ASIS International, the world's largest association for security management professionals, will move its Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2021 to a hybrid experience with in-person and digital features that will happen from 27 to 29 September 2021.

The three-day event features daily global keynote and game-changer presenters as well as concurrent education sessions focusing on the most pressing issues faced by the security profession. This 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,” stated John A. Petruzzi, Jr., CPP, 2021 President, ASIS International. “The event will showcase content related to how the world has changed and how we need to evolve our thinking around global security and safety in protecting people, property and intellectual assets. 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.”

The GSX educational lineup addresses the most pressing topics and challenges to today's security professionals. Attendees will be able to curate their experience, whether attending in-person or digitally, to advance their knowledge and understanding around these subject areas.

GSX 2021 will include more than 80 education sessions covering a range of topics from national security to community safety. Registrants will be able to choose how to connect to the GSX experience. 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 recognise that security professionals are straddling two worlds simultaneously — physical and virtual,” stated 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.”
