Why do the world’s busiest, most ambitious CIOs come back every year?

Because Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ is more than a technology conference. It’s the only place to find superior content, insights and networking focused on turning the latest in technology and business strategy into action.

Watch our 2019 video or view our 2019 brochure to see why this is the one conference that most CIOs can’t and won’t miss.

Network with your peers

The research-backed sessions, keynote speakers and experts alone make Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ 2019 worthwhile. But what takes the experience to a whole new level is the conversations you and your team will start here — that magic “light bulb” moment when three different presentations meet one big new insight or trend during a peer-to-peer conversation.


Meet with Gartner experts to learn about the latest strategic trends and explore how these insights can be applied to achieve your mission-critical priorities.


Get inspired by visionary leaders who have unique perspectives on business, technology and life.


Try out game-changing technologies all in one place — and discover solutions that will add the most value to your business.


Expand opportunities through networking and discover answers to shared challenges face-to-face.
