Attention APAC! Have you already registered for the Salesforce Advantage Tour? Need some convincing? Our Manager of APAC Operations, Jarrod Hunt (@MrJarrodHunt), highlights just what the Tour has to offer. Be sure to sign up today and come visit Jarrod and the rest of the APAC Conganeers in the Cloud Expo at the Advantage Tour. (Please note: the handsome gent on the left in the photo below will sadly not be in attendance)
If you’re a Salesforce customer or prospect, you are probably aware that Dreamforce, the world’s largest yearly software conference, recently took place in San Francisco, with another record attendance of over 150,000 delegates.
If you’re an APAC customer or prospect, and were lucky enough to attend, then you would have had an awesome week and no doubt have some stories to tell from what has been dubbed “the Superbowl of software conferences.” If you missed Dreamforce, however, the good news is that you’ve got a chance to catch up on what you missed at the Salesforce Advantage Tour.
The tour comprises of 5 events:
- Sydney – Oct 22
- Singapore – Nov 3
- Melbourne – Nov 10
- Auckland – Nov 13
- Mumbai – Nov 17
I would encourage everyone to get along and attend an event if the tour is swinging by your local area. Not convinced? Let me tell you why you should attend.
You’ll be getting all of the best bits of Dreamforce, from the major announcements, to the latest and greatest cloud technology Salesforce has to offer, in a more intimate, local environment. Dreamforce is fantastic, but it’s a 3 day event, San Fran is bursting at the seams, and it’s impossible to stay on top of everything that’s going on. With just under 2,000 sessions/keynotes in 3 days, you really have pick and choose what you see and do. The Advantage events are one day (half day for all events except for Sydney, which is a full day), the agenda is streamlined, and you’ll be able to see and do everything you want, all in one place.
The event is tailored to suit your requirements. You’ve got the option of sitting in on short presentations and demonstrations in the customer theatre, speaking directly with Salesforce employees about anything and everything at the Collaboration Corners, or rolling your sleeves up and getting amongst it at one of the Hands on Workshops.
Not only that, the theatre, Collaboration Corners and Hands On Workshops are role specific, tailored to one of the following 6 streams:
- Sales & Business Leaders
- Customer Experience Professionals
- Awesome Admins
- Developers and IT Professionals
- Small and Medium Business Leaders
- Financial Services, Retail and Government Professionals
The real highlight though, in my very biased opinion, is the Cloud Expo. Here, you can meet and chat with vendors who all have amazing add-on services and/or products, which can and will supercharge your Salesforce instance. This is also where you’ll find me and a few of my colleagues. Conga is a Platinum Sponsor of the whole tour, so you should come on over and have a chat! We’re passionate about what we do and we love to talk document generation so if you’re an existing Conga customer or not, pop by and say hello.
Last but not least, the events are FREE!!! Your registration will get you access to all of the above, PLUS the networking happy hour. Who doesn’t enjoy a pinot at the end of an action packed day, where you can eat, drink and network with other like-minded Salesforce prospects, customers, employees, and partners.
I look forward to seeing you there!
