One thing is for sure – Of the four days at Dreamforce, you can never expect to find a dull moment. Dreamforce offers a myriad of opportunities to its attendees:
- Opportunity to learn
The lifeblood of the event is learning in a manner that is both insightful and fun. With over 2,700 keynote and breakout sessions, training and certification opportunities, chances to get a hands-on experience of new technology and products, test-driving thousands of customer success solutions, the opportunity to gain an intimate understanding of Salesforce products at demo stations, and a whole lot more, Dreamforce never falls short of rendering a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
- Opportunity to be inspired
At Dreamforce, take part in engaging and thought-provoking discussions by various reputed industry leaders, pioneers, and luminaries. Some of the noteworthy sessions of Salesforce 2018 include the discussion on the climate crisis by former Vice President Al Gore and that on ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) delivered by Tristan Harris.
- Opportunity to give back
“Joys shared get multiplied whereas sorrows shared get divided,” and this is an adage Salesforce lives by. Amazing things only take place when we give back to the community that has poured so much into us. At Dreamforce, you also have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people who need it the most by partnering with several non-profit organizations. You can volunteer for either packing backpacks with local school supplies or kits for victims of natural disasters, participating in a book drive, and much more.
- Opportunity to have fun
With all of the above, how can one leave fun out of the mix? Dreamforce offers many opportunities to have fun such as e-connecting with both online and offline friends, taking selfies with Astro and the gang, exploring the beautiful city of San Francisco, and socializing via several power breakfasts, lunches, meetups, and parties (especially the ultimate party of Dreamfest).
