Kia ora e te whānau Ohana,

Tickets are now available for Kiwi Dreaming 2024! Grab your tickets, and tell your friends to get theirs, at

Of course, there's no way we will be able to do another event without the amazing help from our sponsors, so we are asking you now, if you're a potential sponsor then please get in touch with us at, and let us know any thoughts you have about sponsoring.

What's a "Dreaming" event?

Great question! A Dreaming event is a chance to connect with your Salesforce Ohana, learn things that you might not have known, meet people you haven't met, and share your stories with the community! They are run independently from Salesforce themselves, so rely on sponsorship and a small entrance fee.

Check out a few of the links below to find out more:

Salesforce community events past and future
Our friends at Downunder Dreaming held events back in 2019 in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Also London's Calling is an amazing community-led event and they have a great video of what Dreaming events are all about.
Finally, here's a good write-up on what Dreaming events are all about also.

Sponsorship packages are now available via the link below. Please get in touch if you are interested in sponsoring, or have any questions. It goes without saying that sponsors provide the backbone of any community event, and we look forward to working through the details with sponsors from Aotearoa and hopefully further afield as well!

If you haven't already, then please join our mailing list to keep up to date with our plans. Join details are below.

Ngā mihi,
The Kiwi Dreaming crew.
