Relationships are built morning and night throughout the event. Dreamforce is designed to connect you to people you can learn from, both in the online Dreamforce community prior to the event, and with the many networking events throughout the conference.  Between the Welcome Reception, the Dreamforce Gala, the Dreamforce Plaza activities, partner parties, and more, you will have so many opportunities to spend time with your peers and learn from their experiences.

Plus, the Dreamforce experience doesn’t end with the conference.  Online and offline communities are created to continue networking opportunities and the sharing of knowledge and information.
