Dreamforce 2022 is back in-person, and it’s bigger than ever. As a Salesforce ISV partner, Korn Ferry is proud to be an event sponsor. We asked our Salesforce Trailblazers Rob Sparno and Shirley Costa – both veterans of previous events – to tell us about the top 10 things not to miss, and how you can get the most out of Dreamforce. 

What is Dreamforce?

Dreamforce is Salesforce’s legendary annual in-person event. It’s the largest software conference in the world and an unmissable experience for anyone in the Salesforce community.  

This giant gathering of customers, partners and employees is a fantastic opportunity to learn, connect, have fun and give back. Trailblazers from all over the world are coming together to share their insights, successes and learn the latest in industry innovations. As Rob Sparno told us: “This isn’t your average trade show. You should come to Dreamforce expecting to be challenged, to be inspired and to learn new things.”
