About Us

In 2015 eight members in the Southeast region of the United States recognized the lack of professional development opportunities for Salesforce professionals. Taking a risk, they founded Southeast Dreamin to be that answer to the large-scale learning and networking to support their professional advancement. Since it's inception, Southeast Dreamin has invited 1200+ national & international Salesforce professionals to share industry knowledge and best practices in Atlanta, GA.

As a community-led conference, 100% of the conference's development is organized by volunteers. Over the course of 11 months, the volunteer team dedicates over 1,440 hours to the annual 2 day conference featuring 30 sessions and 10 hands-on trainings. Funding for the conference is only possible with various sponsors comprised of Salesforce Consulting and ISV partners. The continued support of the sponsors is what makes it possible to offer afforable professional development opportunities to the community.
