The essential guide to Gartner Catalyst 2017 in San Diego, CA

If you’re headed to Gartner Catalyst 2017 in San Diego, CA August 21 – 24, or if this is your first time at a Gartner event, here’s your essential guide to get the most out of the upcoming conference. We hope you find it useful.

This is a conference for technical professionals. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet with your peers across all disciplines including CIOs, CTOs, solution architects, developers, database admins, data scientists, data engineers, business analysts and DevOps, amongst others.

Gartner has lined up a host of hot topics and session tracks, so be sure to check out the official session calendar to build your personalized schedule that you can access from the Gartner Events Navigator. They also have a mobile app (Android, iOS and Windows) that you can use after you have registered, and this will come in handy as you move around at the conference between sessions, roundtables, meetups, networking, and breakfast/lunches.

Actian CTO Mike Hoskins, will be sharing Actian’s Hybrid Data Vision as part of his talk titled “Actian: Drowning in Data? How to Bridge the Gap to Business Insights.” The talk will be held in the TechZone Theatre/Harbor Ballroom, Second Level on Wednesday, August 23 @ 1:30 PM PT, so be sure to add this one to your calendar. This talk is in the same area as, and during, the coffee/desserts break, so seats tend to fill up fast… don’t be late or you’ll be left standing!

Remember that the event is in San Diego, California and not in San Diego, Texas! The nearest airport is San Diego International Airport (SAN), formerly known as Lindbergh Field, which is located a short distance by car/taxi from the event hotel. Most local school districts have either just started or are starting their new school year, so the event is perfectly timed to miss the peak Summer vacations for many US tourists. Be sure to check out the local weather forecast before you pack your suitcase. Remember to find some time to stretch your legs and explore the nearby Gaslamp District and Seaport Village. Check out Gartner’s latest event-related venue and travel information, as there are some travel alerts to be aware of.

The Actian team will be there, and we look forward to meeting you in person at the Actian Booth #108 in the Harbor Ballroom, second level of the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego.

We’ll be sharing our hybrid data vision and will have subject matter experts available onsite to walk you through our portfolio of hybrid data-management, -analytics and -integration products and services for Technology Professionals like you.
