Been to Symposium Before?

Sym Club

To qualify for Sym Club membership (formerly Gold Program), you must have attended at least one Gartner Symposium/ITxpo global event in each of the last three consecutive years. If you've attended for the last two years, you are qualified for Sym Club status if you attend in 2013. To retain Sym Club status, you must attend on an annual basis.
