Dreamforce is a crazy, fast-paced week chock full of valuable content, case studies, and inspiration (and some pretty incredible parties *cough* …I mean networking opportunities). Whether it’s your first time attending or you’re a Dreamforce veteran, you’ll want a plan to ensure you make the most of your week.
As a Pardot customer, where do you begin? Agenda Builder goes live this week, and we recommend deciding now what your goals for the week are before sessions fill up. Think about:
- Are you looking for solutions to specific business challenges? (Register for: Circles of Success and Theater Sessions)
- Do you need more hands-on-training in the tool? (Register for: Hands-on-Workshops and Hands-on-Training)
- Are you looking for inspiration for your next campaign? (Register for: Customer-led Theater and Breakout Sessions and Keynotes)
- Do you need expert guidance from Salesforce and Pardot Specialists? (Bookmark: Pardot Customer Station Open Hours and stop by our Genius Bar in the B2B Marketing Station)
No matter your goals, there are sessions to match, so be sure to do your research before you go so you don’t have FOMO when you get there. For Pardot customers, we recommend you don’t miss out on the following:
Pardot Customer Station at The Box SF:
We’re bringing back our Pardot Customer Station, a space exclusively for Pardot users to meet with experts, attend advanced sessions, and get some work done.

Theater Sessions and Hands-On-Workshops:
With 50+ Pardot-focused sessions at Dreamforce this year, it can be hard to narrow down the ones that will help you achieve your goals for the week. Pro-Tip: Filter by level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) to find content that fits your experience level.
A few sessions we recommend by content level:
- Justify your Spend: Tracking Marketing Influence and ROI
- Hands-on Training: Optimize Your Pardot and Salesforce Integration
The Genius Bar inside the B2B Marketing Station:
Come to the B2B Marketing Station at Pied Piper in the Palace Hotel to grab a coffee and connect with other B2B Marketers all week long.

Come eat, drink, and be merry with the Pardot Success Specialists and fellow Pardot Users for a Customer Happy Hour in the B2B Marketing Outpost (Presidio Room, Palace Hotel) Monday from 5 – 6:30 PM.
