Salesforce’s main technical conference is called Dreamforce which takes place in San Francisco every year. Before the pandemic, Dreamforce used to draw 170,000+ attendees and used to take place for multiple days. Dreamforce is recognized as one of the largest technical conferences in the world. Dreamforce is an atypical conference, not like the other traditional corporate IT conferences. The Salesforce professional or the ‘Trailblazers’ enjoy 2700+ sessions, networking, and many other entertainments at this event. Dreamforce is a pageant of the latest Salesforce innovations that never fails to disappoint.
Salesforce Dreamforce is going to take place on September 21-23, 2021. Few attendees are allowed at the event this year as per covid guidelines, rest attendees will be joining virtually.
Dreamforce 2020 was held virtually due to Covid -19 restrictions, for the first time in the history of 17 years of this event. The virtual event opened up a golden opportunity for the millions of Salesforce professionals who find it hard to attend reaching the venue.

Agenda of Dreamforce 2021:
The sessions will be divided into two main categories, Roles, and Industries.
- Roles- Sales, Admin, Architect, Marketers, Commerce.
- Industries – It is following Salesforce’s big industry Cloud focus and subsequent acquisition spree for specialists. Cloud360 and Industries will have a dedicated channel.
Dreamforce session will be broadcast across 3 Salesforce+ channels, a combination of live, pre-recorded/scheduled, and pre-recorded/on-demand. The proposed agenda is impressive, running all-around-the-clock that will take advantage of the overlap in the 4 onsite time zones (continental Europe, the UK, East Coast, and Pacific) and catering to others (eg. APAC).
Dreamforce Covid Policies:
Salesforce has taken a safety-first approach for this pandemic-affected year. Salesforce has partnered with Pandefence, to maintain the regional COVID protocols and proof of covid-vaccine for US attendees.
Hotels become high in demand during the Dreamforce conference. So attendees need to pre-book a hotel in preferably San Francisco downtown. For those uncertain trailblazers, free cancellation hotels are a great option.
We’re thrilled to bring Dreamforce back as an in-person experience, and we can’t wait to bring all our Trailblazers together for a completely new brand experience. Whether you join us in person or online, it will be the most innovative and immersive Dreamforce ever — another example of how, in this new all-digital world, we can achieve success from anywhere.
– Sarah Franklin, President, and Chief Marketing Officer, Salesforce
