Special Sessions

In addition to our comprehensive tracks, our Agenda also features several special sessions providing opportunities to learn from and interact with Gartner analysts, industry experts and peers, and top solution providers:

  • Keynote Sessions

    Typically presented by non-Gartner industry leaders, these plenary sessions are designed to be entertaining and thought-provoking.

  • Workshops

    Presented by Gartner or guest experts, these intimate workshops provide an opportunity to drill down on specific "how to" topics in an extended, small group environment. Sessions designed for end users only. Registration required.

  • End-User Case Studies

    Gartner invites a number of end users to personally present leading-edge case studies and answer questions.

  • SOLUTION PROVIDER SESSIONS

    Real success stories
    These sponsor-led sessions feature some of the market's most fascinating solutions. You'll hear real-life examples from those who have deployed solutions successfully, including their strategies, challenges and results.

  • Analyst One-on-Ones

    Sit privately for 30 minutes with a Gartner analyst specializing in the topic you'd like to discuss. Many attendees tell us that a one-on-one session is worth the price of admission, all by itself.

  • Analyst-User Roundtables

    Hear how your colleagues from various industries tackle problems similar to yours. These small group discussions provide an informal setting for you and your peers to share insight, challenges and concerns on today's hottest topics.
