This is a technical event covering selected OpenText products that are developed in Bangalore. Click HERE for the list of topics to be covered. Note that this list will be expanded as the agenda for the week comes together.
Week-end sessions will be in the form of hands-on workshops. During the week sessions will range from deep-dive technical sessions to discussion sessions and Focus Groups. There will be ample time to discuss technical issues with OpenText staff and other delegates in attendance. We will also offer the opportunity of one-to-one discussions where topics are specific to your use case.
There is no charge for attending the event but book early as the special rate we have negotiated with the hotel will expire. We will arrange for you to be met at the airport in Bangalore on your arrival and to be driven to the hotel. We will arrange transport to and from the offices during the week and back to the airport on your departure. We will be in touch to discuss all of this after you have registered. Lunch and dinner will be provided each day along with group dinners during the week. You are welcome to bring your partner and as usual we have a social program planned for them during the week - see the separate booking form below. Remember that most people will require a visa for India so research this early as as these can take some time to process.
We will be using the 5* Conrad Hilton as the conference hotel in Bangalore. Transport to and from the OpenText offices will only be provided from this hotel. You are welcome to stay in other hotels but you will be responsible for any transport to and from that hotel and the office.
We have negotiated a rather special rate at this hotel of 12,000 INR per night (approx 130 Euros) (plus Taxes) for a Deluxe Room, which includes Breakfast, WiFi and a Dinner Buffet each day of your stay and up to two days before and two days after the conference period. Double rooms cost and extra 1000 INR per night. Higher room categories are available for an additional 2000 INR per night.
In order to book your hotel room follow this link: HOTEL BOOKING LINK
Don't be confused when you see the Hilton booking page refer to Micro Focus Software India Private Limited - this is the old corporate entity linked to the Indian Development Centre which has not been migrated to OpenText as yet.
(1) The Special Rate for the Conrad is only available until the 17th January. After that date rooms will be subject to availability and are currently listed at 21,000 INR per night. So - book early!
(2) Check in time at the hotel is 3pm so if you arrive at say 3am on the 2nd February you are advised to book the hotel for the previous night so that you do not have a very long wait for your room.
(3) The Conference Welcome Reception will be held at this hotel on the night of the 4th February and the Gala Dinner on the night of the 8th February.
Airport pick-up and drop-off
We have arranged with a local travel company for delegates of our event to be met at the airport and taken to the Conference Hotel and then returned to the airport on their departure. To use this service please complete the form via the link below. Please note this is much cheaper than arranging the transport via the hotel.
On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th February we will run several free of charge hands-on workshops in the Development Center. Details of these workshops can be found by following the link below. It is important that you register for these workshops if you plan to attend so that we can choose room sizes based on the numbers interested and arrange for your transport to and from the offices at the weekend. Please do not register for the workshops before you register for the main conference.
Workshop Registration will close on the 24th January 2024.
