The Power of Networking

Explore networking opportunities and benchmark your strategies with over 950 of your CIO and Senior IT Executive peers at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Goa this November.

The CIO Experience offers CIOs a one-of-a-kind experience specifically designed to focus on your business, technology and leadership development as a CIO.


Roundtables: Share insights and learn from the lessons, approaches and experiences of your fellow attendees in these small, informal, Gartner-analyst-facilitated sessions.*


Peer Meetups: Sit down with a small group of your peers to build relationships and discuss the topics that matter to you, without Gartner facilitation, in the spirit of solving business problems together.


Workshops: Take center stage with your peers as you work through important topics, solve thorny issues and walk away with effective answers.*


Ask the Analyst sessions: These are small interactive sessions where you can directly ask analysts questions and learn from those posed by your peers.*

ITxpo receptions: Evaluate the provider landscape and prepare for future projects. Experience services and technologies from the world’s leading solution providers by attending lively receptions that facilitate a meaningful exchange of ideas.


Solution provider sessions: When you’re looking for products and solutions to address a specific issue, solution providers will deliver a 360-degree view of your options. These sessions help expand your perspective.


Social engagements: The best business relationships often begin as personal connections. That’s why we arrange social engagements at every chance. From welcome receptions to special evening events, it’s the relaxed moments and social bonds that bring us closer.


Gamification: Good-natured competition is a great motivator. So we’ve created a fun, points-based game within the Gartner Mobile Connection tool. Ready to make more peer connections? Attend an analyst one-on-one? Complete tasks and earn points? Take out your smartphone and let the games begin.
