Come for the content—stay for the contacts.

September 30—October 4, 2012
Oracle PartnerNetwork Exchange @ OpenWorld premiers this year with a dedicated program of keynotes and sessions created to enhance the opportunities for partners to learn from and network with Oracle executives and experts. The new program also provides more informal opportunities than ever throughout the week to meet up with the people who are most important to your business: customers, prospects, and colleagues.

Oracle PartnerNetwork Exchange @ OpenWorld Highlights

Sunday, September 30

Global Partner Keynote: Start the week by gaining insight from senior executives into Oracle's partner vision, strategy, and resources—all designed to help build and strengthen market opportunities for partners.

Monday, October 1 – Thursday, October 4

PartnerNetwork Sessions: Oracle's top product and sales leaders will discuss Oracle's strategic direction in 25 targeted and in-depth sessions specific to partners. Many sessions will be focused by partner type: SI, ISV, and channel. Others will focus on one of the most critical partner success factors—business development.

Networking: The Oracle PartnerNetwork Lounge is the place where partners can meet formally or informally with colleagues, customers, prospects, and other industry professionals. Partners can visit the OPN Video Blogging room to record and share ideas; at the OPN Information Station, they will find consultants available to answer any questions that come up.
