Who are Gartner experts?

Gartner experts are the people behind the research our clients trust. Gartner experts extract insights from qualitative and quantitative research and from thousands of CFO interactions every year. As unbiased leaders in the finance field, Gartner experts serve as conference speakers, advisors for conference attendees and research facilitators. 

Opportunities to interact with finance experts

In addition to attending any track sessions across the conference agenda, as an attendee, you’re entitled to the following live, interactive sessions: one Gartner one-on-one meeting, three roundtables, three Ask the Expert sessions and two workshops* for a deeper and more personal dive into hot topics shaping the future of finance. A full list of sessions will be available on the agenda once our 2022 program is finalized.

Gartner one-on-one meeting*

This popular session provides you 30 minutes of undivided attention and support from a Gartner expert. Get feedback on a key initiative or recommendations to tackle an urgent challenge. Attendees tell us these meetings in themselves are worth the cost of the conference admission.


Your finance executive peers from leading organizations and various industries discuss relevant topics inspired by the latest research in these Gartner-expert-moderated, small-group sessions. CFO Roundtables** are also available and are for CFOs only.
