Your name badge allows you entry into all conference-related activities (sessions, Solution Showcase, hospitality suites, meals and so on). They are also tagged so that we are able to scan the sessions you’ve attended and provide a conference evaluation tailored to these specific sessions. Also, your badge grants you access to all preconference activities on Sunday, August 19.

 

Absolutely not! As long as you have fully paid your registration fee, you have access to all on-site activities and documentation. If you’re interested in becoming a Gartner client while on-site, you can visit the Gartner Zone to better understand the benefits you’ll receive by becoming a client.

 

The Gartner Events Navigator app is our own mobile device (smartphone and tablet) application that makes it easy for you to navigate and build your agenda and keep tabs on what’s happening while on-site. Download the app, sign in with the information you used on Events Navigator and you’ll be good to go. Whether you use Gartner Events Navigator through your desktop or the app, your agenda will sync up with ease. Also, you’ll receive push notifications while on-site to remind you of some of the key happenings.

 

Don’t forget to bring your business cards! You’ll have tons of opportunities to network with peers and solution providers, and it’s the easiest way to exchange contact information. If you have a smartphone or tablet, this will also come in handy, as your entire agenda can be organized with the Gartner Events Navigator app and viewed from most mobile devices.

 

In addition, we’ll have charging stations throughout the conference space. Bring your chargers so that you never have to go offline. For those of you traveling internationally, be sure to pack travel adapters. If you typically wear glasses or contact lenses, be sure to bring any backups you might own. Also don’t forget any medications you might need to take throughout the week.
