Partners Come First at OPN Central @ OpenWorld 17
Calling all innovators, entrepreneurs and disruptors: In one week, we invite you to uncover the innovation, learning and networking Oracle has packed into Oracle OpenWorld. Experience our redesigned exhibit hall–The EXchange–and see for yourself why this year’s sessions are truly not to be missed.
OPN Central @ OpenWorld
Oracle OpenWorld takes place in San Francisco October 1-5. To show our commitment to partners, Oracle has dedicated Sunday, Oct. 1, to the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) community. On Sunday afternoon, you’re invited to attend the OPN Keynote and OPN General Sessions kicking off at 1 p.m. PT. During the keynote, you’ll hear discussions on the key role partners play in the shifting industry ecosystem, customer cloud journeys, and the expanded resources and growth opportunities available in the Oracle channel. During the General Sessions, you will hear conversations about implementation success, application development and selling with Oracle.
The OPN Lounge is back at a NEW LOCATION: Come find us in the Marriott Marquis on the Atrium level. The Lounge will be open during conference week and home to many OPN Central activities. Activities include OPN InFocus Sessions, where partners will learn more about OPN’s enablement roadmap, cloud certifications and specializations, marketing resources and more. We’ll have more sessions and more space than ever before!
Partners are invited to hold customer meetings at the Connection Tables in the OPN Lounge. No pre-reservation required, you can reserve your spot at the OPN Lounge’s Welcome Desk once you’re onsite!
OPN Test Fest is also back for the seventh year in a row and takes place at the Courtyard San Francisco Downtown Hotel (Marriott). Partners are encouraged to register for an opportunity to earn their Certified Specialist accreditation at no cost. There are more than 70 exams and 10 testing sessions to choose from.
There’s a lot to do—we know. So make sure that between the sessions, breakouts, receptions and overall conference hustle and bustle, you relax and recharge with the Oracle PartnerNetwork team and your peers in the OPN Lounge.
