Dreamforce, the most popular conference for Salesforce users, starts this year on the 25th of September at the Moscone exhibit center in San Francisco. With over 2,700+ breakout sessions, training and certification opportunities, as well as hands-on demos, it’s an incredible opportunity for learning and developing your career. It’s also an opportunity to network and mingle with like-minded professionals, and – why not – have some good hard-earned fun.
This year, Salesforce has peppered in over 150 festive and entertainment events over the four days of the conference. We peered over the list and we were not disappointed. We’ve singled out some of our favorite parties at Dreamforce, and you can find the full list here for reference. Some of these are simply networking and learning events disguised as ‘parties,’ but we’ve hand-picked only the best opportunities for entertainment and good food.
Hurry up and book your spot, these events usually sell out fast!
Power Up for Dreamforce
This exclusive event sponsored by Simplus includes some pretty appealing entertainment options. You can attend the Vault 54 After Hours Party at the Temple night club with DJ Malachi or the very exotic Beats Antique Takeover Party (Thirsty Bear Brewery).
The Dreamforce Premier Silent Disco
With three DJs and an open bar, the silent disco sponsored by Conga has to be one of the best events of the conference. You can come and unwind from your first full day of Dreamforce at the Thirsty Bear Brewery, you won’t regret it.
Taco Tuesday at Dreamforce
No business conference is complete without a Taco Tuesday event, so be sure to get a ticket to the Holy Guacamole Taco Tuesday event at Nick’s Crispy Tacos and Rouge Lounge. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Mission 22.
North Party at the Mezzanine
Sales professionals from BeNeLux and Nordic regions can get together at the North Party at the Mezzanine. This mingle and networking event has food stations from different parts of San Francisco like the Castro, Chinatown, the Mission and North Beach, so don’t miss it.
Chinatown Food Crawl and Party at the Temple
Certain.com is sponsoring a Chinatown Food Crawl on Tuesday, September 25, so head on over to the Li Po Lounge in the historic Chinatown of San Francisco. Crawl starts in the wee hours of the morning (7AM) for all soy sauce lovers.
The same company is sponsoring a great bash at the Temple night club from 9PM on Tuesday, so if you love the night life you’re covered.
Oktoberfest at Dreamforce
Oktoberfest happens in September at Dreamforce, and you wouldn’t want to miss it! Head on over to the Tehama Grasshopper Wednesday afternoon for some beer, bratwurst and more beer.
Mettalica Benefit Concert for Kids
Metallica will be holding a benefit concert at Dreamforce, with proceedings going to UCSF Benioff’s Children’s Hospital. If you have $1,000 to spend on the ticket, you shouldn’t miss it, it’s for a good cause. The event will be followed by an after party featuring MC Hammer.
ALL of Anaplan’s Events
We don’t usually endorse other companies, but pretty much all of Anaplan’s sponsored events at Dreamforce seem like something you wouldn’t want to miss. They have a cool HQ in San Francisco where they will hold a roof deck party with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. They are hosting a ping pong tournament and party on Wednesday and also doing a free morning yoga session. Namaste!
