If You’re Going to San Francisco…

San Francisco is my favorite city in the world... And, as a musician and music lover, I get goose bumps every time I play this song on YouTube. Scott McKenzie recorded and released it in 1967 to promote the legendary Monterey Pop Festival. His soulful performance spurred a mass migration to The Bay Area of Hippies seeking enlightenment.

Next week, at Oracle OpenWorld, all those Hippies will have to scoot over and make room for thousands of inquisitive professionals descending upon The City by the Bay. They seek not musical or spiritual enlightenment but, rather, more knowledge about Oracle’s solutions. About two thirds of those seekers will be part of Oracle’s Midsize community.

We’ve dialed in the agenda for Oracle’s Midsize customers, prospects, and partners…

Over the years we’ve learned what Oracle’s Midsize community wants to see and hear at Oracle OpenWorld. Here are our three top recommendations:

#1Best Session For EVERYONE: Grow With Oracle: Strategies From Oracle Customers Using IT To Support Growth”

And, visit our Oracle OpenWorld 2013 - Oracle Midsize Programs website for more details on sessions and events of interest to everyone in the Oracle Midsize community.

Don’t forget about... the Customer Appreciation Night on Wednesday. Don’t expect to hear much Hippie music but this year’s headlinersMaroon 5 and The Black Keys—have won a combined nine Grammy awards.

And if you’re feeling nostalgic, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
