The Ultimate Guide to Salesforce Events
Salesforce always goes the extra mile to create value for its professionals and end-users. One of the most exciting ways it does this is through Salesforce events held throughout the year—in different locations and online.
For us at Mission Control, attending a Salesforce event is a fantastic way to engage in meaningful socializing and learn more about the world’s number one CRM product.
These events provide salespersons, consultants, partners, and end-users, an avenue to network with other Salesforce professionals, discover new opportunities, and spark ideas on increasing our proficiency in the technology industry.
Are you interested in attending Salesforce events? Here’s a quick overview of the different types of events to help you decide which ones to attend.
The Dreamforce annual event is by far the largest Salesforce event, gathering over 170,000 participants in San Francisco, CA, every year. The event is open to the entire Salesforce community, customers, users, and all business partners. At Dreamforce, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to network, build connections and learn about Salesforce’s latest technological breakthroughs and new features.
2. World Tour
The Salesforce World Tour event is held on various dates through the year in several major cities around the world. These events allow you to network with others in the Salesforce community and build new relationships. You can also access top speakers, industry sessions, keynotes, and more. Anyone can attend a world tour event of their choice, and there’s no registration fee. Better yet, you can choose to attend virtually.
World Tour events in 2022 have included DC, Sydney, London, Tokyo, Dallas, Atlanta, Paris, and New York City.
Salesforce Basecamp events are similar to World Tours but on a smaller scale. They occur in several cities worldwide to enable as many members of the Salesforce community to participate in its annual events. These one-day conferences are free and open to everyone. You can be sure to meet thought leaders who will inform and inspire you to transform your business or make the most of your skillset.
Connections is an event geared toward Salesforce marketers. It focuses on digital marketing, commerce, and customer service. This event takes place in a different US city each year. If you attend a Connections event, you can expect to gain insight into connecting with your customers in new and innovative ways. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage one-on-one with industry leaders and learn from them.
5. Community Group and Dreaming Events
These are community-organized events happening across the globe and come in all shapes and sizes. Salesforce community members dedicate their time and energy to creating these events to offer opportunities for knowledge sharing. The events provide the perfect opportunity to connect, learn, and get inspired by your peers.
Some of the most popular Salesforce community events include:
- Southeast Dreamin’: This is a networking and learning event for Salesforce users. It features over 30 sessions that involve hands-on workshops, keynote presentations, and breakout sessions.
