Urgent Opp! - Salesforce/Lucas College of Business Dreamforce Day Event! (9/27 in SF)

Everyone around here knows (or should know) that
  1. Salesforce is literally a huge "force" in the tech industry, 
  2. they are HQ'd in SF where they've just put up the tallest building on the West Coast of North America, and 
  3. the Lucas College of Business has a special relationship with them. (Last year, they sponsored 100 LCoB students to visit Dreamforce, their annual party/conference for their users.)
This year we're going back to Dreamforce but we're kicking it up a notch. Read on.

Dreamforce is a ridiculously big deal. Salesforce takes over the city of San Francisco–all the available meeting space in Moscone, the Hyatt, the Hilton, the Marriott, the Westfield theaters, everything, everywhere to bring in 170,000 users for a week of conferencing by day, parties, raves and concerts by night. They pay the city to shut down a block of Howard street and lay in astroturf, palm trees, bandstages, bean bag chairs...the works. It's insane.

It's also a great place for students to see what is going on in the business world with the latest technologies and biggest players. You can get a free pass that lets you attend keynote addresses by big-name execs and wander the expo with hundreds of companies showing off their technology products, etc.

And this year, you can experience it with your SJSU friends and classmates because we're hosting an LCoB Group Story on SnapChat that day with prizes for best posts, eg. selfies with Salesforce execs, wandering characters, etc. And for the first 50 students that stop by to sign up for the Group Story, we're also providing a free Dreamforce Survival Kit (water, snacks, coffee card, hand-sani, etc) to help you power thru the day and get the most of the time you're there!

Follow these instructions EXACTLY to participate:
  1. Go get your free Dreamforce Expo pass at the link below. They will sell out any day now so it it ASAP!
  1. Bring your Dreamforce Expo pass confirmation to the SISTech office (BT 250), STARTING ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, during business hours (9am-5pm, closed 12-1pm for lunch) to sign up for the Snapchat Group Story. (FIRST 50 ONLY get the Dreamforce Survival Kit!)
  2. Get yourself + ID for picking up badge + your survival kit up to San Francisco on Thursday, Sept 27, and experience Dreamforce. NO PARKING-NO DRIVING. TAKE TRANSIT. (see below)
  3. Optional: 10-min orientation with me (Professor Hill) starts at 8:30am sharp in front of St Patrick's Church (756 Mission St).
  4. Snap & post all the crazy & interesting stuff you learn/see to our Group Story. (Prizes announced on Friday, the 28th.)
Note: The free Dreamforce registrations will sell out very soon so get registered NOW!

Getting there: You really want to take BART and get off at the Montgomery or Powell Stations. It's a short walk to St Patrick's/Moscone from either. To get to BART, either take the 181 Express Bus from Diridon Station to Fremont BART, or take Caltrain to the Millbrae station and change to BART. Google it!

Yes you have to get up early in the morning but that's what you do to get a world-class, professional development experience. It's worth it! 

See you there.
