It may seem far from now, but Dreamforce 2015 will be here sooner than you think. With the largest high tech conference in the world set to take place this September, you can expect three things…
Terrific keynote presentations, sessions with valuable content, and tons, and tons of fun.
As of now, however, Salesforce has yet to release detailed information regarding whose going to speak or perform at Dreamforce 2015. With less than 120 days till the conference of the year, I’m sure we’re all wondering what to expect from Salesforce.
Luckily, we’ve done some heavy research, consulted the TMZ gossip team, and have gotten the inside scoop on what’s being planned. We can’t give away too much information, but we want to fill you in as much as we can. Here’s the wild gossip, rumors and Dreamforce 2015 speculation we came away with. (Note: none of these are confirmed by any representative at Salesforce, or anyone at all.) Enjoy!
1. Kanye West will perform at the Dreamforce Gala
2. Kim Kardashian will have a keynote presentation
We’re not quite certain what exactly Kim will be talking to us about, but the speculation is that it will likely revolve around the topics of machine learning and big data, and how both will play significant roles in business – that is one presentation you definitely wouldn’t want to miss. Plus she will highlight the new releases of her highly successful app, unfortunately not available on the AppExchange…yet.
3. Stephen Curry will go head to head in a 3-point shooting contest with Salesforce MVPs
4. Salesforce mascot SaaSy will get a makeover
5. Marc Benioff will host a contest asking kids to help design the shoes he’ll wear during the conference
Marc Benioff’s shoes during Dreamforce has always been a topic for conversation. Whether it may be the loud colors he wears, the shiny material on the shoes that catch our eye, Mr. Benioff knows how to arrive in style and make a bold fashion statement. Word is this year, he is extending the opportunity for 5th graders to help design the pair of shoes that he’s going to wear during Dreamforce 2015. I’m excited to see what they come up with!
6. Peter Coffee and Keith Block will engage in an epic arm wrestling match
Although this rumor might seem over the top (pun most definitely intended), this is the most likely of our rumors to actually occur. The match will supposedly take place at midnight at the View Lounge atop the Marriot Marquis. Adding to the suspense, sources say the arm wrestling will be reffed by Charlie Isaacs, wearing a full luchador outfit, mask and all. It’s a highly anticipated bout. Ticket values are expected to top Pacquiao Mayweather prices.
7. Fake Bono will be replaced by Real Bono
Yep, you read that right! This year the Bono you see trolling around the Dreamforce campus with rose color sunglasses and leather jacket will in fact be the real Bono. That’s not even a rumor, that’s the truth. Get your selfie sticks ready! You won’t want to miss your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to soak up his celebritosity and show off your awesomeness to all your peers in your Facebook/Chatter/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat feeds.
8. Adam Sandler will make a Dreamforce Movie
Well that’s all we’ve gathered so far. When more information becomes available, you’ll be the first to know. Until then, spread these rumors far and wide, because who knows, they just might happen.
