How do I sign up for a Gartner one-on-one?
One-on-ones are available exclusively to paid registered full conference attendees and are not available to exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders.

Preregistration for one-on-ones and small sessions will be available soon through Gartner Conference Navigator, our online agenda-building tool.  

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 one Gartner expert in a private 30-minute one-on-one meeting. Due to the high demand for particular experts, signup is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Interactive sessions such as roundtables, workshops and Meetups are available exclusively to paid registered conference attendees and are not available to exhibitors or exhibitor conference session pass holders. Due to the high demand and limited availability (up to 12  per session), we recommend you register in advance for these unique sessions. Preregistration will be available through Gartner Conference Navigator, our online agenda-building tool.

Yes, we will have a Gartner expert guide with a list of our experts and the key areas with which they can assist you. Please check back for the guide.

What should I do as a first-time attendee?

  • Before you arrive, build your agenda using Gartner Conference Navigator (on your desktop or via our mobile app).
  • Make sure your profile is complete in order to get the best from our profile match feature. Share information about your interests and priorities to discover the sessions that are the best fit for you.
  • Be sure to register in advance for any roundtables, Gartner one-on-one meetings or workshops you’d like to attend. We also have networking breakfasts and breaks running throughout the conference to help you expand your network.
  • If you need a hand getting started, contact the Conference Concierge Team for assistance. They can create an agenda based on your priorities, recommend exhibitors to connect with and even schedule your Gartner one-on-one meeting.

What is the Gartner Conference app and do I need to download it?
Gartner Conference Navigator is our mobile app (available on Android and iOs) that makes it easy for you to navigate and build your personal agenda. Download from your app store, sign in with your log in details and you’ll be good to go. Don’t forget to opt-in to receive push notifications while with us to keep informed of the latest conference updates.

 Is my attendance limited if I am not currently a Gartner client?
Absolutely not! As long as you have fully paid your registration fee, you have access to all conference activities open to you along with Gartner session documentation. If you’re interested in becoming a Gartner client, you can visit the Gartner Zone to better understand the benefits you’ll receive.

Are there limited seating sessions that I need to sign up for?
Yes, you will need to sign up in advance for some sessions like workshops, Meetups and roundtables. If you try to register for a session and it is listed as “full” or “closed,” there is still a possibility you can attend. Once at the conference, find the room for that session and arrive there about 15 minutes prior to the session start to have your name added to the waiting list. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

What should I wear?
We suggest comfortable shoes — you’ll be doing a lot of walking from your hotel room to the event space, from session to session and navigating the Exhibit Showcase. Business casual dress is what most attendees opt for, but we also recommend that you dress in layers as the conference rooms can get chilly.

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 & 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
