Plug-In to Las Vegas

    COLLABORATE 14 - IOUG Forum Virtual Conference

    Can’t make it to COLLABORATE this year?  Need to still keep up with what’s going on and get access to user driven education?  Recognizing the need to provide quality group training at manageable costs, IOUG once again offers ‘Plug-in to Las Vegas,’ a virtual group training approach that offers your organization the right level of training at the right price depending on your organization’s business needs.

    For only $299, Virtual Conference attendees will be able to choose from two tracks on a session-by-session basis: Performance Tuning and Manageability.

    While it won’t replace an onsite experience, it does provide you access to many of the Oracle expert users, consultants and key engineers. You’ll participate by hearing the live presentation and getting an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers – as if you were in the room!


    What plugging in gets you

    How it works


    Plug- In to Vegas Schedule

    What plugging in gets you

    Group training* that gets your team unlimited seat access to Oracle education with no associated travel and lodging expenses

    • Virtual interaction with a wide-range of speakers and subject-matter experts
    • Selection from about 40 hours of live, quality streaming content (selected by popular choice) that run concurrently throughout the main event
    • Choice of two sessions for almost all session times from either Performance or Manageability
    • Archived, on demand access to video/audio proceedings post-event

     *While group set-up provides the highest return on investment, virtual access can also be set-up at the individual level.

    How it works

    • Register for your group seat license.
    • Once registered, you will receive a confirmation along with detailed instructions on virtual set-up.
    • Anytime before the event, you and/or your employee(s) selects their session curriculum from the virtual program.**
    • While you and/or your employee can access the virtual program individually, for highest return on investment, it is recommended that employers reserve a conference room or specific location prior to the event, allowing for multiple employee access.

      **Note: Sessions range from 30-minute and one-hour sessions.
