It's the most wonderful time of the year! And no, we're not talking about the holidays yet. (Don't worry, you still have time to get your shopping done!)
We're talking about Dreamforce '18, the most innovative conference in the world, featuring four days of inspiration, giving back, and mingling with fellow Trailblazers — and it's right around the corner! Taking place in San Francisco from September 25-28, Dreamforce is only a couple months away.
Because we are already counting down the days and getting ready for the best event of the year, we're excited to announce that our weekly live broadcast, The Road to Dreamforce is returning for a sixth season. The fun starts July 10 at 11 a.m. PDT with all episodes airing on Salesforce Live.
The Road to Dreamforce is your go-to show for all things Dreamforce (and more!). Each of the 11 episodes will provide a deep dive into topics like: Dreamforce programs, top sessions, newbie tips, and where to eat at the conference. In short, the kind of stuff we know you'll love and actually find useful. Additionally, we'll be putting together featured weekly content segments and special guest interviews. Get breaking news, including Dreamforrest Bands, Keynote speakers, logistical information, and more. And you never know...there might even be a few unexpected Astro sightings along the way!
In true Salesforce style, The Road to Dreamforce is going bigger and better this year — with more guests, more features, and more varied content than ever before. This includes live-streamed conversations with Salesforce executives, behind-the-scenes footage, and a few insider tips for attendees on navigating their trip to San Francisco.
As we get closer to the event, viewers will also be able to ask the Dreamforce team and our guests questions to get answers in real-time during the show. Just use #RoadToDF18 or @mention the presenters themselves when sending us your questions. So, be sure to check out the Dreamforce Facebook and Twitter pages, along with the Dreamforce groups on the Trailblazer Community, where we’ll be sourcing questions and interesting quotes for future episodes. Keep your eyes and ears open for some big time shout outs, too!
Not that we needed to give you more of an incentive to tune in, but we’re also putting together a weekly giveaway with prizes ranging from FREE DREAMFORCE PASSES to speaker meet-n-greets, for starters.
