Dreamforce isn’t only about innovation and technology—it’s also an opportunity to experience the energy, warmth, and support of the global Trailblazer Community.

Whether you're a new or seasoned Dreamforce attendee, there are many opportunities for you to experience the Trailblazer Community at Dreamforce.

Dreamforce is happening September 12-14, 2023. With 3 jam-packed days of the brightest minds shaping our future at the largest and most magical AI event ever, it’s the perfect time to grow your Salesforce network and forge meaningful connections with the Trailblazer Community at Dreamforce.

Making new connections at such a large event can feel intimidating for some of us. Whether you’re looking to find people to eat with at lunchtime, opportunities for networking, or a buddy to attend sessions with, here are a few great ways to connect with fellow Trailblazers at Dreamforce.

Attend our Know Before You Go webinar

Join us LIVE on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, at 8 AM PT for our Know Before You Go webinar to review everything you need to know for Dreamforce! We’re talking about what to pack, a sneak peek at the schedule, how to make the most of the Trailblazer Community at Dreamforce, and some pro tips from our Salesforce MVPs! 

Network onsite in the Community Cove

Throughout the conference, we’ll have dedicated networking sessions based on role, interest, or industry in Community Cove, a gathering spot for community members in the Trailblazer Forest on the first floor of Moscone West. Drop by to learn all the ways you can get involved, from Community Groups to online answers. 

Be sure to check out the Trailblazer Networking schedule (and bookmark it!)

We’ll also have Community Campfires and casual chats with Community Leaders who oversee incredible programs to help everyone succeed with Salesforce. Led by the community, these sessions are an informal but fun way to connect with other Trailblazers worldwide.

Community Cove is also a great home base for first-timers to Dreamforce. Need a few more tips? Check out this Welcome to Dreamforce – First Timer Guide created just for you (and bookmark this one too!)

Join the Flyin’ Solo networking session

Attending Dreamforce alone? It’s natural to feel nervous flying solo… not to mention trying to find where to sit at lunch (hello, first day of school memories!). Join the Flyin’ Solo networking session (Wednesday, September 13, 11:40 AM-12:10 PM) in Community Cove for tips and activities curated especially for attendees looking to connect with the Trailblazer Community at Dreamforce.

Dreamfest is the official celebration of Dreamforce, bringing together Trailblazers from around the world for an epic live concert benefiting the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. You’ll experience an amazing night of entertainment, networking, and fun. Don’t want to go to Dreamfest alone? Join Concert Buddies to meet other attendees before the event. 

Take a break in Mindfulness Meadow

While connection with the Trailblazer Community at Dreamforce is a priority, everyone needs a mental break. Enter Mindfulness Meadow (YBCA Forum, 701 Mission Street). This dedicated space is for attendees to step away from the exhilarating but sometimes hectic nature of Dreamforce. Take time for peace and tranquility by meditating, praying, or simply enjoying a quiet moment. You’ll even meet like-minded Trailblazers in this area.

Can’t make it in person? Tune in on Salesforce+

Join Trailblazers worldwide to watch Dreamforce streaming on Salesforce+, your front-row seat to the world’s largest software event. Connect with Trailblazers by following and posting using the hashtag #DF23 across social and the Trailblazer Community. Join the conversation on the Trailblazer Community in the All Dreamforce group. 

Whether you’re joining us in San Francisco or online, there’s no better time to connect, network, and give back to the Trailblazer Community than at Dreamforce.
