Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff — along with a slew of special guests — officially kicked Dreamforce off with the Opening Keynote. Benioff said this is the biggest Dreamforce yet, with 2,700 sessions, 171,000 in-person attendees, and 10 million+ joining online. Each day of Dreamforce is dedicated to a key value that we are working on and promote within ourselves and express back to our community: Trust, Innovation and AI, Equality and Sustainability, and Personal Empowerment and Mindfulness.
“Allow me to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for all you do — our customers, our partners, our communities, our Trailblazers. Every day you guide us further and show us the way to be connected.” Salesforce Co-CEO Marc @Benioff live at #DF18: https://t.co/KMF7qkzenM pic.twitter.com/8fnVNwmOhF
