LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - It appears that the Oracle OpenWorld trade show is moving to Las Vegas.  

A spokesperson from Oracle confirmed the news on Tuesday as the company will move its business and tech conference from San Francisco to Vegas in 2020.

 

The trade show draws in nearly sixty-thousand people from over one-hundred-and-forty companies according to the Oracle website.  

Officials cited San Francisco's cost and Vegas' more affordable hotel rooms, airport and street conditions as factors in the decision.

Which convention facility would be utilized hasn't officially been said, but CNBC says the show will move to Caesars Forum, with that new facility set to open next March.
