ACC Liverpool has won its bid to host the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG), the largest Oracle conference in the UK, for the first time.
The venue, home to BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, is set to welcome 1,000 delegates each to Tech14 and Apps14 from 8-10 December this year. Both events will run over three days and will see BT Convention Centre divided into two to create two separate events.
Around 400 internationally renowned speakers are expected overall along with 60 exhibitors providing advice and information about technological solutions and products.
“Both our conferences have the same objective of sharing knowledge and providing networking opportunities among the Oracle community,” said UKOUG Chief Executive, James Haslam. “We are pleased to be coming to Liverpool for the first time and were attracted by the venue’s flexibility. An enticing social programme is a major part of both our conferences and Liverpool ticked every box for attracts, restaurants and cultural offers, all of which we hope our delegates will take advantage of.”
Kerrin MacPhie, Director of Sales at ACC Liverpool, said: “This is unusual for us to have two conferences co-located. As both will attract different audiences, we are splitting the convention centre down the middle including the galleria and hall two, creating two venues within a venue.”
