MIDDLEBORO, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Champion Exposition Services (“Champion”), a leading provider of comprehensive event solutions and exposition services, today announced that the company will serve as the official general service contractor for Oracle OpenWorld 2008.

I wanted to find out more about how Champion Exposition Services is using the Oracle technology platform, but I wasn't able to find any information about that. Presumably this is on Justin Kestelyn's to-do list - it makes a good story when your suppliers are using your products.
