The B2B Marketing Party of the Year: The Marketing Cloud Party at Dreamforce 2009

By:

Are you a B2B Marketer planning to be in the San Francisco Bay area next week?  If so, on Thursday night you will want to attend what is going to go to be remembered as the Marketing Party of 2009!  Why?  Three Reasons:

  1. Awesome Location! I don’t think it gets much cooler than the St. Regis in San Francisco. We’ll be out on the beautiful terrace, but don’t worry- it will be tented to keep everyone warm.  With music and lots of libations, you are sure to have a great time.  Oh, and it’s only one block from the Moscone Center- so you can head right over after the Thursday’s afternoon Keynote from Colin Powell.
  2. Awesome Hosts!  This party is brought to you by some of the most kick-butt marketing companies around.  It’s hard to be a B2B company not using at least one of the sponsors of The Marketing Cloud™ party.  They include: Jigsaw, Hoovers, Pivotlink, On24, Demandbase, and Marketo.  And all will be available to answer any questions you have about The Marketing Cloud and marketing with salesforce.com without pushing any heavy sales pitches.  This party is about having fun! 
  3. Awesome People!  Okay, I’ve saved the best one for last.  Where else can you go to meet hundreds of B2B Marketers from around the world?  We want everyone to leave with lots of contacts- helping make Dreamforce a networking success. 

What do you have to do to attend?  It’s simple.  Just register at The Marketing Cloud website.  Well over 300 already have- make sure you do too!  Oh, and here is a little secret- you don't have to be a Dreamforce registrant to attend.  Just a marketer.
