AppExchange at Connections: An #Appy Recap

Connections 2019, the digital marketing, commerce, and service event of the year, has come and gone. 15,000+ attendees took in three days of industry insights, thought leadership, inspiring speakers, 450+ breakout sessions and tons of networking with fellow Trailblazers. Since there’s was so much to do and see, we wanted to give a quick recap to all things AppExchange at Connections.


Attendees learned how to find and build solutions


There was never a dull moment at the AppExchange booth in the Connections Campground! Customers, partners, and employees lined up to ask questions and to discover the many solutions and services on AppExchange, plus how they could build, market, and sell on the #1 enterprise cloud marketplace.



Leaders in the digital space shared insights and ideas


One of the best things about this event is the unbelievable amount of breakout sessions. So. Much. Knowledge. We hope you took away lots of actionable ideas and information, and that you checked out our session, AppExchange: The Faster, Smarter Way to Extend Salesforce. In this session, we showcased tons of new features on AppExchange, like personalized recommendations and the recently launched Consultant Finder.


Salesforce MVP Stephanie Foerst spent part of the session going over her favorite marketing and service apps. Here's a handy list:
