As of 4 April 2022
We are excited to welcome you back to our in-person conferences this year. Our current health & safety guidelines for our conferences through June are outlined below, as well as additional details to help you plan for the in-person experience.
As a part of our commitment to creating the safest possible environment for our community, we will require all attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners to be fully vaccinated to participate in this year’s in-person conferences. All participants will be asked to agree to adhere to Gartner’s on-site safety guidelines and measures.
We will continue to monitor the global and regional response to the pandemic and may adjust our plans accordingly. To ensure you have the most up-to-date information, the latest health & safety guidelines for each conference will be communicated directly to all registered participants via email no later than two weeks prior to the conference start date.
We require all attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners to be fully vaccinated to participate in this year’s in-person conferences.
Please note that the above policies are for attendance at the Gartner Conference; host countries may have additional travel requirements in place. Please consult airline and host country websites for additional information as it pertains to your travel.
We have partnered with our venues and suppliers to help create a clean and safe conference:
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), UK Government and the World Health Organization (WHO), individuals are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥two weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series or ≥two weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine. Currently, a booster shot is not required, but we will continue to align to the definitions of the above organizations.
The majority of our customers continue to tell us that a fully vaccinated audience is a key contributor to creating the safest possible atmosphere for their return to an in-person Gartner conference. Therefore, a negative COVID-19 test or proof of previous COVID-19 infection will not be accepted as a substitute for being fully vaccinated.
As we know, the health & safety environment continues to evolve. We will ensure any changes or updates to our planning are communicated here, and to registered participants via email no later than two weeks prior to the conference.
Gartner will not be providing testing at the venue, but we will be partnering with local health officials to provide easy access to testing and medical care as needed.
