Dreamforce 2015 is just around the corner. I’ve got my ticket and my bags will soon be packed with flat-heeled shoes and comfy clothes.

There isn’t any other event like Dreamforce and if you’re in Sales or Marketing, which you probably are if you’re reading my blog, you’ll really miss out if you don’t go.

There are over 1500 sessions scheduled—592 if you filter by role for sales operations or sales professional, and 438 if you filter by Marketing as a role.

Clearly, there’s a wealth of knowledge and networking to be had at the event. And speaking of networking, registration for Dreamforce is projected to top 150,000 people!

The CloudExpos at Moscone Center North, and West are where you’ll find all kinds of technology for running your business on the Salesforce platform. Keep in mind, there will be 400 booths and the floor is crowded; it’s tough to maneuver so don’t bring any roller bags and definitely don’t bring any heavy laptop bags with you.

The other thing to keep in mind is that not every solution provider caters to marketing or sales. If you’re there to see the best marketing and sales tools, you’ll want to plan ahead. Our annual Walking Trail of Must See Tools will be coming out soon. It will tell you exactly which booths to stop at and which events around town are worth attending.

If you’re interested in even more tips, join me, PROS, Velocify and Conversica for a webinar on August 25th, where we’ll be reviewing the latest trends in sales technology and what to look for at Dreamforce. I’ll be sharing results from our recent B2B Sales Tools Survey: Consideration, Acquisition, and Performance. This is new information that no one else has.

In the webinar, I’ll be covering things like:

  • How CRM usage varies by company size
  • How type of sales tool use varies
  • Favored sales tools
  • At what point most organizations consider sales tools
  • The impact sales tools have on performance
  • And more

Register even if you can’t attend the webinar and you’ll get access to the recording. You’ll also get a copy of the Survey Report with all the details!

And last, don’t forget… I want to meet you! If you’ll be in San Francisco for Dreamforce in September, register now for the Smart Selling Tools VIP Dream Lounge. You’ll hear 16 great sales speakers, you can get a free LinkedIn profile picture taken by a professional, there will be refreshments, and chances to win a $1000 cash prize or an Apple Watch.

It will be a September to Remember.
