It’s go time for Dreamforce 2014. With Salesforce’s annual conference a mere week away, we’re busy gearing up for what’s sure to be an amazing week of Yeti sightings, party bus commuting, and spreading the news about an all new Yesware.
Will we see you at Moscone? Here’s everything we have planned to make this year’s Dreamforce the best one yet:
The Big Green Guy Is On The Loose: Help Us Find The Yesware Yeti
What: #IFoundYeti for $1000 Reward
When: Now until Thursday, October 16
Where: Dreamforce, Moscone, San Francisco — who knows?!
As you know, most Yetis have a serious case of wanderlust (no wonder scientists can’t find them). The Yesware Yeti is no exception. In fact, he set off by himself just last week to go visit Yesware’s new San Francisco office. But now we’re starting to get worried: Our favorite globe-trotting mascot has gone off the grid and we can’t find him anywhere!
Sources say Yeti was last seen hitchhiking to Moscone. Your mission is to track him down. If you find the Yeti around Dreamforce, tweet out a photo and be sure to mention #IFoundYeti #df14 @yesware. That tweet will enter you in a contest to win a $1000 cash reward. The winner will be selected at random and announced on October 16, via @yesware. Learn more about the great #IFoundYeti hunt.

Party Hop with the Yesware Party Express Bus
What: The Yesware Party Express Bus
When: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 11:30 pm (10:30 on Wednesday)
Where: See routes below for bus stop locations.
Dreamforce after-hours parties are as legendary as they are fun. But you know what’s not fun? Trying to navigate from one party to the next in an unfamiliar city, when you’ve been walking around Moscone in uncomfortable shoes all day (been there). Or missing out on said fun because you’re stuck in gridlocked traffic (done that).
Good news, party hoppers: This year you can hop on the Yesware Party Express Bus and keep the fun going while we get you to your next party destination. Rides are FREE for all Dreamforce attendees (be sure to wear your badge) and we’ll have free booze, food, and music on the bus to help you kick back and relax after a long day of sessions. Just look for the big green bus.
