How do I change or cancel my hotel reservation?

Should you need to change or cancel your hotel reservation prior to the housing deadline you can do so by logging into your registration profile or by emailing Gartner Conferences Team. If you need to change or cancel your hotel reservation after the cutoff date, you will need to contact the hotel directly.

 

What is the hotel cancellation policy?

From the time of booking, you have three business days to cancel your reservation without incurring a cancellation fee. Cancellations made outside of this window and prior to the hotel’s individual cutoff dates will be charged a nonrefundable cancellation fee equal to a one-night stay. After 5:00 p.m. IST on the individual hotels cutoff dates given below, the hotel will charge a nonrefundable deposit of the full minimum night stay. The rate provided at the time of booking and listed in your confirmation email will be the rate charged to the credit card provided at the time of booking for your nonrefundable deposit or cancellation fee, including applicable taxes and fees.

 

I received a phone call from someone saying they can offer me a room at a lower rate or at a different hotel. Is this a scam?

Gartner Global Conferences will always provide notice to attendees and exhibitors when using a third-party provider, such as George P. Johnson (GPJ), as part of the conference administration. Please note, many of our exhibitors and delegates have been contacted by an organization called Exhibitors Housing Management claiming to be affiliated with Gartner. This is a scam as Gartner is not in any way affiliated with EHS. If you have registered as an attendee or exhibitor for a Gartner conference and you receive an email from a third party provider claiming to be contacting you on behalf of Gartner Global Conferences, please contact Gartner Global Conferences at 000.800.050.1058 to verify the third party provider prior to responding.

 

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?

For additional assistance, please reference our Hotel Booking Guide or contact Gartner Conferences Team at  +61 2 8520 3132 (click here for a list of our global numbers).

When will I have access to documentation?

Registered attendees will be informed via email as conference documentation becomes available on Gartner Conference Navigator. This email will include step-by-step instructions to access presentations and select audio-recorded sessions.

What should I do as a first-time attendee?

  • Before you arrive, build your agenda using Gartner Conference Navigator on your desktop or via our mobile app.
  • Make sure your profile is complete in order to get the best from our profile match feature. Share information about your interests and priorities to discover the sessions that are the best fit for you.
  • Be sure to register in advance for any roundtables, Gartner one-on-one meetings or workshops you’d like to attend. We also have networking breakfasts and breaks running throughout the event to help you expand your network.
  • Join us on the Exhibit Showcase during daily receptions so you can meet with the technology leaders in the space and find the solutions you need.

 

What is the Gartner Conferences app and do I need to download it?

Gartner Conference Navigator is our mobile app (available on Android and iOs) that makes it easy for you to navigate and build your personal agenda. Download from your app store, sign in with your log in details and you’ll be good to go. Don’t forget to opt-in to receive push notifications while with us to keep informed of the latest event updates.

 

Is my attendance limited if I am not currently a Gartner client?

Absolutely not! As long as you have fully paid your registration fee, you have access to all event activities open to you along with Gartner session documentation. If you’re interested in becoming a Gartner client, you can visit the Gartner Zone to better understand the benefits you’ll receive.

 

Are there limited seating sessions that I need to sign up for?

Yes, you will need to sign-up in advance for some sessions like workshops, Meetups and roundtables. If you try to register for a session and it is listed as “full” or “closed,” there is still a possibility you can attend. Once at the conference, find the room for that session and arrive there about 15 minutes prior to the session start to have your name added to the waiting list. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Bookings open for these sessions for alumni on 15 January 2020,  and for the general public on 1 February 2020.  

 

What should I wear?

We suggest comfortable shoes — you’ll be doing a lot of walking from your hotel room to the space, from session to session and navigating the Exhibit Showcase. Business casual dress is what most attendees opt for, but we also recommend that you dress in layers as the conference rooms can get chilly.
