The news that we’ve been waiting for – dates for Salesforce’s main events have been announced, including their flagship conference, Dreamforce, and World Tour chapters in multiple regions around the globe.
Last week’s SFB Weekly celebrated Salesforce events returning, in-person – coincidentally, the dates are now available. We’ve been on the “edge of our seats” in excited anticipation for months!
Virtual events during the pandemic proved that Salesforce, its partner ecosystem, and community could all adapt and innovate at the same time. Having said that, we’ve missed the energy and spontaneity of in-person interactions. There really is no substitute, especially when it comes to Salesforce events.
The main Salesforce events season will run from March to June, with Dreamforce happening in September. Here’s which Salesforce-hosted and community-organized events are happening, and when:

Types of Salesforce Events
Starting with the largest Salesforce events, there are:
- Dreamforce: Salesforce’s main conference takes place in San Francisco annually. Attracting 170,000+ attendees (in non-COVID times), and taking place over multiple days, it qualifies as one of the largest tech conferences globally. Salesforce pretty much shuts down the city of San Francisco for a week whilst attendees flood the city to learn and network.
- World Tour: As the name suggests, World Tour chapters happen in major cities across the world including New York, London, Paris, Sydney. These are one-day events with 10,000k+ attendees that take inspiration from Dreamforce.
- Specialized events: Salesforce hosts specific, but still large-scale events for certain specialists. Take TrailblazerDX (formerly TrailheaDX), which is aimed at Salesforce Admins and Developers. Or Connections, the go-to conference for Salesforce marketers (digital marketing and commerce).
- Basecamps: Similar to World Tours, but on a smaller scale and hosted in smaller cities across the world.
- Community Events: A decade ago you may have found only two or three of these community organized events – now, you will find them all across the globe. Organizers dedicate their own time and energy to making these events a reality, fueled by their passion for knowledge sharing.
- Salesforce User Groups: There are thousands of user groups across the globe. These groups typically meet up once a month for presentations from other group members and discussions on trends and pain points. You will find that larger cities will have one group for every specialization.
