The aim of London’s Calling is to bring Salesforce users, administrators & developers together for a jam-packed, one-day event to focus on learning from the community by the community. London’s Calling aims to bring different groups together for knowledge sharing and collaboration. London’s Calling is a non-profit organization and is entirely focused on knowledge sharing and Salesforce Community involvement.
We will have over 30 sessions across 6 tracks by Salesforce experts from around the EU & US and this year we will be including a workshop track.
Within 2 days of the release of tickets for the London’s Calling Event all Super Early bird tickets were sold out.
How is this event different from a Salesforce World Tour event?
London’s Calling is the first event of its kind in Europe and differs from Salesforce World Tour as it’s tailored to users, developers and administrators of all levels as opposed to prospective customers, like World Tour. All sessions are geared to audiences that are already developing, using or managing the Salesforce platform. The educational sessions selected to reflect this direction, so there is less about getting started with Salesforce and more about extending and scaling Salesforce.
We have sold out for the past two years and we’re estimating that we will sell out our 400 attendees again.
