Here are some tips to help you prepare before you arrive at the event!

  • Visit Gartner Conference Navigator and start building your agenda!
  • If you’re a Chief Marketing Officer or Head of Marketing, take a peek at our CMO Circle
  • Book your Gartner one-on-one session early. Bookings open four weeks prior to the event. View our Gartner Expert Guide to see which subject matter experts are holding sessions aligned with your needs.
  • Take advantage of every opportunity included as part of your event registration
  • View the 2019 conference brochure and share it with your colleagues for a detailed look at what to expect

Roundtable, Ask the Expert, Meetup, Gartner one-on-one and workshop sessions require preregistration within Gartner Conference Navigator, and spots fill up quickly! Get more information here.

We recommend arriving by Sunday, April 28, so that you have the opportunity to pick up your name badge and get settled into the hotel.

You’ll have plenty of time to meet with your peers during networking breakfasts and lunches or throughout the day in our convenient lounges. In addition, you’ll be able to learn from your peers during roundtable sessions, 20/20 case study sessions, Solution Showcase receptions and more. Click here for more details.

As soon as you arrive you can visit Registration. You’ll simply enter the email address you used for registration, verify this with a photo ID and receive your conference badge. For additional information regarding your hotel stay or other questions you may have, visit our FAQ page.

Your name badge will allow you entry into all conference-related activities (sessions, solutions showcase, hospitality suites, meals, etc.). Your badge will also grant you access to all pre-conference activities on Sunday, April 28.

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 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 Gartner Conference Navigator and you’ll be good to go. Whether you use Gartner Conference Navigator through your desktop or the app, your agenda will sync up with ease. You’ll also 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 your peers and solution providers, and it’s the easiest way to exchange contact info. If you have a smartphone or tablet, this will also come in handy, as your entire agenda can be organized with the Gartner Events mobile app and viewed from most mobile devices.


In addition, we’ll have charging stations throughout the conference space, so bring your chargers with you so you never have to go offline. For those of you travelling internationally, be sure to pack your travel adapters.
