By Larry Chiang Return On Investment is a topic your company analyzes when it comes to traveling to swanky but pricey SF. Dreamforce is Nov 18 – 21, so let’s get our ROI (Tip #3 you do before we step foot at Moscone) Energy and Inspiration at Dreamforce Demos and decks. Get peoples Slideshare by going to the speakers Slideshare account before Dreamforce. Continue to pre network them by emailing them (if you need an email address, email me. My Rolodex is pretty extensive) Network with VIPs at breakfasts. VIPs don’t go out late at night. They simply don’t. Ambush meet them at breakfast. My five top breakfast spots – La Boulangerie (it’s by beard papa’s) – Mariott Grand Marquis lobby – Palace Hotel (it’s epic) – Westin Hotel on Market. I’m forced to promote it but that doesn’t make it less true. – Westin St Francis. Bring ear plugs and a notepad. It literally is a rock concert. Get your ROI by asking yourself ROI based questions – How early can I start wearing my badge? (they mail mine so I don it asap) – how can I host a minimum viable party so I’ll meet the people I need to attract?!
