We’re excited to see you at Dreamforce ’23!
Dreamforce 2023 is finally upon us. Salesforce’s largest event of the year is the ultimate meeting ground for tech enthusiasts and business trailblazers. Whether you’re a CRM wizard, just dipping your toes into the Salesforce ocean, or getting up to speed on AI, Dreamforce 2023 has all the awe-inspiring keynote speeches, workshops, sessions, and hands-on labs to boost your knowledge.
The thing is – this is going to be my very first Dreamforce. I’m beyond excited and want to make the most out of my experience. So, to be as best prepared as I could be, I reached out to lots of people who I know have been and asked them for their best tips. So here are the Zennify team’s top tips for enjoying Dreamforce 2023.
Plan your agenda
Craft out your Dreamforce adventure with the Agenda Builder tool – your golden ticket to creating a personalized line-up of sessions that truly resonate with your interests.
But here’s the deal – you can’t be everywhere at once, so:
Start with your absolute favorite sessions
Don’t fall into the overbooking trap
Leave some precious time to soak in the Dreamforce vibes – savor the atmosphere, and let the excitement wash over you.
It’s all about fully immersing yourself in this epic experience!
Network with intent
Beyond the scheduled sessions, Dreamforce provides a wealth of unparalleled networking opportunities. Dedicate some time to engage with your fellow attendees, recognizing that these interactions may yield invaluable professional connections that can significantly advance your career. Remember to pick a time and a place to meet so the meet up happens.
Get hands-on with interactive activities
Participate in quests or hackathons. These events are great opportunities to get inspired, test out new ideas, and meet new folks. On a related note: while event swag is tempting, keep luggage space limitations in mind and prioritize items that truly matter.
Embrace the keynote
Don’t skip the major keynotes. They’re filled with valuable insights and can be truly energizing. Lines can be very long so go early or opt to find a spot like in the Zenn Sky Lounge where we’ll be streaming the main Keynote.
Don’t forget your portable charger(s)
You’ll be exploring all that San Francisco and Dreamforce has to offer, all day long. Keynote sessions, events, and post-event parties can quickly drain your phone’s battery. Bring a charger, recharge at stations like our in the Zenn Sky Lounge to ensure your phone remains fully powered throughout the event.
Comfort over fashion
Ditch the heels and the dress shoes for comfortable shoes. There are plenty of stylish footwear options that won’t leave you with blisters or sore feet. Trust us; you’ll thank us later!
Big cities can sometimes be distracting. Stay vigilant and aware but don’t let fear hold you back from enjoying your time.
