ASIS International, an association for security management professionals, and VerticalXchange, strategic partnership broker for global industry leaders, announced a partnership focused on executive-level relationship building and education opportunities for senior buyers and trusted vendor partners. Through this agreement, the two organizations have joined forces to launch a new era for SecurityXchange, now in its 18th year and to be renamed SecurityXchange 1:1. This enhanced event combines the power of the ASIS Diamond Club program with the experience of SecurityXchange, an industry-leader in one-to-one facilitated partnerships.

“We are excited to partner with an organization that shares our commitment to operational excellence, outstanding customer service, and continuous improvement and innovation,” said Ron Rosenbaum, chief global marketing and business development officer, ASIS International. “As one-to-one relationship development experts, VerticalXchange brings a proven process to developing strategic partnerships that empower executives to shape and lead their companies and the security industry. SecurityXchange 1:1 is the perfect complement to our growing portfolio of industry leading events.”

Taking place August 12-15 in Park City, Utah, this vent will bring together senior executives from leading integrators, solution providers and prequalified security buyers for concentrated discussions focused on addressing attendees’ business needs, as well as valuable peer-to-peer relationship building. SecurityXchange 1:1 will also include three executive peer-to-peer KnowledgeXchange sessions –– for critical infrastructure security executives, for security executives in food and beverage processing and for cyber technology in the physical security industry — that provide executives the opportunity to collaborate with peers, and exchange expertise and experience while designing solutions to their specific security challenges.

“We obviously believe in the power of strategic partnerships,” said Greg Geisler, CEO and founder, VerticalXchange. “We believe in them for our clients and ourselves. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with ASIS to extend the benefits of our process to an even greater number of executives in the security industry. We know that senior security executives are operating in a business world that is filled with unbelievable volatility and change, and we know from years of experience that strategic partnerships provide the best way to transform those challenges into opportunities that can create and maintain competitive edge.”

In the coming months, ASIS and VerticalXchange plan to introduce additional executive education, networking, and business building opportunities for ASIS members and partners.
