Oracle has a customer base of roughly 390,000 with 15.1 million developers scattered worldwide. Suffice to say, it's going to be a big event.
Here's a snapshot of what this year's OpenWorld is going to look like:
50,000 attendees from 123 countries
1,000,000 expected online attendees
2,523 sessions scattered across 14 venues in downtown SF
Only 40,942 seats for sessions, which accounts for 81 percent of attendees
3,750 total speakers
457 partner and customer exhibitors
406 Oracle demos going on
300,000,000 social interactions expected across 126 Oracle social properties
Expected impact to SF Bay Area: $120 million
Number of cups of coffee served: 142,000
Certainly to get through all of those sessions and demos, those cups of coffee are going to be necessary.
In the meantime, be on the look out for one of those San Francisco taxis with Rimini Street signage on top. While the advertising scheme is a bit tongue-in-cheek, you could win a few prizes just with a tweet.
