DreamOlé 2018 Preview: The Sun Behind the Cloud Returns!

By the time you read this post, London’s Calling will be over for another year, as today sees the third instalment of Europe’s largest community-led Salesforce event take place in, erm, well, London. I couldn’t make it to London’s Calling this year (it’s half term; I’m a parent – you know how it is), but I want to use this week’s blog to continue along the same theme: European Salesforce community events.

Because… DreamOlé is coming back for 2018!

If London’s Calling can lay claim to being the largest community-led Salesforce event in Europe, then DreamOlé certainly has a case for being the most fun, in my opinion. (But then I am seriously biased. I’d jump at any chance to spend time in Spain – my food heaven – even if it’s for reasons vaguely classified as ‘work’.)

So, what do you need to know about DreamOlé and its 2018 return? Well, in the spirit of the Spanish tapeo, let’s keep this bite-sized and fast-paced with some quick tips for you to gulp down in one bite (cerveza optional).

Missed last year? You missed out!

The inaugural DreamOlé in 2017 took place in Madrid. Here’s a lightning-fast summary of what you missed if you couldn’t attend this sell-out event. And the best news is that we can expect more of the same fun in 2018!

Back to Madrid again, then? Nope!

One thing I really like about the way the DreamOlé organisers approach their event, is that they want it to be of benefit for the whole of Spain. One method they’re using to achieve this is to move the event around the country each year. So while last year was in Madrid, this year’s event moves to Barcelona – which just happens to be my favourite city on earth.

Register now to save the date and save a load of cash!

The date of this year’s event is 27th April 2018 – a wonderful time of year to visit a wonderful city. And registration is now open, so secure your place now for the frankly unbelievable Early Bird price of just €20! For context, that’s about £18 or $25 – and is around £70 less than the cheapest ticket available for London’s Calling 2018. So you’ll have plenty of cash in reserve for some tapas and cava!

The agenda will be even better than 2017…

In assembling the line-up and agenda for this year’s incarnation, the organisers made a big deal of diversifying the content and mixing up the format of sessions. Just like last year you can expect to hear from awesome admins, expert developers, technical architects, and Salesforce evangelists in English as well as Spanish, but this year the sessions may well have a few surprises up their sleeves in terms of format and delivery. Regardless of the format, you can expect to leave Barcelona more knowledgeable than ever on topics ranging from AI to compliance, and from integrations to best practices.

…but it’s not all good news: I’ll be there too!

I bet by now you’re already reaching for the credit card and planning your trip. Not so fast! It’s only right I let you know that I’ll be there presenting too. If that doesn’t put you off too much, book your place now! And if you can make it, then here’s what my colleague, Ben Duffy, and I will be presenting. No slides, all demo (and perhaps some silly wigs)…

“Better Living Through Salesforce: Health Cloud + Field Service Lightning = Home Healthcare”

Bored of using Sales Cloud to shift units and Service Cloud to close cases? Learn how two of Salesforce’s lesser known products – Health Cloud and Field Service Lightning – can be combined to achieve a much more worthwhile objective, helping improve the lives of patients. Join us as we ‘inject’ some fun into a live demo and show you how the patient-centric power of Health Cloud can be combined with the latest capabilities of Field Service Lightning to deliver a home healthcare solution which gives patients the care they need, in the place they most want to be.

Roll on April! I can’t wait for this event, and I’d love to see as many of you there as possible. I promise you’ll have a whole lot of fun in the Spanish Catalan sun!
