In just 33 days, Salesforce will once again host hundreds of thousands of attendees at its annual user conference, Dreamforce. People from around the world will make their way to Moscone Center to learn about leading companies and business solutions. The networking at this event is unrivaled, and it’s always exciting to rub elbows with influencers, analysts, and thought leaders. We’re looking forward to the best Dreamforce yet, and the following five things are peaking our excitement: 1. Connecting with our customers One of our favorite things about going to Dreamforce is the opportunity to connect with our customers at the Xactly Kickback. Dreamforce is an incredible conference, but the hustle and bustle of the event can become overwhelming. We make it a priority to provide a calm space for our customers to relax, recharge, and enjoy themselves, as a token of our appreciation for their business. 2. Visiting San Francisco Mark Twain once said, “the coldest winter I have ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” While he said this in artistic jest, the city is notorious for its temperamental temperatures - so check your weather apps ahead of time and come prepared to enjoy all of the wonderful things the city has to offer. 3. Participating in philanthropy Last year, Dreamforce made history by helping to donate 3 million meals for the hungry. The event not only provides a pathway for innovation in technology, but also keeps social corporate responsibility at the forefront of the conversation. 4. Checking out new booth designs We’re always impressed with the out-of-the-box ways that companies decorate and attract people to visit their booths. The creativity is inspiring and the innovative designs add to the energy on the show floor. 5. Listening to keynote speakers like Jessica Alba This year’s keynote speaker line-up is impressive, and one of the sessions we’re really excited for is Jessica Alba’s. She has successfully and impressively made the transition from actress to entrepreneur, and her organization, The Honest Company, which makes non-toxic home products, was recently valued at over a billion dollars. Her hard work has landed her on Forbes Magazine’s Top 8 Women To Watch in 2015 list, and we’re looking forward to the insights we’ll gain from her talk.
