I was a Dreamforce and San Francisco newbie last year but one of my biggest saving graces was google maps! Yep, google maps! I looked my hotel up as well as where the nearest pharmacy, grocery store, (eh hem) shopping mall and tram line were. I also looked-up the hotels were my sessions were so I knew what they looked like! By the time I arrived in San Fran, I was navigating around without a map and showing my colleagues where to go.
Another thing I did was watch every Road to Dreamforce there was on YouTube, even the old ones, so I knew what to expect. I was somewhat the Dreamforce expert in my group of Dreamforce Veterans! They kept asking me “how do you know all this information?” and the answer is simple: Road to Dreamforce! I even snagged a selfie with one of the hosts, Marissa Kraines.
Complete the Trailhead module on Dreamforce 16. It is a great guide on Dreamforce going from shoes to wear to things to do after Dreamforce! (apart from sleep!) defo one to check out!
Make sure your photo is updated on the success community. This will be on your badge at Dreamforce! I must have taken 20 selfies before decided on this one.
Download the Dreamforce app. It will keep you up-to-date with all the goings-on at Dreamforce and includes maps if you get lost!
