together 2021

29 & 30 November 2021 | The Oval, London

This November, join the UK Oracle community for two days jam-packed with content covering both Oracle Applications and Technology.

We know that two years on from our last physical event many of you are ready to get together and interact directly with industry experts, Oracle advocates and product managers. This is your opportunity to hear the latest updates from Oracle and learn tips & tricks from the community.

Why attend?

  • Develop best practice – save time and money by better understanding your product related challenges. Learn from Oracle experts in your field and gain access to world-leading content
  • Connect with Oracle users and partners – building knowledgeable, well-connected teams can add value to your organisation
  • Discover what the future holds – not only will you hear Oracle’s product management sharing their individual roadmaps for the future, but also you will receive expert, independent analysis about the significance of those announcements for today’s users

Remember, our conference is not a marketing event – it is a place where you can learn about Oracle’s future plans and how they will practically impact your business.
