We are Coming to Midwest Dreamin 16

Posted by Aditya Pavan Vempati

Three weeks to go for Midwest Dreamin’ 2016 – one of the biggest Salesforce community driven events that we have been waiting for! The event is being held at Navy Pier on the Chicago shoreline of Lake Michigan, a venue that has been hosting the conference for the past years. What started out by Eric Dreshfield as a way of bringing a bit of Dreamforce to the Midwest has now become an annual Super User Group event.
What’s New this Year?

  • Shuttle service between the Intercontinental Hotel, who are the exclusive hotel partners for the events and Navy Pier.
  •  Third keynote address in store for attendees. This year, there are three amazing speakers for the event keynotes.
    • Erica Kuhl, Vice President of Community, Salesforce who will be speaking on Digital and Human Harmony
    • Vala Afshar, Chief Digital Evangelist, Salesforce on Business And Personal Branding In The Digital Era
    • Peter Coffee, Vice President for Strategic Research, Salesforce on Game Of Phones: Becoming The Architects Of Connection
  •  Coat and luggage accommodation has been arranged at the conference venue!
  •  Free Wi-Fi throughout the entire venue which means you get to share live reports from the conference to the unlucky one who missed being there.
  • The conference will showcase a lot of innovative community provided content this time
  • Live performance by Apex and the Limits, a band formed by current Salesforce MVPs ready to add to the fun element.
  • Over 30 amazing breakout sessions for which the selection was done ‘blindly’ without knowing any details other than the title and the description.
