The Ultimate Dreamforce Checklist
Much like any holiday you go on, having an essentials checklist is imperative and even more so when it comes to Dreamforce. This is the list of must-haves that you simply cannot survive without:
You will be shaking everyone’s hand so hand sanitizer is an absolute no brainer.
Most people believe that everything is within inches of each other. It isn’t. Wear comfortable shoes – your feet will be praising you at the end of a very long (and exciting) day.
You will be taking notes, using social media and whatever else those trusty tablets and phones are for so bring the thing that keeps them all alive – their chargers.
Your phone will be your saving grace for almost everything at Dreamforce – have your apps at the ready and we promise you will make it.
You won’t want to be lugging a heavy laptop around with you for the entirety of the event so be sure to take a lighter option that you can whip out easily whenever, wherever.
If you forget these bad boys, you’re not going to make a great first impression. Make sure everyone remembers you for all the right reasons.
You’re going to have very long days where you will be spending most of it talking so do yourself a huge favour and pack lots of water. You’re going to need it.
As important as water is, you must also remember to bag some snacks because there will be little or no time to pick up a full-on lunch. Think of things that are high in energy like nuts or dried fruits.
Dreamforce tends to give out free bags but just in case, you need something to store all of the outrageous swag that you’re about to collect.
Never underestimate the weather. There’s an infamous Dreamforce that will forever be remembered for it’s washout and everyone got drenched. For days. Don’t let it be you.
As much as we all love technology, we also know that it can fail us at any moment so make sure that you take a printed version of your schedule with you wherever you go. You will be thanking us later.
Keep this with you at all times – you can’t get in anywhere without it. We’ve heard people in the past say ‘do you know who I am?’ to zero reply.
