Attendees booked at the government rate will be notified of any change and will not be charged a deposit until check-in. They will be subject to the same cancellation policies as outlined. A valid government or military ID will be required at check-in for the hotel to reconfirm your eligibility to receive the per diem rate.
If the public-sector rate is no longer available and you chose to book a room at the commercial rate, please note that the price will not be adjusted, regardless of your public-sector status. The rate listed in your confirmation email will be the rate you will be charged by the hotel.

I received a phone call from someone saying they can offer me a room at a lower rate or at a different hotel. Is this a scam?
It is possible that you may receive phone calls, emails or see websites from unaffiliated organizations and individuals who claim to be acting on behalf of Gartner and offer assistance booking a hotel room for the conference. Please note that Gartner has not authorized them, or anyone else, to contact you on our behalf.
Gartner does not recommend that you do business with them or provide them with your contact or payment information or other personal details. If you choose to do so, you solely assume the risk. A list of known unaffiliated organizations, web sites and individuals may be found here: Fraudulent Hotel Providers.
If you have questions or would like to report a scam attempt, please email ReportPhishing@gartner.com.
