Dreamforce Guide: 5 Tips to Amplify your Experience

Dreamforce Guide: 5 Tips to Amplify your Experience

Dreamforce is coming.   And it’s going to be bigger than ever before!  With 120,000 estimated attendees, 350 vendors showcasing more than 1,000 solutions, over 1,000 different sessions, and Green Day headlining at AT&T park you’ll want to be sure you’re prepared to make the most of your experience.  This is your official Jitterbit Dreamforce guide.

 

Here are some tips to make sure you Have the Time of Your Life at Dreamforce:

1. Network and make new connections

This may seem obvious, but it’s easy to get distracted by the many sessions and keynotes going on, fraternizing with your colleagues, and trying to keep up with work and emails.  Slow down, look up from your mobile device, and converse with the other attendees!  You never know what new ideas you might come back with from a Salesforce MVP, vendor, or Sheryl Sandberg (hey,you never know who you’ll bump into roaming the halls of Moscone).  Want to make sure you network with Jitterbit? Schedule a meeting with us!

2. Download the Dreamforce app

The app provides all sorts of useful information, such as the conference layout, session times, and even allows you to create a personal schedule of Dreamforce events.  This wouldn’t be a bad time to grab a spare battery or charger.   May the app be your Dreamforce guide. Hint: Search for “Jitterbit” to find our Chatter group.  We’ll be publishing great content before, during, and after Dreamforce.

3. Pace yourself

Dreamforce offers a lot to see, tons of sessions to attend, and keynotes to learn from.  Don’t try to do it all at once – you’ll get overwhelmed.  Tying into tip #2, use the app to schedule yourself, leaving time to network, hydrate, and eat between events.  Jitterbit is hosting a number of meetups and cocktail hours for those times you want to network and unwind.   More details below.

4. Play exhibitor lotto

Enter every contest you can.  The number of prizes is staggering.  This is your chance to win some serious loot.   Jitterbit is giving away a lot of cool swag and an amazing Grand prize trip for two.  You’ll have to stop by booth #N1911 to learn more 😉

5. Check out at least one keynote

Some the biggest names in the industry are speaking at Dreamforce.  Keynotes are also where the newest Salesforce features are announced.  With headliners like Marc Benioff, Sheryl Sandberg, Marissa Mayer, and Deepak Chopra, there is sure to be someone of unique interest to you.

Bonus tip: Check out the sessions with Jitterbit!

We are part of 6 different sessions this year, and we’re excited to be joined by our customers: Salesforce themselves, Bayer, Ricoh, Skullcandy, and Sika.   Sign up through the Dreamforce site or app to hear how these great companies have used agile integration to transform their businesses.

Be sure to check out our Dreamforce microsite for all the details on Jitterbit’s presence at the show.  We’re going to be everywhere and the site works on your mobile device so you can track us all week long.   See you there!
