Did 2019 sneak up on anyone else? The fact that we’re already midway through January is blowing my mind! If you’re like me, you might be playing catch-up right now—frantically finalizing goals and professional development plans for the year.

It’s okay. We’ve all been there. And better yet, I’m here to help.

If Salesforce is a key part of your team’s workflow, you should consider attending a Salesforce event in 2019. There are many Salesforce-focused events to choose from throughout the year, and they take place in various cities across the globe. These events are great for learning more about the popular CRM and connecting with fellow Salesforce users.

If you’re not sure where to start with planning your 2019 Salesforce event attendance, you’re in the right place. I’ve compiled a list of Formstack’s top picks for 2019 Salesforce conferences—four hosted by Salesforce and four hosted by community members.

Take a look to see if any of these events are a good fit for your team:

Salesforce-Hosted Events

Salesforce hosts several noteworthy events each year for users, system integrators, developers, admins, educators, and anyone interested in learning more about its powerful CRM technology.

Salesforce World Tour

When: Various Dates
Where: Multiple Locations

The Salesforce World Tour event is held on various dates throughout the year in 12 major cities around the world: Amsterdam, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, and Washington, D.C. These events allow you to connect with customers and other business trailblazers, as well as learn about new Salesforce products and innovations.

Higher Ed Summit

When: April 16–18
Where: San Diego, CA

This year’s 7th Annual Higher Ed Summit is cohosted by Salesforce and University of San Diego. It’s an ed tech conference that unites higher education professionals to celebrate the education community and look toward its future.

TrailheaDX

When: May 29–30
Where: San Francisco, CA

TrailheadX is a must-attend event for Salesforce developers and admins. It features hands-on learning led by Salesforce engineers, product leaders, and the powerful Trailblazer community.

Dreamforce

When: November 19–22
Where: San Francisco, CA

Dreamforce is Salesforce’s flagship event, and it is massive. If you only attend one Salesforce event all year, this should be the one. This annual user conference brings together thousands of thought leaders, industry pioneers, and IT professionals from around the world and effectively shuts down the city of San Francisco for four days.

Community-Hosted Events

The Salesforce community is full of people who love to learn and connect with other Salesforce users. That’s why there are numerous community-led events throughout the year that provide opportunities for connection, inspiration, education, and enjoyment.

Southeast Dreamin’

When: March 21–22
Where: Atlanta, GA

Southeast Dreamin’ is a networking and learning event created by Salesforce users for Salesforce users. It includes hands-on workshops, keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and a Demo Jam.

NorCal Dreamin’

Where: Sacramento, CA

NorCal Dreamin’—previously known as Tahoe Dreamin’—is an event led by Salesforce power users. It includes 35+ learning sessions, product demos, hands-on training, keynote speeches, networking opportunities, and more. Whether you’re an admin, developer, executive, marketer, nonprofit professional, or public sector worker, this event has something for you.

Midwest Dreamin’

When: August 7–9
Where: Chicago, IL

Midwest Dreamin’ is another Salesforce community event with a mission to facilitate learning and collaboration among Salesforce users. The conference is in its seventh year and expects to host more than 700 admins, developers, and users in 2019.

Northeast Dreamin’

Where: Manchester, NH

Northeast Dreamin’ was a brand new Salesforce community user conference in 2018. Like the other Dreamin’ events, it’s meant to bring Salesforce community members together for learning, networking, and fun.
