Frequently Asked Questions How do I choose which sessions to watch with my customers? So much Dreamforce magic, so little time! Take a look at the agenda for each day and 昀椀nd sessions that align most with your customers’ priorities. During the event, try to make connections between the topics discussed and their business goals! Should I host an in-person watch party or all virtual?

Snap some pictures of your Dreamforce watch party in action and post it on your social channels using #DF23 and tag @partnerforce. We’ll be on the lookout for partner posts and would love to share them! Can I host a watch party for other Salesforce events? Absolutely! We’ve seen some great watch parties hosted during Connections, World Tour Events and TrailblazerDX. We love when our community comes together to enjoy broadcasted content & share in the fun.

Ethics and Legal Guidelines Trust is our #1 value; we hold our employees to a high standard and expect the same from our partner community. As you connect with current and prospective customers, including at Dreamforce watch parties, we want to remind you of a few rules around gifts, entertainment, and hospitality. • Don’t give anything of value to any current or prospective customer of such a size or nature that it would appear to have the purpose of causing them to make a decision that would improperly award business to your company or Salesforce or to give you nonpublic information about a procurement. • Government Customers ° Gifts, Entertainment, and Hospitality - There can be strict rules against giving anything of value to government personnel, including employees of state-owned enterprises like public hospitals, universities, and utilities. Providing even light refreshments for a government o昀케cial can be against these rules in certain situations! If you’re going to provide any gifts, meals, entertainment, or other hospitality to any prospective or current Salesforce customers, it’s your responsibility to understand whether any recipient is government personnel, and to stay in compliance with all applicable anti-corruption rules. ° Discussions - Certain topics are o昀昀-limits for discussion with government customers and prospects, such as open procurements, employment opportunities with a customer that has an open RFP, and con昀椀dential information. Further, government customers should not be asked to endorse Salesforce. You can review our policies regarding gifts and entertainment in Salesforce's Global Supplier Code of Conduct. If you have good faith concerns about conduct related to Salesforce business, we expect that you will notify us via EthicsPoint (anonymous reporting available in many countries) or via email to [email protected]. This applies to suspected misconduct within your organization, Salesforce, or any other third party. Copyright © 2023 Salesforce.com, inc. All rights reserved. For Partner’s internal use only. 13
