The Job
In 2019 we had something to celebrate! This was the 10th Oracle Emerging Partner Community Forum; the Oracle EMEA event for current and new partners, that DDG has organized.
With participants coming from the whole of Europe and other regions, the goal each year is to find a suitable business location in central Europe. In 2019 the event took place in Mallorca. In previous years it was held in locations including Malta, Lisbon, Budapest, Mallorca and Split.
The event brief was to:
– Find a suitable business location in central Europe
– Find a suitable location for a social event and speaker dinner
– Organizing the welcome and goodbye drinks
– Provide high-quality catering, AV and facilities
– Plan the event from A-Z
– Ensure the smooth running of the event onsite

What we did
Located alongside the Mallorcan beach of Calviá, Melia Calvia Beach was the perfect venue to propose for 2019’s Forum.

On Monday, the conference started with the Community Day, where attendees choose between the technical best practice, business or Innovate with SaaS sessions. In the evening there was a lovely welcome drink on the terrace of the hotel with a beautiful view over the Mediterranean sea.

On Tuesday, the Keynote and General Sessions with live demos took place and at the end of the day the community awards were handed out. In the evening there were waiting busses in front of the hotel to take us to Finca Son Termes. There we were welcomed with a cocktails and finger food, followed by a walk-in dinner. A saxophonist played background music and later in the evening there was time to dance when the DJ arrived. For Whisky lovers there was a Whisky bar. We also arranged a photobooth to capture this sociable evening.

On Wednesday, the Breakout tracks deep dive with live demos took place, where attendees could attend one of the five tracks. In the evening, there was a boat trip on the Mediterranean Sea. During the boat tour the attendees enjoyed their drinks and soaked in the beautiful surroundings. We also organized a speaker dinner in Palma de Mallorca.

On Thursday and Friday the Hands-on training & coding & hackathon took place.
