What are the conference hours?

The official conference hours will be announced shortly.

What is included as part of a virtual conference experience?

The virtual conference features guest keynotes, Gartner expert presentations, case studies, interactive sessions facilitated by Gartner experts and on-demand content.

Do I need to preregister for any sessions?

Interactive sessions, such as roundtables, workshops and Ask the Expert sessions, are available exclusively to paid registered conference attendees, excluding exhibitors and exhibitor conference session passholders. Because of high demand and limited availability, we recommend that you register in advance. Preregistration will be available through the conference Attendee Portal. Opening dates will be updated here when they become available.

How can I access the conference and navigate the sessions?

The conference Attendee Portal is a one-stop shop for attendees to build their agenda, navigate sessions and activities, meet with leading solution providers and watch available on-demand content. Registered attendees receive attendee communications prior to the start of the virtual conference with additional information on navigating the portal and how to build personalized agendas.
 

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

No. As long as you have fully paid your registration fee, you have access to all conference activities open to you along with Gartner session documentation.  
 

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

Yes. You will need to sign up in advance for some sessions, such as workshops, roundtables and Ask the Expert sessions. If you try to register for a session and it is listed as “full” or “closed,” there is still a possibility you can attend. Check the Attendee Portal during the conference to see if space has opened up. Spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Which Gartner experts will be speaking at the conference?

Please check our speaker page.

How do I sign up for Gartner one-on-one meetings?

Gartner one-on-one meetings are available exclusively to paid registered full conference attendees. They are not available to exhibitors or exhibitor conference session passholders. Because of the high demand, each attendee may reserve one 30-minute one-on-one meeting with a Gartner expert. Preregistration for one-on-one meetings and small-group sessions are available through the conference Attendee Portal. 


Am I guaranteed the expert of my choice in my one-on-one meeting?

All registered attendees have the exclusive opportunity to speak directly with a Gartner expert in a private 30-minute one-on-one meeting. Because of the high demand for particular experts, speaker selection is on a first-come, first-served basis.


Are there any restrictions around Gartner one-on-ones?

One-on-ones are not available for vendor briefings or product demonstrations with experts. The expert reserves the right to stop the meeting if this occurs. Gartner clients interested in briefing analysts should email the Vendor Relations department at vendor.briefings@gartner.com to schedule a meeting following the conference.

What should I do before the virtual conference begins?

  • Complete your profile with your interests and priorities and you will be presented with recommended sessions to build your agenda.

  • Build your agenda from a live agenda page in the conference Attendee Portal and download directly to your Outlook calendar or iCalendar.

  • Register in advance for any roundtables, Gartner one-on-one meetings or workshops you’d like to attend.

Will content be available on demand after the conference is over?

Most presentations will be available to registered attendees on demand in the conference Attendee Portal for three months (90 days) after the conference. Some of the interactive sessions and Q&As will not be recorded or available.

The conference Attendee Portal can be accessed from the conference website in the top right. Only registered attendees will have access to the portal and conference materials.

Am I able to purchase a copy of the attendee list?

No. Gartner does not post or sell attendee lists. For more details, please review the registration terms and conditions.

Please be advised that in the conference industry, we often come across fraudulent service providers that claim to be able to offer attendee lists or discounted passes. Gartner has not authorized anyone to contact you on our behalf, and we encourage you to avoid these attempts by not engaging with suspicious emails or calls as they are phishing scams. If you have been contacted by such a provider, please inform Gartner at ReportPhishing@gartner.com
