ASIS unveils new hybrid of digital and in-person Global Security Exchange

Event to be held 27-29 September online and in-person at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida


ASIS International announced its decision to move its Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2021 to a hybrid experience with in-person and digital features that will take place 27-29 September. The integrated event will be hosted in-person at the Orange County Convention Center located in Orlando, Florida as well as online via the GSX event portal.

“This past year left an indelible mark on how we gather, learn and network. We took these key learnings into consideration along with our new reality in re-designing the GSX experience,” said John A. Petruzzi, Jr., CPP, 2021 president, ASIS International, in a prepared statement. “Another priority for us was to expand GSX offerings on a global scale so that security professionals anywhere in the world would have access to our best-in-class digital and in-person content and experience.”

According to a statement, registrants will be able to choose how to connect to the GSX experience. All Access registrants will be able to earn 21 CPEs. Additionally, All-Access in-person registrants will have access to pre- and post-show exclusive content.

The digital audience will enjoy access to a broadcast studio format, watching some sessions live with the in-person audience, exclusive live interviews, and on-demand sessions.

“In developing GSX 2021, we recognize that security professionals are straddling two worlds simultaneously—physical and virtual,” said Peter O’Neil, FASAE, CAE, CEO, ASIS International. “While many professionals are focused on the health and safety of global citizens, security professionals are an essential element of that and more. By offering a truly integrated approach, GSX 2021 promises to be an event of the highest quality for the security profession.”
