What’s going on next week at Gartner Symposium?

After over 12 years in Cannes, the Gartner Symposium is moving to Barcelona. The events team told me that they were going to move it in 2012 anyway, but had to do it one year earlier because of the G20 (you know, that meeting that’s turned into a Greek tragedy). Anyhow, is there anyone here who remembers when it all started? I’ve been to about 12 and lost the count…

Here is a summary of activities for AR pros in general.

Monday 7th November 2011
