5 Tips to Flourish Your Dreamforce ’19 Experience

The biggest B2B Cloud Conference in the world ‘Dreamforce’ is less than two months away and Trailblazers from around the world are all set to be a part of this amazing carnival. The entire Ohana is counting down the days and bracing themselves for four days of innovation, inspiration, giving back & learning. With 2700+ sessions, super-sessions and major keynotes – Dreamforce ’19 is all set to take us from now to next. 

Dreamforce, which is scheduled to take place from 19th to 22nd November 2019 in San Francisco is going to be even bigger this time. As the event is quickly approaching and it’s already been sold out, you can expect thousands of attendees joining, the importance of a well-planned schedule is highly recommended. As Dreamforce is not at all a kind of event where you can jump in with an open agenda, one must ensure to have a must-do list of things before taking flight for San Francisco. As a regular Dreamforce attendee, we can share some of the things which can help you flourish your Dreamforce’19 experience. 

Plan your sessions in advance

Dreamforce will spread across an enormous area in downtown San Francisco. With the Moscone Center as the central hub, the event extends to various other places such as Marriott Marquis, InterContinental, the Palace Hotel, Hilton Union Square, the Park Central, and the Westin St. Francisco. With 2700+ sessions & a large spread area, joining all your favorite sessions could be difficult at times. Adding to this, with thousands of other people, you can always expect long queues, delays, and often housefull boards.  

Planning out your favorite sessions in advance and registering them will certainly help you get past all the hassles & save time. Attending consecutive sessions will never help. Entry for session halls starts 10 mins before, and you can be there 15mins prior. Doing a little research on the session topic and the speaker will certainly help you understand things better. Dreamforce is not at all about attending sessions. Always keep some time for customer success expo, networking, and dreamfest. 

Map out Keynotes

Keynotes are one of the biggest inspirations during Dreamforce. Every year some of the biggest industry leaders share their experiences and change the way we think. Dreamforce ’19 Keynotes lineup is not yet finalized as we still have a lot of time left, but we can definitely expect some top industry leaders taking the center stage sharing their stories and inspiring thousands in order to transform they think, work & lead. Before the Dreamforce, you must map out the keynotes you don’t want to miss and plan your calendar. You should reach 30mins prior to get a seat. If in case you missed out on a seat, you can watch it on the live screens inside the Dreamforce plaza. Keynotes will be available in Salesforce Live and YouTube also. 

Customer Success Expo

Every year Dreamforce witness some of the most innovative products. Salesforce partners launch or showcase their groundbreaking solutions at the Customer Success Expo. You can check the official Dreamforce website and take note of the exhibiting companies and their products. A decent amount of research on the partner companies and their solutions will help you understand the solution and how it can help your business. You can always get product-related updates from the official social media channels. It is always good to book a slot before the event for a personalized demo or related discussion. At times, it is very difficult to understand a product in detail and it’s value additions while visiting a booth because of the rush. It is recommended to note the booth numbers of your preferred products for easy access. 

Dreamfest

Dreamforce is half-done without party & fun. Though the entire event is a weeklong celebration with sponsor parties and happy hours all over the city, you can’t leave San Francisco without Dreamfest. Dreamfest featured most of the popular bands and performers, all benefiting UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. Past bands have included Metallica, U2, Bruno Mars, and Alicia Keys. Salesforce hasn’t revealed who they have in store for this year’s Dreamfest, but you can expect an experience of a lifetime to remember. You can take some time off from your regular sessions, keynotes, and customer success expo to enjoy a relaxed time with your fellow trailblazers.

The DataConnectiva Show

As a Salesforce Partner, CEPTES will be a part of Dreamforce’19 as well. Last year Dreamforce was very special for us, as we launched our flagship product DataArchiva at the customer success expo. As the ONLY Native Data Archiving Solution for Salesforce, DataArchiva has positioned itself as a game-changer for Salesforce enterprise customers.

Dreamforce 2018: Key Things to Note

The ginormous B2B Cloud Conference in the world and the biggest carnival for all the Trailblazers around the globe “Dreamforce” is just a month away. The entire Salesforce Ohana is excited and can’t wait for the event to start. Most of us have already booked our tickets and all set to experience the best four days of the year. Four days of innovation, inspiration, giving back and learning. With 2,700+ sessions covering every role in every industry, opportunity to witness latest product innovations, thousands of Trailblazers to learn from, and meeting your Ohana; Dreamforce 18 is everything a Salesforce enthusiastic wish for.

As Dreamforce draws up closer, planning your schedule is the most crucial thing to do. This is not a kind of event where you can just jump in with an open agenda. If you want to come home feeling like a king, you must ensure to prepare a must-do list before leaving for San Francisco. As CEPTES is a  Dreamforce regular, we can share some few key things to note for Dreamforce 2018.

Plan your Sessions

Dreamforce will spread across a huge area in downtown San Francisco. With the Moscone Center as the main hub, the event this year will expand to Marriott Marquis, InterContinental, the Palace Hotel, Hilton Union Square, the Park Central, and the Westin St. Francisco. With 2700+ sessions and a large geographical spread, attending all your favorite sessions could be tough at times. With thousands of Trailblazers spreading across session halls, you can expect delays, long queues and even at times housefull boards.

The only thing which may help you is planning out your sessions in advance and register for them. Attending back-to-back sessions will never work. Remember, you have to get from one location to another location. Try to be there at least 15 minutes before, as the entry for free spaces usually starts 10 minutes prior to a session. A little bit of research on the session will help a lot. Not only going by the topic, you must consider who is the speaker and what kind of information you can expect. Dreamforce is not all about attending sessions, always keep some free time to visit customer success expos to witness next-gen innovative products and product demos.

Map out Keynotes

Keynotes are one of the most popular and inspiring elements at Dreamforce. Every year we get to see few of the big industry leaders speak during the four day long conference. Though the lineup for this year Dreamforce is not yet clear, yet we can expect some big names sharing their stories and inspiring thousands in order to transform the way they think, work, and lead. Before going to the event, you need to prioritize the big keynotes and plan your calendar to accommodate them. You should reach at least 45 minutes before to occupy a front side seat. If in case you missed a seat, then you can watch it on the live screens inside the Dreamforce plaza. In case you want to spend more time in customer success expos exploring products or attending sessions, you can watch keynotes later either via Salesforce Live or YouTube.

Customer Expo

Every year Dreamforce witnesses some of the most innovative products. Before going for the event, don’t forget to do a handful of research on the partner companies or exhibitors who are showcasing their products. It is always good to note your preferred products and follow their social media updates just before Dreamforce to stay updated. It is always advisable to book a slot before the event to avail a personalized product demo or product understanding session. At times, it is very difficult to understand a product in detail while visiting a booth because of the rush. Note the booth number of your favorite products before visiting the customer expo.

As an exhibitor during Dreamforce 2018, we are going to present our flagship product ‘DataArchiva’ at booth #1942. You can book your slot for a personalized demo here.

Dreamfest

Dreamforce has plenty to offer when it comes to party and fun. Sponsor parties and the Dreamfest are two of the most eye-catching events. Dreamfest featured most of the popular bands and performers. So far, Salesforce has not revealed who are going to perform during this year Dreamfest, but as always it is going to be one of the most rocking events. You can take some time off from your regular sessions, and keynotes to enjoy a relaxed time with your fellow trailblazers.

Lookout for DataArchiva

Much like all the other trailblazers, we at CEPTES are super excited for Dreamforce 2018. This year’s Dreamforce is going to be special for us, as we are going to launch our flagship product ‘DataArchiva’ during the event. DataArchiva, which is already a Gartner listed and US Gov Cloud Ready application is the only Salesforce native application that can archive Salesforce data. By addressing customer pain points, DataArchiva can save significant data storage cost while enhancing application performance.
