This is the first in a series of brief posts to highlight the advantages Chatter is bringing to the Dreamforce 10 conference. In summer 2010, Salesforce.com opened up an attendee portal for their Dreamforce event to connect customers to each other as well as Salesforce employees and partners.
Chatter-vantage #1 – No Need to Rush the Stage
When you attend a session, you’ll often find yourself wanting to ask additional questions of the speaker or want to exchange contact information with them so you can connect after the conference. What typically happens is that you stand in line to talk to that person, you’re watching the clock to ensure you get to the next session on time, and then when you finally get to them, they’ve run out of business cards. You may never connect with them again.
With Chatter in the Dreamforce attendee portal, you can connect to speakers before, during, and after the conference. Ask questions ahead of time to help speakers tailor their content to what the audience wants. Introduce yourself to them ahead of time or even send them a thank you after the session.
No matter what, you’ve got an advantage no other conference you’ve ever attended has had. Chatter makes the conference experience better and more meaningful because you can readily connect with speakers and get to your next session without worry.
