Fraudulent alert

Gartner has been made aware that service providers have contacted a number of individuals who are attending our conference, and either (a) offered to assist in securing hotel accommodations, or (b) stated that because the official conference venue has been overbooked, they will locate alternative hotel accommodations (for an additional fee), or (c) stated that they are able to sell copies of the attendee list. Please note that they do NOT represent Gartner, nor have we authorized them or anyone else to contact attendees on our behalf.

Conference attendees should not share any personal information, including credit card information, with these groups and should follow the booking instructions on the Venue 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 conference.

If you are contacted by a fraudulent service provider, please be sure to inform Gartner at
