Tips for Treasure Island

Oracle OpenWorld attendees, you've made it through three days of conference sessions, keynotes, labs, lunches, demos, meetings, and networking receptions. Now it's time to have a bit of fun. 

The long-awaited Oracle Appreciation Event is TONIGHT. With superstar-status performers, complimentary food and beverages, arcade games, amusement park rides, and remarkable views of San Francisco, it's pretty impossible to go wrong. 


That said, here are a few tips to ensure you'll have the best experience at tonight's bash:

  1. Wear your wristband. If you are registered for a full conference pass, then you will receive a wristband to attend the Appreciation Event. You must bring this with you or you will not be allowed on a shuttle bus or into the venue. You don't need your conference badge, but you do need your wristband. Should I say it again? Wear your wristband.
