1. A little planning goes a long way
Whether this is your first time at Salesforce World Tour or your third, it is a good idea to take some time ahead of the event to plan out a rough idea of how your day might look.
The event is set to be jam-packed with keynote speakers, customer expos, breakout sessions and more, so it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the day. To ensure you get the most out of your time we recommend taking a look at the World Tour agenda here or on the Salesforce Events App. You will find a brief overview of the timings for the day so you can get an idea of where you want to be heading and when!
Don’t worry if your plan goes a little awry, it is bound to once you start bumping into friendly faces and coming across different activities but having some structure to your day will help you get the most out of your time at World Tour.
2. Salesforce opening keynote
The opening keynote is a must at World Tour! Whether you have been to a keynote before or not, it is worth venturing down to hear about the latest technology and listen to real customer stories. Regardless the reason for your World Tour visit, the keynote is a great way to get an idea of what has been happening within Salesforce and what is coming next.
Make sure to head down to the Keynote Room for 10am (aim to arrive 15 minutes earlier) this year to listen to two Salesforce business Leads, Paul Smith and Heather Black, as well as some trailblazer customers, Barclays CEO and Pink CEO, on how to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution.
3. The Customer Expo is not to be missed!
The Customer Expo is a great way to get hands-on and learn more about how other trailblazers are succeeding with Salesforce. It may look overwhelming when you first arrive, but make sure you get stuck in as it is a great way to meet product experts and test out customer success solutions.
And if you are a current or prospective Salesforce customer, you also have the chance to learn about the ways Salesforce Partners can help transform your business. There are loads of people to get chatting to, but if you fancy a chat with one of our CloudShift experts click here to arrange a time with us. And don’t forget to drop by our booth (booth 104) for a chance to win some great prizes, like an Apple Watch and Surface Pro!
4. It’s all about the learning with breakout sessions
From trailhead to product specifics, there is a wealth of knowledge to be learnt and it is a great opportunity to hear customer success stories. If this piques your interest, CloudShift customer PHS are talking about their experience with Salesforce. Head down to Expo Theatre 1 at 12:30pm to listen in or find out more here.
There are hundreds of sessions throughout the day, kicking off from 8:30am, and with all sessions being first come, first served we definitely recommend having a look through the list here before the event!
5. Closing keynote with David Walliams
Much like the opening keynote, the closing keynote is definitely worth attending and probably a welcome sit down after a busy day on your feet! This year Salesforce will be speaking with David Walliams OBE, an English actor, comedian, writer and television personality. This keynote will discuss the importance of empowering children’s literacy in the UK with David Walliams, who is a renowned children’s author, having sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.
Paul Smith and David Walliams will discuss how to upskill the workforce of the future in the fourth industrial revolution, which will no doubt be a thought-provoking and inspiring talk, one definitely not to be missed! Make sure to head down to the keynote room for 4:00pm to bag yourself a seat ready for this fireside chat.
6. Stay and chat – there is no need to rush off at 5pm!
After a busy day, it’s time to unwind and network! You’ll be able to replenish with some food and drink whilst networking with fellow trailblazers into the evening. This is great chance to share your experience of the day with like-minded professionals.
We hope to see you at Salesforce World Tour, and don’t forget to stay involved on social with the hashtag #salesforcetour!
