Dreamforce ’23: Day 1

Kicking off the Keynotes

Marc Benioff and the gang got the ball rolling with lots of exciting announcements during the opening keynote with special guests. We’re talking AI innovations, free licenses, golden hoodies, and sustainability records.

Read all about the latest news announcements here:

Dreampark Magic

Hollywood backdrop, adventure theme park, wacky wonderland… Nope, it’s simply the much-loved magic of the Dreamforce set! 

Salesforce always put a huge amount of energy and budget into the production side of things, and this year is no exception. Here are some of our favorite spots so far. 

AfterParty GPT

What. A. Night.

After a full-on first day of Dreamforce, it was incredible to see so many Trailblazers letting their hair down under one roof. From food trucks to DJ sets (including a guest performance by Ben!), it’s a night we won’t be forgetting in a hurry! 

A big thanks to our sponsors for making the night possible: Varonis, Hubbl Diagnostics, Autorabit, and Validity.

The AI Agenda

Day 2 was packed with AI-themed sessions, including “The State of Salesforce: Driving Innovation & AI”, featuring our very own Ben McCarthy joined the panel”.

Catch up on the latest AI announcements here:

ThrillFest & Dreamfest 

After we wrapped things up at Dreamforce, it was time to head to our second event of the week: ThrillFest! Trailblazers were invited to enjoy some pre-concert drinks, tasty snacks, and good old-fashioned arcade games. 

A big thanks to our sponsors: Unaric, Celigo, Vertex, and S-Docs.

We then headed over to Dreamfest to see the inimitable Foo Fighters! What a way to wrap up Day 2 – high energy guitar solos, a thunderous atmosphere, and a very happy crowd!

Surprise Celebrity Cameos

When Marc Benioff crashes your interview… 

Taksina Eammano (EVP & GM Field Service) was partway through explaining Salesforce Field Service when the Salesforce Founder himself decided to join us. A Dreamforce highlight we won’t forget in a hurry!

Here’s a familiar face for those who attended Dreamfest – Ben bumped into Odaseva’s Raphaël Fonrouge, who was invited up onto stage to rock out with the Foo Fighters. A true guitar hero!

You can watch the incredible moment here.

A Canine Companion 

Introducing the best boy in the world – here to keep Dreamforce running smoothly. We thank you for your service!

Everyone’s an Einstein

It’s Einstein’s moment, and we saw that iconic hairdo everywhere! 

We’ve enjoyed learning more about all the new capabilities coming our way with the next few releases, as well as how these updates will make life easier for Salesforce professionals.

Dream Team

Presentations, panels, workshops, interviews, parties… A busy but brilliant week!

We’ve all had the best time here at Dreamforce, and we finally managed to get a photo of “Team San Fran” (on the very last day!). A big shout out to the UK team for looking after everything at home. 

Thanks for joining us. Same time next year!
