The Gartner 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.

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 Gartner Attendee Portal during the conference to see if space has opened up. Spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

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 pass holders.

Preregistration for one-on-one meetings and small-group sessions are available through the Gartner Attendee Portal. To accommodate time zones, one-on-one meetings run from 8 a.m. through to 8 p.m. EST each day of the conference.


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.

Most presentations will be available to registered attendees on demand in the Gartner 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 Gartner 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 who 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
