Complete with a theater featuring 20-minute, bite-sized sessions on all things Trailhead, a study hall, a certification exam practice zone, an ask the experts library... and did someone say swag? During your study down-time, you can also check out the fun photo booth to immortalize your memories forever (who doesn't love a good photo op!).

To get ready to take advantage of this great space, check in with your local User Groups to see who will be around to help practice your flashcards or invite people via the Trailblazer Community to schedule a study session of your own. Salesforce experts will be on hand to answer all of your questions. There's no better place to soak up the atmosphere of learning that Dreamforce brings. 

4. Get even more learning in at Trailhead Falls



The fun doesn't stop there! Trailhead Falls in Moscone West will be your one-stop-shop for demos, presentations, workshops, Camp Quick Start, swag, and so much more. (Plus, a little birdy told us the Trailhead keynote will be something to behold...stay tuned for more information at a later date.)

Secure your certification session(s), grab your place at Bootcamp, and get ready to learn like you've never learned before! Trailhead at Dreamforce is THE place to hone your skills, network with the best of the best, and Trailblaze your way to a coveted Salesforce credential.
