More ways to build relationships, solve problems and challenge your thinking

At this year’s Gartner CIO Leadership Forum, you’ll gain insight into the powerful digital forces at work in IT and the business ecosystem through workshops, roundtables, analyst one-on-one meetings and more.

In addition to all forum keynotes and breakout sessions, you will have access to: 

Hands-on workshops*

Engage in lively dialogue, earnest debate and real problem solving as you and your peers work through important topics and find effective answers to difficult challenges.

Expert-led roundtables*

Relax and share insights at these informal, Gartner-analyst-facilitated sessions, designed to maximize your learning through the lessons, approaches and experiences of fellow attendees.

Analyst one-on-one meetings*

Explore your plans, ideas and questions with the undivided attention of a Gartner analyst who can offer objective guidance on the topics most important to your success.


As a forum attendee, you’re entitled to book up to two analyst one-on-ones. However, one-on-ones are always in high demand — book early!
