Oracle Partners at the Big Show

It Would Be a Small World Without Them
Oracle has more than 20,000 partners around the world, and Oracle OpenWorld is the one place customers can find hundreds of them in one location. This year we'll have more than 450 partners exhibiting in 300,000 square feet of space, turning the Exhibition Halls into a virtual learning emporium. Check out the exhibitor listing to see who's coming.
Each year attendees flock to the Moscone South and West Exhibition Halls to meet our partners and explore exhibits, technology innovations, games, product demos, and more. In fact, there's so much to do that attendees requested more time to do it. In response, we've dedicated session-free time in the schedule this year—and reduced the number of keynotes—to give you more time on the show floor.
As amazing as the Exhibition Halls are, keep in mind that our partners also play a huge role in the conference by sponsoring and delivering sessions. And you don't want to miss the keynotes of Mark Hurd, Chairman of the Board and CEO of HP and Paul S. Otellini, President and CEO of Intel Corporation. These industry luminaries from two of our most important strategic partners will be imparting important insights you won't be able to get from anyone else. HP is Oracle OpenWorld's 2008 Marquee Sponsor, and Intel is Oracle OpenWorld's 2008 Innovation Sponsor. You can find dates and times for all the speakers in the keynote schedule.
If you're a partner, we've got plenty of special activities and resources for you at Oracle OpenWorld too. Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum on Sunday, September 21 is designed entirely for Oracle partners and is a "can't miss." Be sure to read our partners only post for the lowdown on the Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum, the OPN Lounge, Titan Awards, and other exclusive offerings at the conference.
