Salesforce is Giving Away 24 Free Passes to Dreamforce


With keynote speakers such as Richard Branson, Colin Powell, Bill Clinton and music acts such as of the Black Eye Peas, Green Day, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Salesforce’s Dreamforce is by far the top conference that any tech company throws for its customers. And Salesforce knows it.

The cloud-based computing giant announced on its blog today that it’s giving away 24 free passes to businesses that enter its Sales Surfboard Awards by July 7th. There are 24 different categories, so businesses have plenty of opportunities to win.

Last year at Dreamforce, we launched the Sales Surfboard Award program, which recognizes customers for their eye-popping stories, innovations, and success metrics in Sales Cloud, or to transform the way they sell.

Just a few of last year’s winners: T-Mobile (Prospecting Like a Pro winner), ADP (The Road Warriors winner), and The Advisory Board Co (Breaking the Mold winner). The quality of entries was astounding (we had over 120 nominations!) and we had a blast honoring 18 winners at our own version of the Oscars. See the complete list of winners here.

Whether you’re part of a big business or small business (and everything in between), Salesforce is looking for stories on how their apps have transformed your business, overhauled operations, motivated employees, or driven sales to the next level.

Your chances of winning are surprisingly high. Last year, 18 winners were chosen out of 120 nominations. That’s a 15% chance of winning a free ticket, so you might as well try your hand! Enter to win a free Dreamforce 2014 pass here.
