Fraud Alert

We have been made aware that service providers, such as Exhibition Housing Management, have contacted individuals who are attending our conference to offer hotel reservation services and/or sell copies of the confidential attendee list.


Please note that Gartner has NOT authorized them, or anyone else, to contact attendees on our behalf, nor does Gartner share/sell attendee contact information to anyone.


Providers have been identified include, but are not limited to:


  • Conference Connects
  • Exhibition Housing Management
  • E-hoteliers
  • Campaign Propellant
  • Leads Pioneer
  • Fine List Info
  • Trade Show Planners
  • MSP Channels
  • Reach Executives
  • Good Sign Tech
  • Technologi Search


To Be Safe

Event attendees should not share any personal information, including credit card information, with these groups and should follow the booking instructions on the Venue & Travel page to make all hotel reservations.


Booking with unknown service providers exposes you to the risk of incurring fraudulent credit card charges as well as not actually having a valid reservation for the event.


If you are contacted by a fraudulent service provider, please be sure to inform Gartner at GartnerGlobalEvents@gartner.com.
