Saleforce's massive DreamForce 2013 kicks off tomorrow at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and there will be many exhibitors and attendees from the Philadelphia area. Here is one preview of the event (and events surrounding it) via Diginomica. Some estimates are for registration of up to 120,000 people.

Dell Boomi, Aria Systems (R&D in Bromall), Fiberlink Communications (just acquired last week by IBM), Hoopla (development in West Chester), QlikTech, Allentown-basd Trifecta Technologies (which has become a large Salesforce development shop), Conshohocken-based TargetX, and Ami Assayag's CRM Science will be among those exhibiting, presenting or attending.

The meetup group PhillyForce held a session the week before last for presenters to preview their Dreamforce presentations. Trial runs include two from CRM Science and one from PointRoll.

Let me know if any other Philly-companies or people have Dreamforce-related news to add.
