Here are the things to expect:
Main Keynote: This is about the latest and greatest announcements related to Salesforce and is typically kicked off by Marc Benioff, Salesforce’s founder and Co-CEO of Salesforce.
True to the Core: This is about asking questions from Salesforce executives and Product Managers. It offers unfiltered view of forward-looking roadmap of Salesforce and this makes it immensely popular. The audience gets a transparent response even for tough questions – the tradeoffs and why a certain feature is taking longer time to be released.
Dreamfest is about enjoying a concert at the baseball stadium with a celebrity like a legendary band or performer. It has hosted Alicia Keys, Metallica, Bruno Mars, and Fleetwood Mac among many others in the previous years. The best part is that this performance contributes to the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, delivering a Grammy-stage worthy performance.
