Dreamforce 2017 Cheat Sheet

Topics: Dreamforce 2017

In a month, 170,000 people will be headed to San Francisco for Salesforce’s massive annual conference, Dreamforce.

Top 5 Things To Do at Dreamforce 2017.pngWith the sheer size of the conference, it goes without saying that there are exciting things to do every day, whether it’s your first time going, or you’re a veteran.

How do you choose what you’ll tackle at this year’s conference? To help you prepare, here are our top five recommendations.

1. Attend Impactful Keynote Sessions

Dreamforce attracts top speakers every year, and this year is no different. From former First Lady Michelle Obama to pop culture icons will.i.am and Ashton Kutcher, each speaker will offer powerful insights and impactful content. Marc Benioff kicks off the week with his keynote address on Monday, November 6th. This is a must-see session, especially for anyone attending their first Dreamforce.

2. Help #BenioffMeetJames

James Serra, SpringCM’s Digital Media Guru, is attending his fourth Dreamforce this year. He's a big fan of Salesforce and especially admires the focus on equality and volunteerism that is so much a part of Salesforce culture.  

Marc Benioff has led the charge to instill this culture at Salesforce, and this year at Dreamforce, James has made it his mission meet Benioff and say thanks—but we need your help to make it happen.

Use the hashtag #BenioffMeetJames on Twitter to help us spread the word, and in return we will donate $1 per use of #BenioffMeetJames to the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. If James meets Marc Benioff, SpringCM will double its donation.

3. Participate in Pledge 1%

Pledge 1% is a global movement of corporate philanthropy that integrates giving back into the DNA of companies. Launched in December 2014, Pledge 1% is spearheaded by Salesforce, Atlassian, Rally, and Tides. Over 2,750 companies in 60 countries have taken the pledge to date, and SpringCM is a proud member of the Pledge 1% program.

There will be Pledge 1% activities throughout Dreamforce week, so watch for updates on volunteer opportunities and help make a difference. Outside of Dreamforce, learn how your company can be part of the Pledge 1% movement.

4. Visit the Customer Success Expo

A must-see at Dreamforce each year is the Customer Success Expo. This year over 400 Salesforce partners will be on hand to showcase solutions that easily integrate with the Salesforce platform to solve almost any business problem. Looking to solve a business challenge or add to your technology stack? You’ll find what you need in the Expo.

SpringCM will be a part of the hundreds of exhibitors in Platinum Booth #1118.

5. Learn, Network and Have Fun!

Take the time to map out your favorite breakout sessions each day so that you can get quickly from place to place during the week. While building out your agenda, look for SpringCM’s breakout sessions:

  • #DefendYourDocs: Indestructible Security and Compliance with Document Management
  • Scale Your Nonprofit Using SpringCM and Salesforce
  • Find your Zen with Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM): Best Practices from Industry Leaders 

As an attendee, in addition to breakout sessions, you will have an opportunity to get hands-on training, meet other Salesforce users, and attend plenty of parties. Dreamforce can be overwhelming—don’t forget to stop and enjoy the experience.
