Are you ready? Dreamforce is two weeks away and it is time to get ready  to conquer it. Since we know you have a lot on your mind, we created a survival guide to help you prepare. Here are some survival tips to stay at the top of your game:

1. Bring a Portable Phone Charger

The last thing you want is your phone or tablet dying in crucial parts of the day at Dreamforce. If you have a portable charger. pack one and if you don’t, buy one. Your devices will die faster than you think due to the venues and presence of other attendees’ devices.

Extra Tip: Put your phone on Airplane Mode and use as much Wifi as you can. With over 300K attendees trying to access cell phone networks, your phone will die quick!

Some Battery Packs we recommend:

Mophie power station XXL

Anker PowerCore 10000

2. Leave Earlier than Usual

Whether you walking, taking a taxi/lyft/uber, the Bart, a bicycle, or any mode of transportation, LEAVE EARLY. Traffic is going to be crazy during Dreamforce and you don’t want to miss crucial sessions or meetings because you are LATE.

3. Stay Hydrated and Pack a Snack

Hydration is going to be key. You are going to be talking, walking and networking all day and you do not want your throat to get dry or lose your voice on the first day.

Pack a good snack for the event. You are going to lose track of time and forget to eat. You do not want to lose energy during Dreamforce so pack something to keep your energy levels at high capacity.

Extra Tip: Hydrate before Dreamforce. Drink a lot of water the weekend leading into Dreamforce to make sure you’re ready for action.

4. Wear Comfortable Shoes

The last thing you need is your feet killing you. Do not wear uncomfortable shoes or new shoes you have not worn yet. If you do, your feet will hate you and you will be in pain. Don’t let your feet be the reason you miss out on important sessions.
