Here’s some great activities to add onto your Dreamforce Schdule beginning on Tuesday, August 30th, 20ll at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Don’t know what Dreamforce is and you are in Business? Oh my, well you need to read on to find out what all of the excitement is about and visit the Dreamforce Website for more information.

Salesforce, the San Francisco based cloud-computing company, is hosting its annual Dreamforce Conference and Expo from Tuesday August 30th to Friday September 2nd at Moscone Center. The conference will play host to a plethora of companies surrounding the Cloud, Social Networking and Business arenas, along with a host of leaders in cloud computing – and, yes, Metallica will be playing its first corporate gig ever – giving them an opportunity to talk about the industry’s future. More than 42,000 people have registered to attend this record breaking event.

Salesforce, traditionally makes various announcements and launches new products and acquisitions at Dreamforce, is expected to make a lot of noise about its fairly new application, Chatter. It will focus on the year-old social-networking application for businesses, which Salesforce began to offer just last year. The company claims it is being used by more than 100,000 businesses. Event City™ will soon launch it’s own Chatter on the Event City Network™ to hopefully partner with the company to reach out and create a channel for the Events & Creative Industries.

Who said work couldn’t be fun, too? One of the most important and relevant reasons for attending Dreamforce is the ability to network. It is one of the strongest mainstream, corporate conventions that offers the business person many great networking opportunities. We hope you are ready to network, dine, toast, and make new contacts? Be sure to bring along your business cards for the scores of fantastic networking activities they’ve got in store for you at Dreamforce!

Here is just a few of the Dreamforce opportunities and events:

  1. After visiting the Dreamforce website it seems as if they were issuing not only a FREE Pass to the Expo and access to the Expo Floor, but also to the widely publicized Metallica Concert. BOGUS! No Metallica and minimum amount of time on the show floor! Have you ever heard of such a thing??

    I appreciate that in this article there is no mention directly or indirectly about seeing Metalica FOR FREE. Although I personally have seen that mention on the Website, and it is IMPLIED in almost all of the Ads I have seen for the Dreamforce Show. Actually, not only did a number of us not get to participate in the Metallica festivities directly (but some of us watched from the sidelines which was really a better shot to the stage than most had), even though we had FREE Expo Passes, they were only good for certain hours, then we had to leave, or at least couldn’t get back in if we left the Exhibit hall and came back 10 minutes later. What a JOKE!

    Although what I saw at the Expo was really good, even though I arrived 35 minutes prior to my Expo Pass time slot ending, if I had known it was ending I never would of left the show floor. Like I said, good expo, the overall presentation and MANAGEMENT of the expo was truly a letdown, a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. I wonder how many more like me lost a chance to visit the expo floor and meet some of those exhibitors who spent a great deal of money just to be there? Dreamforce – A good convention, Management and Expo operations – Far from dreamy.

    Until next time, this is big Joe signing out!

  2. Great article about the Dreamforce event. Our company was very let down by the mislead advertising campaign about the concert at dreamforce 2011 in SF. This years dreamforce was very poorly managed.

  6. Wow. Many, many products. We love the technical mixed in with the Special Events and Hospitality industry. I just don’t understand how you guys find this great stuff that so pertains to what I do professionally, from the same shows I attend (CES and MacWorld), and I never find anything as cool.

    I especially liked the Heinekin Beer Tender product from a couple of years ago, what a cool product. We have purchased 6 of them and they work awesome. Thx 4 all u do…
