Also just like every Dreamforce, this year too, Salesforce shared its vision for the future and announced key product innovations in the keynote delivered by Chairman & CEO Marc Benioff. He was joined onstage by Parker Harris for a conversation about the future of CRM powered by AI. Later, other Salesforce customers like Schneider Electric, and FitBit were brought onstage to share their Salesforce success stories.

Dreamforce carried the equality theme throughout the week, but it stood out best during the keynote. Tennis legend Billie Jean King, Congress representative John Lewis, and Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard J. Tyson engaged in a powerful conversation about equality amongst different races, genders, and sexual orientation.

Giving back was one other objective of Dreamforce where a big goal to raise $1 million for RED was set. All the attendees came together to donate for a good cause of an AIDS-free generation. It became even more fun when one of the biggest bands on the planet, U2, came alive on the Dreamfest stage at the “Cloud Palace” with a collection of their  greatest hits. They raised awareness about (RED)’s mission to eliminate new cases of HIV by 2020. The concert raised $10 million for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals.
