How do I sign up for an analyst one-on-one?

 

One-on-ones are available exclusively to paid registered conference attendees and are not available to ITxpo exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders. Because of the high demand for these appointments, each attendee may reserve up to two one-on-ones, with a different analyst or consultant. Once prebooking opens, registration for analyst one-on-ones is available through Gartner Events Navigator (our online agenda-building tool).

 

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

 

All registered attendees have the exclusive opportunity to speak directly with up to two Gartner analysts in private 30-minute one-on-one meetings. Because of the high demand of particular analysts, signing up is on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

How do I sign up for a roundtable?

 

Roundtable sessions are available exclusively to paid registered conference attendees and are not available to exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders.

Please note that certain sessions are restricted to end-user delegates only. Providers of IT services/products cannot attend these sessions.
