Dreamforce Survival Guide

Set Clear Goals

Dreamforce is Salesforce's biggest annual event. The organizers, participants, speakers, exhibitors, media … everybody takes it seriously, and so should you. From improving skills to building strong business relationships, setting ambitious and yet realistic goals will help you benefit the most of your visit. Take a moment and think about what your team and company pain points are, identify learning and networking sessions that could solve those issues, brainstorm with your team and make a list of three to four attainable goals.

Schedule Meetings in Advance

When it comes to meetings, it's not just about numbers. Your time is valuable and you want to make sure you are using networking and business development opportunities strategically. That takes planning. Salesforce’s sponsor list, with clickable logos to brief company facts, booth number and other useful information makes things easier. Vonage’s NewVoiceMedia is a sponsor at Dreamforce. Stop by our booth 1610 and have a sneak peek into our new look (yes, we’ve rebranded!), learn more about our new products. With our world’s most flexible cloud communications platform we can help you take your customer experience to the next level. Book a demo at the Vonage Hub.

Networking Events, Happy Hours and Parties...Oh My!

Dreamforce is all about learning and business but it’s packed with fun events, parties and happy hours, too. As you sift through party lists - and there are many good ones out there - think of the potential buyers and where you can find them. What can be better than learning and talking business over refreshments? Here are some options to pick from.

Choose Your Dreamforce Sessions and Workshops Wisely

With so many good sessions, offered it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The best way to go about choosing smart is to dedicate some time in advance and hash out a game plan. You want to attend sessions that are the most beneficial to you. Think of these in terms of learning opportunities, networking and new ideas. Which session will help further build your skills? Where will you meet your buyers? Which pain points would your company like to solve the most? Salesforce’s handy search box makes it easy to narrow down the results to get the best match. Keep in mind, new sessions are added almost every day. Be sure to check out Dreamforce agenda builder: it is a great tool to build out a strong road map.

Have Your Resources Ready

Now that the planning part is taken care of, think of what you will need to be mobile, connected and informed. Pack lightly, make sure you have contact information of your team members. Print out your agenda, have a portable charger and finally, download the following apps: Lyft/Uber, Dreamforce/Salesforce app, LinkedIn & LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
