Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Networking Opportunity Events #OOW14 I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many people are misled to believe) at OOW.  To attend one of these events:

  1. You’re registered as an OpenWorld Attendee.
  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host. That means you actually contact the host and ask to attend before OOW.
  3. You visit the host’s booth at OpenWorld in order to pick up whatever is required for entry and get to know what the host actually does.
  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – just spend your time at a regular OOW reception the same evening and you’ll still get plenty of party time.

Visit all those vendors and make them feel welcomed this year!
