There’s no denying just how important Salesforce Connections is for marketers everywhere, which is why we’re excited to announce that Localytics will be sponsoring this year’s conference.

Connections will take place at McCormick Place Conference Center, in Chicago, on June 12th -14th.

By briefly looking at the Connections agenda, you’ll see that it’s a jam packed three-day conference. With over 500 sessions, cocktail receptions and keynotes, Connections has a lot to offer attendees and it’s important to prepare. That’s why we came up with 6 top tips for marketers attending Salesforce Connections, 2018.

1. Prepare to Grow Your Professional Network

Salesforce defines a trailblazer as a pioneer or innovator who wants to build a better world; these are the individuals who are motivated to lead and help others. Attending Salesforce Connections,is a great opportunity to connect with like minded individuals and grow your professional network. Attending an event with fellow trailblazers is not only exciting, but also a great way to represent your company and/or your relationship with Salesforce.

2. Don’t Forget the Comfortable Shoes

If there is one thing on this list that we urge you to remember, it’s this one. You are going to spend a lot of time engaging with trailblazers, which means plenty of standing and walking. Not only that, but you may choose to take some time outside the conference to explore all that Chicago has to offer. You absolutely don’t want blisters on the back of your heels while you’re trying to enjoy the city!

3. Build Your Own Connections Agenda

As we mentioned in the introduction, over 500 sessions will take place during the three day conference. If you don’t plan your time carefully, you might miss out on sessions that could benefit your personal and professional development. Plus, it never hurts to schedule in some relaxation time before and after the conference.

4. Do Your Research

If you didn’t try deep dish pizza at least once, did you really go to Chicago? Alright, maybe you aren’t a big pizza person or don’t have much time to hunt out the best pizzeria. This is where any time spent researching restaurants or asking your network for advice will pay off. Chicago is a city known for its excellent cuisine ranging from Chicago style hot dogs, beef sandwiches, and of course, pizza.

5. Sing Your Heart Out

On Wednesday, June 13th The Killers will be performing live at the Connections after-party following the second day of the conference. The Killers have been performing worldwide since 2001 and have released five chart-topping studio albums.

Whether you’re a die-hard Killers fan or have only heard the indie classic Mr. Brightside, which has become an anthem for a generation, you absolutely do not want to miss this concert. Is there a better way to unwind after two days of networking than with a killer performance?
