Networking at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit

Engage in person with the top data and analytics leaders, Gartner experts and industry-leading solution providers.

Networking at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit isn’t just about meeting new people. It’s about candid conversations with world-class data and analytics leaders from various backgrounds, organization sizes and industries. It’s diving into what’s working — and what isn’t — with your peers in facilitated small-group discussions. It’s discovering new technologies at the Exhibit Showcase, engaging in meaningful discussions in a roundtable session or getting tailored guidance during a one-on-one meeting with a Gartner expert.

With three days and access to more than 4,000 data and analytics leaders, you have ample opportunities to make lasting connections.

Connect with peers

Some of the most invaluable pieces of information come from peers. At Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, you have access to all of these moments for real talk, inspiration and, if we’re being honest, commiseration.

Interactive sessions

Discuss and work through your most pressing issues with peers in group settings through interactive sessions, such as workshops and Contract Negotiation Clinics.

Networking receptions
