Start Planning Your DF17 Experience

Competing with more than 100,000 attendees, it’s never easy to get into all the sessions you’d like to hit at Dreamforce. That’s why we want to make sure you are among the first to know that the Dreamforce Session Builder is live!

With more than 2,900 sessions to choose from this year, there will be more than a few presentations you’ll want to check out.

We might be a little biased, but these are the four sessions we won’t be missing.
