ASIS International has just announced that the in-person GSX 2020 conference originally scheduled for September 21-23 in Atlanta has been canceled.
In it’s place will be a virtual experience Global Security Exchange Plus (GSX+) from September 21-25.
“Launching GSX+ as a virtual-only experience will provide our members, exhibitors, sponsors and others with a one-of-a-kind approach that will advance security worldwide,” says Godfried Hendriks, CPP, president of the ASIS Global Board of Directors. “While circumstances dictate that we must forgo an in-person meeting this year, we are excited for GSX+ to deliver to a wider global audience the exceptional security networking, marketplace, education, and training that truly set GSX apart. There is a growing demand for a comprehensive experience that helps the entire security profession learn and grow together.”
GSX+ will offer opportunities to network, education classes, and more.
“We are pleased to unveil our new GSX+ model, which will deliver the same number of CPEs as GSX, more accessibility with a lower cost to participate, and will live online for several weeks after an initial 5-day live event,” Peter J. O’Neil, FASAE, CEO, ASIS International. “It’s never been more important for organizations to focus on risk management and business continuity. GSX+ offers a new way for professionals to come together, discover new technologies and approaches, and dive into important discussions around global best practices.”
