Dreamforce, Salesforce’s annual cloud computing conference, will be held October 4-7 in San Francisco, and we’ll be at the Cloud Expo in booth 1701 if you’d like to stop by! With Dreamforce just a few weeks away, we’re busy wrapping up the rest of our planning for this can’t-miss event.
We’ve attended or exhibited at Dreamforce for several years, and it’s always a great experience and a chance to catch up with customers and partners, hear some amazing speeches, enjoy great entertainment and parties, and learn a lot in the process. Speaking of parties, we’ll be sponsoring two! We’d love for you to join us at Idealist Consulting’s Engagement Party on October 6 (it’s the classiest nonprofit event of the year), or the Appirio, DocuSign, Conga joint-hosted party that looks to be the hottest after-party at Dreamforce! (Insider tip: you can win VIP passes to this event at our booth, so that’s one more reason for you to stop by!)

To hear how you might want to prep for the big event, head on over to LinkedIn, where Ashley McAlpin, VP of Marketing, is sharing some tips on prepping for a worthwhile, productive, and fun Dreamforce experience. Here’s an excerpt:
Last year, Dreamforce drew over 100,000 people. This year, with keynotes from the likes of Melinda Gates, Mark Cuban and Astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly, and a musical performance from U2, there’s no reason it won’t be even more awesome (if that’s even possible). With all that there is to do, see, and experience at Dreamforce, it’s possible to get a little overwhelmed. To help you plan for the four-day event, here are our tips for having a productive and fun-packed Dreamforce 2016:
1. Know Your Goals
Just like going to the grocery store without a list, visiting Dreamforce without defined business goals is not the best strategy for success. If you’re running a booth for your company at Dreamforce, set goals and intentions for the kinds of connections you want to make. At our booth, we’ll be sharing information about our new Mobile App, receiving the some of the highest levels of security certification, and what 2017 holds for our team—exciting stuff! And, of course, we’ll be talking to people about how to streamline their businesses through web forms.
We hope to see you at Dreamforce! You can schedule a time to chat with us here!
