As vaccines slowly begin to roll out across the globe, we look forward with excitement to see what 2021 may hold. While most countries are still in the grip of the pandemic, we hope that towards the end of the year we may see some smaller events opening back up to the public - even if it’s with limited capacity.
That said, it is likely that most big events will be held virtually again this year. It is still early days and most events are currently being scheduled. However, below we have created a list of the most important events coming up this year.
We will update times and dates when they are available, as well as include any other events as they come online.
Annual Free event in multiple locations.
Dates for 2021: This year there will be a World Tour streamed from Singapore on the 9th/10th of February.
This annual event takes place across different cities throughout the globe. ‘World Tour’ gives attendees a chance to experience what Dreamforce is like directly from your local city. A free event to attend, World tour is held in cities from New York to London to Sydney. We’re not sure what’s in store for World Tour this year in terms of live, virtual or postponed.
Dates for 2021: 21st-24th of September
This is the big one! Anyone who knows anything about Salesforce is surely aware of Dreamforce. Each year over 170,000 people from around the globe descend on San Francisco for Salesforce’s biggest event of the year. Although last year's event was held virtually, Salesforce is hoping to have a live event again this year, so fingers crossed. I’m sure we’d all love to be heading back over to San Francisco in 2021!
TrailheaDX & TrailheaDX India
Annual paid 2-day events
Dates for 2021: Not yet announced - usually around June and December respectively.
TrailHeaDX - one of the biggest conferences after Dreamforce. A great success in 2019, TrailheaDX went ahead in 2020 virtually. We’re not sure if it will be virtual or live this year, but it typically takes place around June
TrailheaDX India - Although a huge success in 2019, TrailheaDX India did not take place in 2020. We’re unsure if it will go ahead in 2021, however, it usually is set for December time, keep your eyes peeled as the year goes on!
Annual paid 3-day event.
Dates for 2021: Not yet announced - usually around May.
Another very successful event from 2019 that unfortunately did not go ahead in 2020. Connections is usually set for around May, so we’re not sure if Salesforce is planning to go ahead with it this year. Perhaps it may be held later in the year or postponed till 2022.
Dates for 2021: 16th of June - Annual this year.
Previously known as ‘Higher Education Summit’, this event is aimed at schools, colleges, and universities of all sizes to transform and innovate education together. More details here.
