Slack at Dreamforce 2022: Everything you need to know

The future called. It wants to tell you all about your new digital HQ.

Author: Seth PutnamSeptember 8th, 2022

Dreamforce is in full swing again, and for its 20th anniversary, it’s bigger and better than ever before.

This year, Slack is showing up in a massive way at Salesforce’s signature software conference. There will be demos. There will be celebrations. And, of course, there will be deep knowledge, presented by a lineup of rock-star speakers that include Matthew McConaughey, Bono and Jennifer Hudson, just to name a few. With more than 150,000 attendees in person and online, it’s the world’s top summit for business leaders who are eager to dig into the future of enterprise technology.

Now more than ever, companies have a mandate to deliver better results with fewer resources. In today’s economy, lean productivity is the name of the game. Slack’s new innovations enhance the power of Salesforce’s Customer 360, allowing your teams to collaborate more efficiently and take advantage of endless opportunities to automate their work.

All of which adds up to one powerful result: you can do more with less.

Product announcements galore

From new ways to communicate with your colleagues to opportunities for powerful, no-code automation, we’ll be announcing some big news at this year’s Dreamforce.

These features are still hush-hush even internally, so we can’t say too much, but we can promise you won’t want to miss our keynote on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

What to watch

This year, Dreamforce is jam-packed with Slack content.

Slack keynote: You’ll hear directly from CEO Stewart Butterfield and CPO Tamar Yehoshua about how Slack is driving productivity, efficiency and value across Salesforce’s entire Customer 360. (Psst! There will be a big announcement at this keynote.)

Activities and demos: At the Slack Canopy, we’ll be showing off our latest and greatest features, and you’ll even get a chance to try some of them out for yourself in our hands-on demos. (Did we mention there will be opportunities to earn swag?)

Slack sessions: Choose from 90 different sessions based around product use cases, customer stories and product deep-dives on everything from sales to service to security—all of which will help you accelerate business value by unlocking the power of Slack as your digital HQ. (Pro tip: Find the perfect session for you by using the “Slack” product filter in the Dreamforce catalog.)
