AppExchange Demo Jam

I’m honoured to be invited to present the Salesforce Demo Jam at Dreamforce. App Vendors will be showcasing the best of their app with a real-time demo. Each app vendor will have only THREE minutes to share! After the audience vote for their favourite, only one can win!

Location: San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel, CRM Outfitters Theater South
