It’s the final countdown. T-minus one week until Salesforce’s 18th Dreamforce

Since its inception in 2003, Dreamforce evolved into far more than just a technology conference. It’s an unparalleled experience that brings together the entire Salesforce community, including partners and platinum sponsors like Qualified. From inspiring keynotes, groundbreaking innovation, and the hottest musical performances, Dreamforce leaves attendees feeling inspired and motivated to build the future of technology.

Instead of packing our bags and making our way to San Francisco with our 170,000+ closest friends, we’ll be experiencing the magic from the comfort of our couches this year. For the first time in its 18-year history, the event will be exclusively on Salesforce+, a new streaming service for live experiences and original content series—think Netflix for businesses. From being early adopters of Twitter during #DF08 to making its Salesforce LIVE broadcast debut during #DF10, this has been a decade long vision in the making. 

As we gear up for yet another unforgettable Dreamforce 2021, let’s relive some of our favorite moments from year’s past:

  • 2021: Digital is the name of the game. The magic of Dreamforce will be exclusively on Salesforce+ as a curated experience that viewers can live and relive anytime, anywhere. We also expect to see Slack take center stage.
  • 2020: Salesforce hosted a virtual Dreamforce, attracting more than 140 million views, and its first ever Dreamforce To You, bringing a version of Dreamforce tailored to individual customers around the world.
  • 2019: Dreamforce gathered Trailblazers from 120 countries and 50 U.S. states, with more than 171,000 registered attendees and 16 million online viewers. It also brought in an impressive line of speakers, including former President Barack Obama, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Megan Rapione, World Cup and Olympic Champion, and more.
