Matthew McConaughey. Earvin “Magic” Johnson. Jane Goodall. Bono. The Red Hot Chili Peppers. When it comes to keynoters and headliners, Salesforce’s Dreamforce, the biggest software conference in the world, never disappoints.
2022 Dreamforce kicked off Tuesday in the heart of San Francisco and with it ride the hopes of downtown San Francisco’s entire convention complex for pandemic recovery.
Started in 2003, Dreamforce is much more than just a conference. It’s attended by people at every level and from every industry. As recently described by Erin Oles, brand experiences and event marketing in the Salesforce blog, “Dreamforce brings together the global Salesforce community for learning, fun, community building and philanthropy. Trailblazers from all over the world gather to share their insights, successes, and learn the latest in industry innovations.”
This is the first full Dreamforce conference since 2019. In 2020, Salesforce canceled its in-person event, and in 2021 it held a mostly indoors hybrid event due to COVID-19. Though Dreamforce will be using all the space in Moscone Center’s three buildings from September 20 to 22, it’s known as much for what goes on outside the convention center walls.
