ASIS International opened registration for the industry’s flagship event, the Global Security Exchange (GSX), taking place Sept. 23-27 in Las Vegas.

Formerly known as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX will deliver the year’s most comprehensive security event, packed with peer networking, innovative technologies and expert-led instruction that hones-in on both day-to-day challenges and the emerging risks and threats facing security professionals across the globe, the organization stated in a press release.

“This is not your typical security conference,” said Peter J. O’Neil, CEO, ASIS International. “GSX will elevate the traditional event experience with modernized, immersive education, exceptional networking opportunities, and an expo floor that will be transformed into a learning lab environment.”

The five-day event opens the door to the entire industry — cyber and operational security professionals from all verticals across the private and public sector, allied organizations and partners, and the industry’s leading service and solution providers. The conference program will feature globally recognized thought leaders and discussions on hot topics across nearly two dozen tracks. The learning formats range from deep dives to small-group programs, ensuring attendees at all career stages can gain valuable peer insights and information that can be immediately implemented, ASIS International described.

ASIS International 2018 President Richard E. Chase said, “The challenges facing security professionals continue to increase exponentially. Attending GSX is the best way to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving security landscape.”

More than 500 exhibiting companies will be showcasing breakthrough innovations and exciting new products and services that are revolutionizing the security space.

Early bird savings are available until June 30. ASIS members enjoy free access to the expo floor and receive significant savings on their conference registration. Credentialed members of the media can register for a free GSX press pass by emailing
