Dreamforce 2023 may be more than halfway through, but the anticipation is only rising! Here are some of the highlights from Day 2: 

Breaking out of the norm: OwnBackup breakout sessions

Data resiliency doesn’t have to be complex, even if you’re working across complex orgs. In Drop the Drama: Backup and Recovery for the Enterprise breakout sessions, attendees learned about real-world strategies that keep data resilience–and company confidence– high.  OwnBackup SVP Head of Product Jason Choy, Product Marketing Director Vijay Ramakrishnan, and SVP of Customer Support and Implementation Gadi Vered chatted with Hertz Senior Salesforce Admin Charlotte Perrill and provided a sneak preview of the new innovations that require the most demanding recovery requirements. 

Pre-Dreamfest happy hour 

Dreamfest always promises to be a night of fun. Turns out, the fun began even before musicians hit the stage. OwnBackup and AWS hosted a Dreamfest pre-happy hour at Independence Hall. With drinks, appetizers, and Hamilton-inspired performers, it was the perfect warm-up for the memorable night!

London Watch Party

Think U.S.’s west coast is the only area buzzing with Dreamforce? Think again! OwnBackup, Validity, and Provar brought the Trailblazer energy across the pond for the 2023 Dreamforce London watch party. Held at M Restaurant, guests enjoyed a welcome speech from sponsoring partners, the Dreamforce Keynote Stream, and refreshing drinks, bites, and networking opportunities. What a great way to stay in on the Salesforce action–without hopping a plane or finding your passport!

Leading the Way: Women Who Are Changing the World dinner 

Salesforce refers to their community as Trailblazers, so what better place to honor three inspirational women who are trailblazers in their respective fields? At Leading the Way: Women Who Are Changing the World, OwnBackup welcomed guests to a panel and intimate three-course dining experience at The Wine Cellar at The Battery. Moderated by OwnBackup Chief Marketing Officer Courtnee LeClaire, the panel conversation featured aspirational presences across different industries, including Shannah Withrow-Maser, Aerospace Engineer at the NASA Ames Research Center, Dr. Allison Schrager, economist, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and Bloomberg columnist, and Heidi Kuhn, Founder and CEO at Mines to Vines.

AI, data, and CRM aren’t the only things taking center stage at Dreamforce 2023–so are Grammy-winning performers. At Dreamfest 2023, Dreamforce’s annual premiere musical event, guests rocked out to Foo Fighters, proving that these Trailblazers know how to have a good time.  

With one more day to go, we’re excited to experience what’s next at Dreamforce 2023. Visit us at Booth 1609 at the Moscone Center, and Booth 10 at the Trailblazer Forest. Until Day 3!
