Those who have attended a Gartner Symposium before will know that the analysts have many half-hour one-on-one meetings with clients (while we are not presenting and doing other duties). I have about 20 pre-booked into my calendar already and the topics create a little glimpse into the mood of this year’s event. To my eye it’s looking moderately upbeat and progressive. I can see planning for return to growth as an underlying theme.
I generated a topic word cloud so you can get a sense of the subject categories. Notice the word recession does not appear and cost, though still present, is not pronounced. Obviously this is Vox Pop fun – not research. A very small sample of the thousands of attendees – very selectively biased.
I can’t wait to get into the discussions though – this looks like it will be a great event. I’m expecting it to be very intense, very tiring but totally inspiring.
