When your company plans to attend a conference you always roadmap how you will make the most of the out of office time, right? Wrong. Most of us end up walking the conference floor with no game plan!
The Salesforce.com Toronto Customer Company Tour is right around the corner, and Diabsolut has some tips for you to make the most of the event!
Define your goals
Essentially, ask yourself: “Why am I attending?” “What will my takeaway be?” the Salesforce.com Customer Company Tour is Canada’s largest Salesforce.com event of the year, so you are certainly attending for a reason.
Whether you are attending to have your technical questions answered, learn more about a new product like Social.com or even to look for a preferred Salesforce integration or optimization partner to work with, make sure you identify those goals beforehand.
Do your homework!
With 3000+ expected participants, the conference floor is going to get crowded! We suggest taking a little time beforehand to scope out key sponsors and partners (like Diabsolut!) that you want to meet with and have your CRM, implementation or best practice questions answered.
Set up meetings before the conference
Now that you’ve defined your wish-list of takeaways and scoped out the sponsors, a great way to be proactive is to reach out and book some meetings beforehand.
Sponsors are there to meet with you, so actively setting up a meeting or booking their time to review a particular demo/functionality will be beneficial. With every attendee fighting to get their own questions answered, you will be happy you did!
Monitor Social Media
Social Media is a great way to stay completely connected throughout the expo! Pull out your smart phone and take note of the conference hash tag (#salesforceLIVE). Tweeting live from the event and leveraging the conference hash tag puts you right in the middle of the conversation between keynote speakers, sponsors & partners and Salesforce enthusiasts! Look out for contests too, like @Diabsolut’s iPad giveaway by tweeting a picture of our #OrangePolos!
