CenCal Dreamin’ 2023 is just around the corner!

CenCal Dreamin’ (In Person) | Fresno | May 11, 2023
CenCal Dreamin’ is an opportunity for every type of Salesforce aficionado to congregate and celebrate all of the goodness that comes with our Central California Salesforce community. After two years of virtual events, this year’s CenCal Dreamin’ conference will take place in person on May 11 with a loaded docket of speakers and sessions for every kind of Salesforce user. CenCal Dreamin’ offers three track options–one for the Executive or Manager, another for Admins and Developers, plus a third Specialty track focused on product-specific elements. Additionally, attendees will get to enjoy the amenities of two Bitwise Fresno locations, with a keynote delivery at the John Dodson Auditorium at Bitwise South Stadium building and a host of informational break-out sessions at Bitwise|41.

Who can you expect to hear from at Cen Cal Dreamin’? Gillian Bruce, a Principal Technical Evangelist with 13 years of experience working at Salesforce, will deliver the keynote session, “Creating a Values-driven Career,” inspiring attendees to “discover their values, develop their skills, and amplify their impact.” Another can’t-miss event? “The Intersection of Customer Connection and Community: A Fireside Chat”, featuring Irma Olguin Jr., the Co-CEO of Bitwise Industries, a key sponsor of the event. Irma will be joined by Charlie Isaacs, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Customer Connection at Salesforce. 

The power of CenCal Dreamin’? Something for everyone. From breakout sessions for Salesforce executives and managers from Ian Gotts, a 21-year Salesforce employee with multiple Dreamforce sessions under his belt, to administrator and developer-focused sessions from Kelly Ryan and Evan Ponter, two CRM heavyweights with a combined 30+ Salesforce certifications. Not to mention this year’s specialty track–featuring sessions on using the Salesforce Lightning Email Builder and methodology and documentation.

Tahoe Dreamin’ 2023 (In Person) | Lake Tahoe | July 20-21, 2023

Okay, so this one’s kind of a wombo combo–Tahoe Dreamin’ takes place on the California and Nevada state line, but is still the place where NorCal Salesforce community members congregate for its fifth annual conference. Networking and learning opportunities abound with one-and-a-half days of sessions, keynotes, and a whole bunch of other Salesforce awesomeness that will inevitably spark great ideas to take home for your very own Salesforce org. What makes Tahoe Dreamin’ special? A bonus day filled with hands-on networking activities that range from hiking, to boat rides, to a fun-filled beach day where family and friends are welcome to join! Talking with other community members during these activities has led to past attendees figuring out complex Salesforce needs while engaging with fellow Salesforce experts.

Dreamforce 2023 (Hybrid) | San Francisco | September 12-14, 2023
In case TrailblazerDX is too close around the corner, have no fear! Salesforce’s premiere conference, Dreamforce is coming September 12-14, and there’s ample time to plan. Click here to get in the loop for early access registration and be the first to know which incredible speakers, celebrities, and performers will be in attendance at the Salesforce community’s biggest event of the year. Much like TrailblazerDX, Dreamforce seeks to bring together the Salesforce community on a large scale, with admins traveling worldwide to watch and deliver keynotes regarding the latest in the Salesforce ecosystem. Last year’s Dreamforce featured keynotes from Co-CEO’s Marc Benioff and Bret Taylor, along with appearances from Bono (yes, that Bono), and performances headlined at Oracle Park by Red Hot Chili Peppers and DJ Mary Mac. This year’s conference celebrates 20 years of Dreamforce, which means the event is bound to be a success. Not able to make it to San Francisco this time around? No worries–the event is being streamed live on Salesforce+.

Countless Events, Countless Chances to Connect

Phew! If that sounded like a mouthful, those were only some of the thousands of events put on internationally each year by the Salesforce trailblazer community. From in-person events to online keynotes, there are countless opportunities to meet your Salesforce match and work together on using the CRM to find a solution for any and all problems within an org, with the added bonus of a rock concert, celebrity appearance, or beach day–just for kicks.
