Congratulations! You've made it to Connections: the digital marketing, commerce, and customer service event of the year.

We’re excited you'll join us for three amazing days of inspiring keynotes, engaging demos, hands-on activities, and a whole lot more. Get ready to learn, network, have fun, and, of course, give back.

With over 500 sessions to attend there’s quite a bit to see and do. It's time to get ready for a jam-packed week of learning from your fellow Trailblazers. But we know it can get a little overwhelming at times. That's why we've decided to provide you with a daily snapshot of not-to-be-missed keynotes and events of the day.

Can't join us in person? You can still be a part of the fun. Tune into Salesforce LIVE for live-streamed keynotes, and follow the action at #CNX18 on social.
