Analyst Interaction

How do I sign up for an Analyst One-on-One?

One-on-ones are available exclusively to paid, registered conference attendees and are not available to ITxpo exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders. Due to the high demand for these appointments, each attendee may reserve up to three one-on-ones during Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014, each with a different analyst or consultant. Once prebooking opens, registration for analyst one-on-ones is available through Events Navigator (our online agenda building tool).

Am I guaranteed the analyst of my choice in my One-on-One meeting?

All registered Symposium/ITxpo attendees have the exclusive opportunity to speak directly with up to three Gartner analysts in private 30-minute one-on-one meetings. Due to the high demand of particular analysts, sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis.

How do I sign up for an Analyst/User Roundtable?

Analyst-user roundtable sessions are available exclusively to paid, registered conference attendees and are not available to ITxpo exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders. Due to the high demand and limited availability (up to 12 end users per session), we recommend you register in advance for these unique sessions. Once prebooking opens, registration for analyst-user roundtables is available through Events Navigator (our online agenda building tool).

Is there a list of analysts who will be available at the event?

A full listing will be posted on Events Navigator in the upcoming months.

What is the difference between documentation and the Symposium On Demand Multimedia content?

The documentation includes all Gartner presentations available pre-event. This is available shortly before the event, and registered attendees will be sent this notification via email.
