What You Missed At Oracle OpenWorld 2012


Oracle OpenWorld, The 2012 Edition

Once again, San Francisco braced itself for Oracle OpenWorld and its 50,000 attendees. This year, the humongous show occupied not only the Moscone Conference Center, nearby Howard Street (seen here being transformed for the event) and the Yerba Buena Gardens as in the past, but a dozen other parts of the city such as Minna Alley and Union Square -- renamed "Oracle Square" for the week.

Attendees booked nearly 98,000 hotel room nights for the show and dropped an estimated $120 million in San Francisco during their stay.
