The Big List of Dreamforce Parties


Posted: September 16, 2012 | Event Marketing

You knew it was coming. Here is my big annual list of Dreamforce parties.

First, there are a bunch of other lists for Dreamforce Parties and thought I would share these too. Here are some I’ve seen:

Note: My list below should be more comprehensive than any of these lists (though these list creators should be smart and grab everything I have listed so we should all end up about equal). I also did not list any parties I couldn’t confirm, nor did I include private parties like Stratera, Sakonent, Accenture, Deloitte, CoreMatrix, and Google (though if you are a customer of one of these companies you may want to reach out to your sales rep for details).

Here is my list:
