Dreamforce is an annual Salesforce event that brings together community of trailblazers to celebrate success, learn more about the platform and the ecosystem and provides the opportunity for others to give back.
As one of the biggest tech conferences in the world – with over 100,000 attendees – you may be wondering; what’s in it for you? Why should you attend?
Here are 5 reasons (listed in no particular order) that answer just that. If we’ve missed a reason, let us know in the comments below!
Chance to Network
Where else can you go and be around 120,000 people from over 65 countries that you can network with? Building your network of Salesforce resources is vital to your success.
Whether it’s chatting between meals, waiting for a session to start, or on the shuttle bus to the Moscone Center, the endless networking opportunities are always one of the top take-aways from Dreamforce each year.
Friendships are forged and connections are made (your social accounts will really blow up during this time).
Knowledge is King
The only problem with Dreamforce is that it isn’t longer. With tons of sessions to choose from across every role imaginable, your biggest challenge is going to be finding enough time each day and enough room in your brain to take it all in. You will learn countless ways to transform your business by learning first hand, face-to-face from some of the best and brightest in the industry.
It’s All About Giving Back
We all know that Marc Benioff and Salesforce.com prioritize philanthropy and giving back. Did you know that at Dreamforce 2013, they held a benefit concert that raised more than $6 million and all the proceeds went to support the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital? Dreamforce is one of the largest opportunities for companies and individuals to give back to the community – and learn how to deploy the 1:1:1 model of philanthropy at your company to support your local communities and favorite charities.
You can expect to be invited to some world class social gatherings. Oh yeah, and not to mention that each and every year, Salesforce hosts an AMAZING private rock concert for attendees, which over the years has featured bands like Train, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Black Crowes, INXS, Green Day and more.
World Class Speakers
President Bill Clinton, General Colin Powell, George Lucas, Sir Richard Branson, Marissa Mayer, Tony Robbins, Sheryl Sandberg, the list goes on and on. Dreamforce has spared no expense in bringing in some of the world’s most successful business icons to share their insightful visions with attendees throughout their conferences. This alone is worth the price of admission.
This is a once a year opportunity you do not want to miss.
