COLLABORATE 20 Presenters

The COLLABORATE 20 event previously scheduled for April 19-23 has been canceled. Instead, the Quest Forum at COLLABORATE programming will shift to a full virtual conference format. The efforts that the Quest team has put into the development of its online digital event capabilities over the last two years are now paying off as we quickly shift gears to offer participants a robust conference experience within a digital format.

More information will soon be available, but the digital event will kick off April 20-23 with a series of live Keynote and Oracle Roadmap sessions. This will be followed by dedicated digital community events for our JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Oracle Cloud apps and Database & Technology users that offer a full roster of education programs, including:

  • Product-centric education tracks and sessions
  • Oracle Hands-On Labs & Quest workshops
  • Demonstrations and Tips & Tricks sessions
  • Meet the Experts events and other panel sessions
  • Special Interest Group (SIG) roundtables

We’re excited at the opportunity to take the Quest Forum programming online, and look forward to working with our speakers on the new event. Existing COLLABORATE speakers will be contacted by the Quest Customer Learning team regarding next steps.

We look forward to joining you online later this spring!
