In 3 weeks (25-28 of September) more than 170, 000 Trailblazers and Salesforce customers will make the pilgrimage to San Francisco to attend the biggest IT event in the world. Even more people will be around the city for all the festivities that comes along with Dreamforce. Last year former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama and Actor Ashton Kutcher were among the high profile speakers along with CEOs, entrepreneurs and Salesforce innovators.
Naturally, not everyone can attend the full event, it can be costly, especially if you live outside the US. But if you can’t make it to Dreamforce this year, don’t worry, nhere are three ways for you to attend without getting out of pocket.
- Stream it live
Last year a staggering 10 million viewers tuned in for the latest news and keynote speakers via Stream Live during the 4 days. You will also be able to view on demand if you are in another timezone or just busy with you know, work.
