Oracle OpenWorld — Today, Oracle welcomes more than 60,000 customers and partners from 175 countries and 19 million virtual attendees to Oracle OpenWorld 2018, the world's most innovative cloud technology conference.

At the annual event, Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison will talk about the latest-and-greatest technologies being incorporated into Oracle's next-generation cloud that will make data an even more valuable asset across industries. Throughout the week, he and Oracle CEO Mark Hurd will take the stage alongside some of the biggest brands in business, including AT&T Business, Cisco, and Cummins.

A powerful group of high-profile thought leaders and futurists – spanning business, technology, politics, science, sports and media – will headline Oracle OpenWorld 2018. Featured speakers include Brian Greene, physicist and co-founder of the World Science Festival; futurist Sophie Hackford, CEO of 1715 Labs; Nely Galán, Producer and former President of Entertainment for Telemundo; and Dr. Rand Hindi, CEO of Snips.

Senator Barbara Boxer and former Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner, among other politicians and business influencers, will share their perspectives at Oracle Leaders Circle, an exclusive event at Oracle OpenWorld for top executives.

"Oracle OpenWorld 2018 delivers a world-class conference experience that immerses attendees in the future of cloud, artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies," said Tania Weidick, Oracle Vice President of Event Marketing. "Everything about the event – from creative programming to luminary speakers – is designed to promote new ideas and collaboration, as well as best position our customers and partners for success. This year's event will continue our 20-plus year legacy in San Francisco, contributing $195 million in positive economic impact to the city."
