Blaze your trail to better, smarter customer engagement at the digital marketing, commerce and customer service event of the year: Salesforce Connections 2018.

This June, the city of Chicago will be inundated with Trailblazers like you. People who are committed to creating amazing brand experiences and connecting with their customers in a whole new way. At Salesforce Connections, on 12–14 June, the worlds of digital marketing, commerce and service will merge, offering three days of learning, inspiration and fun – and you’re invited.

This smaller, more intimate event will provide you unprecedented access to industry leaders who are delivering compelling end-to-end customer experiences. Pick their brains, and learn how to transform your organisation in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and meet the new customer expectation of smart and connected experiences.

Although, we get it! Chicago is a fair hike for us Aussies and Kiwis. But, we have a few reasons (five to be exact) why you should be part of the APAC Ohana attending Salesforce Connections.

1. It’s the marketing, commerce and service learning opportunity of the year
