Salesforce Admins have become app enthusiasts, using a roster of trusted apps every day. We’re excited to bring that experience to life with Appy, your AppExchange pal at the AppExchange Den at Dreamforce. This means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore and evaluate apps for your business. Be sure to make a game plan before you get to Dreamforce so you make the most of your time. Here are three AppExchange activities (h)appening at Dreamforce we recommend incorporating into your game plan:
1. One-on-One Advice from an AppExchange Expert
At Appy’s Advisors, meet 1-on-1 with an AppExchange expert to get your AppExchange questions answered. It’s located at the AppExchange Den (right next to the Admin Meadow). Solutions Managers like Latrice Barnett are thrilled to address your specific business needs, as well as help you find solutions on the AppExchange and at Dreamforce.
To meet with Appy’s Advisors, visit the AppExchange Den during any of these hours:
- Monday, 11/06: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM PST
- Tuesday, 11/07: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM PST
- Wednesday, 11/08: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM PST
- Thursday, 11/09 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM PST
We asked Appy’s Advisors what makes them excited about Dreamfore and meeting admins.
“I am excited to meet all the Admins and see how we can help them find other partners in our ecosystem that can make their lives better and their companies reach greatness!!!” said Rich Landry, Solution Architect at Salesforce.
2. AppExchange Demo Jam for Admins
“Just watched my first AppExchange Demo Jam. Awesome!” – Nathan Dunn, Solutions Analyst, Morley
You’re invited to an epic, action-packed Demo Jam where six partners will have only three minutes to showcase the best of their admin app with a real-time demo. The winner is chosen by you, the audience. Join us for this fast-paced, highly-anticipated match where Salesforce partners face off. Hosted by Salesforce MVPs Amber Boaz and Phil Weinmeister.
3. App-loving Admin Sessions
App Theater in the Trailhead Zone
Admins already know that this year at Dreamforce, more than any other Dreamforce, we’ll have more content than ever for Salesforce administrators of all experience levels. The AppExchange experience is no different. Our theater will be running throughout Dreamforce with 20-minute sessions covering a myriad of app-friendly topics.
AppExchange for Admins: Apps Every Admin Should Know
AppExchange is an admin’s secret weapon. Join us to hear customers dig into some of the key challenges Admins face and the AppExchange apps, mostly free (and a few paid), that have helped admins power solutions for every challenge and department. Hear from:
- Josie Chiles, Senior Director AppExchange Product Marketing at Salesforce
- Ragin Edwards Senior Manager, Global Sales Operations at PRGX
- Louise Lockie, Head of Group Salesforce Support & Administration at Wilmington plc

Lightning Components: Even More Power for Admins to Command
Led by Matthew Morris, MVP and London Salesforce Admin Group Leader from McKinsey & Company, this session will look at how admins can combine new customization options of LEX with pre-built Lightning Components in order to create a superior experience. You’ll learn about the benefits of defining pages to match the way groups and individuals work, and learn how to enhance pages with additional components from Salesforce and the AppExchange.
4. BONUS: FUN & PRIZES
If you love a challenge (and prizes) then you’ll love the AppExchange Challenge at Dreamforce. While details are still being finalized, it includes completing 3 of 5 eligible stops, such as the AppExchange Den, sessions and much more. Your reward is a brand new Appy plush doll!
