The war for attention is on. Those who work in communications and media are on the front lines of consumer engagement and are facing a rapidly changing environment every day. The industry is going through a massive transformation driven by converging competitors and the ever-increasing consumer appetite for bandwidth and content. And there’s no indication of a slow down or surrender in sight; this is the content-obsessed, always-on, digitally-driven world we now live in.
If you’re starting to feel a bit bogged down in the trenches, never fear: Dreamforce ‘18 is just around the corner. Think of it as a four-day bootcamp for winning in the attention economy — except our drill sergeants are friendlier.
If you’re heading to San Francisco on September 25-28th, we’ve got a lineup planned that would make a seasoned network programmer proud. Check out our Communications & Media Trail Map for a comprehensive list of the industry experiences we have planned, and watch this ‘Inside Dreamforce ‘18’ clip for a preview of what’s in store.
