It’s official. We can actually say that we are DAYS away from the year’s biggest technology conference, Dreamforce! Now, this isn’t our first rodeo at the show, but we did learn a few lessons from our inaugural presence last year. With a couple hundred thousand of your closest peers running beside you, it’s easy to get caught up in the…ahem…madness. To ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the big stuff, here’s the top 5 go-to list (in our humble opinion) for Dreamforce 2017.
Benioff, Michelle, Ashton, OH MY! Keynote Sessions
There are some BIG names addressing the crowds this year. I’m not sure there’s anyone we’re itching to see more than former first lady, Michelle Obama, except for powerhouse CEO of Salesforce, Marc Benioff. They’ll be on stage together and you can bet that one of the biggest topics they’ll be addressing is gender equality, in the workplace and beyond.
If faces from entertainment are more your style, don’t get Punk’d this year. Make sure you attend Ashton Kutcher’s session at #DF17 with a discussion on using technology to effect positive changes in the world.
WalkMe Dreamforce Party
Okay. Okay. Shameless plug. Samanage is a Platinum sponsor of the WalkMe Dreamforce Party. In it’s third year, it’s literally going to be the best party of the entire week. Bring your dancing shoes and stop by to see us. DJ Nima will keep the festivities rolling, and it’s a great opportunity to network… and dance…but mainly network?
It’s at Temple Nightclub on Monday, November 6th starting at 8pm.
Register to joins us (it’s free!) at the party RIGHT HERE.
Follow the Pink Converse to the Customer Success Expo
We wanted to make it super easy for you to find us in the Customer Success Expo Hall, as well as in the Service Cloud Lodge. So, of course we stepped up our booth presence in a big way, and we’ll be right next to the Campground. But, to ensure that you know exactly where the Samanage team is at all times, all you have to do is follow the bright pink Converse! Our team will be rocking the shoes all week. Follow them in the Expo!
Visit Our Booth and Support Make-A-Wish
Speaking of following the pink Converse. The whole reason we want to make sure you know where we are is because we are supporting a cause near and dear to us through our Dreamforce presence.
This year, every scan at our booth equals $1 donated to Make-A-Wish Eastern NC. We’ll also have a quick survey available for you to take at our booth, which equals a $5 donation to Make-A-Wish Eastern NC. And, if you stop by our booth and tweet @Samanage, BAM! another $5 donated. See where I’m going?! We love children, especially those in our community. Let’s provide a great wish for one of them…or two… OR even three!
We’ll make an announcement after the show wraps with the donation.
