What is London’s Calling?
London’s Calling is Europe’s largest community led event for Salesforce professionals. It is a full day event with multiple tracks of content and some of the best keynote speakers that you will not want to miss!
The best part of all, is that this is organised, run and delivered by people like you, people from within the Salesforce community. This is a not-for-profit event that we can only bring to you because of the generosity of our sponsors. The purpose is to bring us all together and to give everyone access to the best content available to help educate and provide value for everyone.
There’s a community?
Salesforce has an active and vibrant community of users that regularly meet to help and support each other. The Salesforce community in Europe is already large and growing all of the time.
With 63 groups, for developers, administrators and business users, spread throughout the regions the community is probably closer than you expect. The aim is to bring people together to development relationships and share knowledge whilst having fun at the same time!
This event is a supersized version of what you can expect from the smaller monthly groups. We’re proud that London’s Calling is one of many ways for the community to come together. To find out more about how you can get involved with a User Group near you visit the Success Community Groups.
