This year is our first time at Dreamforce and we’ve been doing a lot of research and preparation to ensure we get the most out of the event. Here is a round-up of some of our favourite resources and links we’ve used to help us prepare for an epic week in San Francisco as both attendees and sponsors.
We’d love it if you stopped by our booth at N1005 in the north expo to say hello since we’re new to the event! Best of luck with preparing for Dreamforce and feel free to connect with us on Twitter at @Lurniture and @SDavidBloom anytime.

Partying & Socializing at Dreamforce
There are over 70 parties scheduled throughout the Dreamforce week. Hosted by a range of companies from Salesforce, LinkedIn to EventBrite and at a range of venues from bars, discos and even CrossFit gyms, there seems to be something for everyone. In addition to parties, there are over free 10 lounges offering a sanctuary for you to relax, recharge and sip complimentary coffee.
