Oracle and Netsuite have just announced a 16-city tour dubbed the “Next Ready” Business Tour.

Each stop on the 16-city tour is more of a cocktail hour which starts around 5 pm. Revenue Recognition and Understanding the Transition to ASC 606 is on most agendas though some of the stops appear to have more of a customer panel and Q&A format (review the list of scheduled events on Netsuite’s site  – Oracle Netsuite – Next Ready Business Tour)

Beginning this month and criss crossing the country at select cities, the tour will feature industry thought leaders, customers, partners, NetSuite executives and sports legends from the NBA, NFL and MLB at multiple one-day events. The event series are designed to prepare businesses for whatever comes next, whether it’s a new business model, a new market, new technology or new regulation with NetSuite’s decades of experience across a wide range of industries, real-world examples of businesses thriving amidst change and some of the leading analysts and consultants in their field.

Celebrities scheduled to appear at various stops on the tour (not every stop has a celebrity and those listed below appear only at a single event):

  • Bill Walton, NBA Hall of Famer
  • Julius Erving, NBA Hall of Famer
  • Chris Paul, NBA Houston Rockets
  • Dominique Wilkins, NBA Hall of Famer
  • Constantino “Tino” Martinez, 4x World Series, 2x All Star Baseball Player
  • Jason Taylor, Pro Football Hall of Famer

The 16 North American city tour will provide businesses an opportunity to learn about:

  • Scaling Your Business, enabling growth and innovation amidst an environment of constant change.
  • Preparing for ASC 606, adjusting to the biggest accounting change in over a decade that is bringing changes to how companies sell, manage and account for revenue.
