Although conferences focus on attending sessions and meeting vendors, they’re also all about networking with peers, enjoying the entertainment and taking in the native vibe. Here are a few things you can do – both fun and work-related:

  • San Francisco Giants vs. Miami Marlins – If you’re arriving early on Sunday, the first 200 full-conference registrants to check in and collect their Oracle OpenWorld 2019 badge between 10:30 am–12:00 pm receive two free Club Level tickets and credit to use toward food and beverage. Or, you could still check out the game, starting at 1:05 pm at Oracle Park.
  • Chinatown – No trip to San Francisco is complete without a visit to Chinatown for the food, the shops, the culture – and did we mention the food? The Dragon’s Gate entrance at Bush Street and Grant Avenue is about a 15 minute walk from the Moscone Center.
