Dreamforce 2021 will include many free resources for marketers.

Marketers are seeing their efforts in a new light as they keep pace with today’s digital-first, work-from-anywhere world. In Salesforce’s latest State of Marketing report, 77% of marketers reported feeling that their work provides greater value now than it did a year ago. But growing the skills to deliver that value is a work in progress. As we juggle major privacy changes, always-on holiday planning, customer data transformations, and more, it’s clear that our profession isn’t slowing down. And we can’t, either. 

The good news is there are plenty of tools to help you. Dreamforce — the global family reunion for the Salesforce community — kicks off Sept. 21, and it includes many free resources. Our Dreamforce for marketers experience will include interactive and on-demand sessions to help you understand your customers better, humanize every moment, and optimize your impact to build better relationships.

Here’s a look at highlights of live and on-demand Dreamforce sessions. Download our Dreamforce for Marketers guide for more details.
