LAS VEGAS — Oracle will be relocating its well-attended Oracle OpenWorld developer conference to Las Vegas in 2020, bringing thousands of attendees to the new CAESARS FORUM.
The annual event has been held in San Francisco since its launch in 1996 and has drawn around 60,000 attendees to Moscone Center.
Details of the move were not released, but CNBC reported that the San Francisco Travel Association had informed its members Dec. 9 that Oracle had made its decision based on attendee feedback; the price of hotels was apparently the tipping point for event organizers Oracle. The association would not confirm the report, citing confidentiality of room rates.
CAESARS FORUM, which is in the home stretch of construction and is scheduled to open in early 2020 and will reportedly be the new home of OpenWorld for up to three years. Oracle OpenWorld takes place in the fall.
