We all say it don’t we? Oh look how quickly the year is going by? As I write this, there is just under 129 days until Dreamforce 2017! But that means that Dreamforce 2017 registration is now open. 🙂
As I figure out how to get there this year, the amount of resources to prepare you for this year’s biggest tech conference is phenomenal.
To register, simply head on over to the Dreamforce landing page.
What is Dreamforce?
If you haven’t been lucky enough to go in the past, or are simply new to the Salesforce ecosystem. Dreamforce is the largest tech conference in the world, and it is focused purely on all things Salesforce. Last year over 171,000 people from more than 80 countries registered to attend the conference, and it also had over 15m viewers watched online.
This conference takes over downtown San Francisco for 4 days, and has something for everyone. New customers, old customers, admins, developers, consultants, trainers…. There are so many break out sessions and keynotes happening, it is impossible to see more than a fraction of what is on offer! And for a first timer, can easily be a little overwhelming. And trust me, it can be even if you have attended multiple times! There is just so much to learn and absorb.
And with so many people descending on San Francisco for the annual conference, everyone has something in common… Can you guess what?! Salesforce! 🙂 It is a massive networking opportunity, giving you untapped potential to learn from other users of the platform.
Preparing for 2017 Dreamforce
As Salesforce finalise their plans to take over San Francisco for 4 days in November. You can start to prepare for Dreamforce, and by doing so get the most out of your time there (if you are lucky enough to be going).
First port of call, is this little article on how to convince your boss to go! It highlights so arguments you might be able to use to build the business case for attending. And you can go here to look at key numbers and events from last year’s event.
Now time to look at the agenda of some of the sessions available. Planning if key for an event this large, and you can start planning by looking at the sessions that are now planned.
Salesforce also have a great little Trailhead module on getting the most out of Dreamforce, which you can find here.
With Dreamforce 2017 registration now open, head on over to get the early bird pricing.
And and stay tuned, because next week I will share some of my tips on how to make the most out of Dreamforce 2017!
