What is the Gartner Conferences app and do I need to download it?
Gartner Conference Navigator is our mobile app (available on Android and iOs) that makes it easy for you to navigate and build your personal agenda. Download from your app store, sign in with your log in details and you’ll be good to go. Don’t forget to opt-in to receive push notifications while with us to keep informed of the latest event updates.
Is my attendance limited if I am not currently a Gartner client?
Absolutely not! As long as you have fully paid your registration fee, you have access to all conference activities open to you along with Gartner session documentation. If you’re interested in becoming a Gartner client, you can visit the Gartner Zone to better understand the benefits you’ll receive.
Are there limited seating sessions that I need to sign up for?
Yes, you will need to sign up in advance for some sessions like workshops, Meetups and roundtables. If you try to register for a session and it is listed as “full” or “closed,” there is still a possibility you can attend. Once at the conference, find the room for that session and arrive there about 15 minutes prior to the session’s start to have your name added to the waiting list. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
What should I wear?
We suggest comfortable shoes — you’ll be doing a lot of walking from your hotel room to the event space, from session to session and navigating the Exhibit Showcase. Business casual dress is what most attendees opt for, but we also recommend that you dress in layers as the conference rooms can get chilly.
Are there any executive leadership tracks/sessions available at the conference?
Yes, there is an exclusive CSCO Circle available at the conference. Attendance requires application; attendees can apply to the Gartner CSCO Circle as part of the registration process. All qualified registrants will be considered and will be granted confirmation based upon qualifications defined below and space availability. The program has limited capacity to facilitate the interactive, collaborative content.
