OPN Central @ OpenWorld: What’s in it for you?

This year, Oracle invites you to discover the innovation and learning we’ve packed into Oracle OpenWorld. From technology sessions & labs hosted by industry experts and Oracle executives, to partner & exhibitor sessions, we’ve broken down barriers to get you to the source of information, faster. 

With that, we bring you OPN Central @ OpenWorld.

Conference Week Activities

Oracle OpenWorld takes place in San Francisco October 25 – 29. To show our commitment to our partners, Oracle has dedicated Sunday, October 25 to the Oracle PartnerNetwork community. On Sunday afternoon, partners can attend OPN General Sessions that will consist of three separate sessions catering specifically to SI, ISV, and VAR audiences. On Sunday evening, the famed OPN AfterDark Reception is back and open to all partners with a conference badge; no separate registration necessary.

The OPN Lounge will be open during conference week and home to the majority of OPN Central activities. Activities include OPN In Focus sessions – where partners can uncover the tools and resources needed to run a successful business. In addition, partners have a chance to delve into social media consultations at our Social Media Rally Station. This is an opportunity to discover your company’s “social clout” and determine ways to build a stronger online presence. Between your sessions and the conference hustle and bustle, relax in the OPN Lounge and network with members of the OPN Enablement team as well as your peers. 

Also located in the OPN Lounge is the brand new ISV Cloud BarAsk the Experts! Have all of your technical questions answers & your cloud strategy evaluated by our panel of experts throughout the conference week. In addition to the OPN Lounge, Experts will be in Moscone West, the Marriott Marquis and the OPN AfterDark Reception.

Test Fest @ OPN Central is also back for the fifth year in a row and takes place at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. Partners are encouraged to register for an opportunity to earn their Certified Specialist accreditation through one of ten session exams!

Top 5 Reasons to Buy a Discover Pass

"What's a Discover Pass, and why should I consider buying one for Oracle OpenWorld?" 

Presenting the Top 5 Reasons to Experience Oracle OpenWorld with a Discover Pass:

5. Visit the Exhibition Halls, Showcases, and Oracle DEMOgrounds: A Discover Pass grants you access to the Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne exhibition halls. What's that mean, exactly? You'll be able to visit more than 400 exhibition booths from a wide variety of exhibitors. (See who's exhibiting here.) You'll also get to check out the Exhibition Hall theater presentations, which are always entertaining.

This year we are expanding the Showcases at Oracle OpenWorld. Showcases are built to help you discover the latest innovations for hot topics like big data, ERP, mobile, and cloud. This is your chance to hear from the experts, network with peers, and learn about the latest technologies in your areas of interest. Take a look at the Showcase Listings. In addition to visiting with Oracle partners, we provide you with the opportunity to test drive Oracle products at Oracle DEMOgrounds. This is a great way to learn about new Oracle products and to meet Oracle product experts in person.

Exhibition Halls provide more than just free pens--you'll get to discover some of the newest tech on the market from both established solution providers and up-and-coming companies. Plus, there's always exciting action on the expo floor. From surprise celebrity appearances, to intense ping pong matches, we can guarantee you will not be bored!

4. Networking Opportunities: It almost goes without saying that the best networking takes place in person. We would venture to say that the very best networking occurs at Oracle OpenWorld. The event is designed with networking in mind. From the expansive seating on Oracle Plaza, to dedicated networking areas like the OTN Lounge, we want you to be able to sneak away from the hustle and bustle of the expo halls to have meaningful conversations that could impact your business.
