Are you ready for the cloud event of the year?  Salesforce is expecting an attendance of more than 120,000 for their annual conference Dreamforce, hosted in San Francisco’s Moscone Center from November 18-21.  That’s an increase of 40,000 from last year!  The conference will be swarming with leading-edge cloud adopters and enthusiastic newbies eager to learn how to transform their business.

Salesforce has an exceptional line-up of keynote speakers including Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook COO and author of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead), Marissa Mayer (President & CEO of Yahoo!), Deepak Chopra, MD, and Marc Benioff,’s Chairman & CEO.  If that’s not enough…the Grammy Award winning band Green Day will perform at AT&T Park on Tuesday night.

To support the enormous turn-out, Dreamforce will dazzle conference-goers with an unprecedented 1,250 breakout sessions showcasing the industry’s premier cloud experts.

And NTT will be there as a Titanium sponsor – one of only 5.  If you’re attending, make sure to register for some of the most popular sessions hosted by NTT’s brightest cloud SME’s.
