Oracle Cerner moves annual conference from Kansas City to Las Vegas

Oracle Cerner plans to move its annual conference to Las Vegas from its longtime home in Kansas City, Mo., The Kansas City Star reported Dec. 15.

The former Cerner Health Conference will be integrated into Oracle's annual event starting in 2023, according to the report. The gathering brought about $18 million and 14,000 people to Kansas City each year since 2007.

"While we are disappointed in this decision, we understand the economics of scaling the event within the existing framework of the Oracle World Cloud Conference footprint in Las Vegas," Nathan Hermiston, senior vice president of convention sales and services with Visit KC, told the newspaper.

Software giant Oracle bought the Kansas City-based EHR vendor in June for $28.4 billion. Since that time, the company closed two Kansas City area Cerner campuses.
