The Oracle Retail Industry Forum attracts over 150 retailers each year. This unique executive-level event provides retailers with a forum to hear from top brands on how they are solving real-world challenges, interact with experts and thought leaders, and learn how Oracle is empowering modern retail leaders. Our 1.5-day forum is exclusively designed for our European community to share insights and successes. The programme is thoughtfully designed and delivered for retailers, by retailers and features adequate time for learning, networking & fun.
This year we are heading to Spain’s capital. Madrid is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the country, and it’s not hard to see why. Its historic buildings, monuments, cultural spaces, and extensive entertainment offer make Madrid an exceptional place. Home to the famous ‘Salamanca District’ it’s no wonder the influential British magazine “The Economist” named Madrid the second-best shopping capital in Europe!
Register now for the opportunity to meet with Oracle Retail experts and executives, and the broader retail community, clients, prospects and our partner network.
