Attendee Cancellation Policy
If circumstances change and you can no longer attend this Event, you may cancel your registration by providing written notice to the program manager or your main point of contact.
Canceling your event registration does not automatically cancel your hotel and travel arrangements. Attendees are responsible for canceling their own hotel and travel reservations.
Substitution and Badge Policy
Sharing of Attendee passes is not permitted at any time. Badges are issued to, can be picked up by, and used by only the Attendee named in the registration. Photo ID will be required for each Attendee when collecting a badge onsite. Badges must be worn at all times during the Event.
An Evanta Event badge allows an attendee entry to the overall Event, but cannot guarantee admission to every session, lounge, or meeting area. Admission is subject to the Event venue capacity and other requirements. For example, certain sessions may be restricted from vendor attendees.
At the Event
Badge Scanning at Evanta Sessions & Functions
Evanta uses handheld badge scanning technology across our Events. Badge scanning is used by Evanta to manage and administer sessions, including to determine session attendance, manage capacity, and enforce session restrictions, where applicable. At some Events, badge scanning may also be used by our Sponsors and partners as outlined below.
Evanta Event Registration allows entry to specific defined sessions,but cannot guarantee admission to every session. Session admission is subject to venue capacity and other criteria (for example vendor/ end user, etc.). Building an agenda on the Evanta app does not guarantee access to these sessions. Session attendance, assuming you meet the session criteria, is based on a first-come first-served basis.
Use of Multimedia at the Event
In order to comply with global data privacy laws, Evanta imposes certain restrictions on the use of multimedia at its Events (i.e., photography, video, audio, online streaming and all future mediums).
For Attendees and Sponsors: Evanta leverages social media to post real-time Events photos and videos to its social media feeds, and display select submissions from those feeds on monitors throughout the venue. Attendees are encouraged to capture their Event experiences in the permitted areas of the Event venue and post their own social content from the Event (text, photos, audio, video, streaming), provided it does not defame other Event attendees or Sponsors or infringe on copyrighted Gartner branding and content. Evanta will determine in its sole discretion which posted content will be displayed on the overhead monitors at the Event venue.
By attending the Event, you acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) Evanta may edit and use the footage it captures at Evanta Events for marketing and promotional activities and for any other lawful purpose in the ordinary course of its business; and (b) Due to the prevalence of mobile recording devices such as smart phones, Evanta disclaims all liability for the capture of your image by Attendees (who are not under Sponsorship contracts with Evanta) in any multimedia format at the Event.
During the course of the Event, it is not uncommon for Attendees to participate in meetings, ad-hocs or scheduled sessions with other companies of the same industry. In any such situation, you agree to adhere to the following Antitrust Guidelines.
