What's Up for "We're Almost There" Wednesday

 By Karen Shamban

Wow - can't believe we're looking at Wednesday already!  Still so much to do, places to go, people to talk with. The last day for the Exhibition Halls is Wednesday, so be sure to spend time there if you haven't done so already. And don't forget (as if you would) that the famed Oracle Appreciation Event is Wednesday night on Treasure Island. 

Here are just some of the big things happening Wednesday, October 3:

  • Registration
    • Moscone West, Moscone South, Hilton San Francisco, Westin St. Francis, Hotel Nikko, 7:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
  • Oracle OpenWorld Keynote featuring Oracle executives John Fowler, Edward Screven, and Juan Loiaza
    • Moscone North Hall D, 8:00 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
  • Oracle Appreciation Event, featuring Pearl Jam, with Kings of Leon and X
    • Treasure Island, 7:30 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. (note: must have approved wristband to attend)

After what is sure to be a late night, it's good to know that the Thursday keynotes don't start until 9:00 a.m. They're going to be really great, so you won't want to miss them!


What are the different shuttle drop off locations after the concert? Last year the shuttles dropped outside of SF hotels, such as Millbrae, etc.

Hi Kevin - see the details in the Shuttle Schedule at http://www.oracle.com/openworld/travel/transportationguide-2012-1853133.pdf. If that doesn't answer your questions, check at one of the Information Desks, or at one of the shuttle stops - they should have the answers.

How do we get the approved wristband to attend the Appreciation Event?

Posted by Paul on October 02, 2012 at 06:50 PM PDT #

Hi Paul - certain registration types for the Oracle conferences come with wristbands for the Appreciation Event. For example, an Oracle OpenWorld full conference registration does, but not a Discover pass. You can see which types of registration come with the pass at:


Also check the add-on packages that are available for certain registration types.

I understand you must always have your badge to gain admittance to the concert. is this true?

Posted by guest on October 03, 2012 at 03:45 PM PDT #

Bring your badge and your wristband. I'm not sure if you need your badge, but you must have the wristband. Better to be safe than sorry ...
