Dreamforce 2022 Survival Guide

Are you ready? Dreamforce is back in person this year and it is less than 2 weeks away! We created a complete survival guide with everything you need to know to conquer Dreamforce 2022. This complete guide includes 5 survival tips, must-see events, Dreamfest information, and of course, the nightlife parties/events!

5 Survival Tips

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. One tip could be to put your phone on Airplane Mode and use as much Wifi as you can. With tons of attendees trying to access cell phone networks, your phone will die quick!

Stay Hydrated and Pack a Snack

Hydration will be key. You are going to be talking, walking, and networking all day. Pack a good snack for the event as it’s possible 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.

Leave Earlier Than Usual

Whether you walking, taking a 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.

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.

Map and Plan Your Events!

Do not underestimate the size of Dreamforce. For you to successfully attend all desired sessions, you will need to MAP and PLAN every event on the schedule and map.
