Last Minute Tips For Dreamforce


Dreamforce is almost here and our spirits are high. The annual Salesforce event is a great place to network, make new connections and get inspired. Before we all pack our bags and get ready to depart, we wanted to leave you with some last minute tips to help you prepare and get the most out of Dreamforce.

1. Plan Ahead and Have a Schedule

There are going to be a lot of things to do at Dreamforce. Perhaps the most beneficial tip we can give you is to create a program for yourself. Familiarize yourself with what workshops will be taking place, what companies will be at the event and most importantly ask yourself – what do you want to get out of Dreamforce? The key here is preparation.

2. Pack Lightly

Don’t overpack! You will be on the move all the time at Dreamforce so stay light and mobile. If you’re going to bring a backpack then use it to store all the gifts that you’re going to get at the event such as t-shirts and business cards. You don’t need to bring a laptop. Bring your phone, a charger and a power bank if you have one.

3. Write Notes On Your Business Cards

You are going to go through a lot of business cards at Dreamforce so make sure you have enough of them with you. Moreover, you will receive a number of business cards and it may be difficult to remember everyone who you meet. Here’s a helpful tip – write down a few characteristics of the people you meet on their business cards in order to make it easier for you to remember them at a later point in time.

4. Don’t Get Shy

You’re going to meet a lot of new people at Dreamforce. There are going to be lots of opportunities to network and meet new prospects. Don’t over promote your business and make sure you have a quick and effective elevator pitch at your disposal.  This is your chance to shine so there is no time to get nervous or shy!

5. Remember to Take Notes

You are going to be surrounded by new information. Even if you have been to going to Dreamforce since its very beginning, there is always something you can learn and take away from it. Paper and pens will be available at the event so you won’t have to worry about bringing a notebook or any extra looseleaf.

6. Should I Bring a Water Bottle and/or Snacks?

You don’t need to bring a water bottle. There will be water available at the event. If you have a full pass then you will be provided with meals and if you don’t then you’re going to have to find food outside the event. You can bring snacks if you want to, just make sure that they won’t weigh you down.

7. Keep an Open Mind

You are going to see and hear a lot of new things at Dreamforce. At the end of it all, you will have met a ton of new faces and companies and it is perfectly okay if things start to feel a bit of overwhelming. Just remember to keep an open mind, ask questions and have fun!

What is Liid?

Liid is a mobile application that logs calls and emails automatically to Salesforce. You can use it to automatically update your CRM with sales activities, execute daily tasks with the built-in personal assistant, save meetings and add notes by speech-to-text and scan business cards.
