you can use the opportunity to meet and see what other Partners are doing. I’m always amazed at the booth themes and promotions folks come up with. Sit in on some sessions and announcements and don’t miss fueling back up at lunch as there are so many activities in the evening you don’t want to miss as well.

    I’ll stop here for now and provide you some additional insights over the week. I also want to meet as many of you Partners interested in Specialization and Oracle’s technology and solutions for manageability. If that interests you, I’ll be around the OPN Lounge a majority of the week, so just ask for me. If I happen to be away when you drop by, please leave a business card to my attention with your mobile phone and email and we can set a time to meet back there.
