It’s not easy to pinpoint what not to miss while at Dreamforce. But if it were me, then I would definitely put Dreamforce Parties 2018 second on my to-do list after the conference itself. Most of these Salesforce parties at Dreamforce are thrown by Salesforce itself or its partners.
Since we are in the same boat, to help you out, I have put together a list of Dreamforce 2018 Parties to keep you updated.
Before you jump to the list, I’d like to share another exciting news. Prior to Dreamforce, we have an exciting contest that you might be interested in. By signing up for it, you will be eligible to win some exclusive Whatfix swags, Amazon gift vouchers and get an entry to win our Grand Prize at our Dreamforce booth (#1921).
Interested? You can register for the contest by clicking on the banner below.
Now, let’s get onto the list of Dreamforce Parties 2018.
FYI, there is no particular preference order for the following list. To make it easier, I’ve instead listed it according to the date scheduled.
