As the COVID‐19 pandemic continues to affect the way of life of security professionals and citizens around the globe, ASIS International is currently tirelessly exploring options for Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2020, scheduled to take place 21‐23 September in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
At this stage, the company is evaluating their means of safely accommodating attendees at the Georgia World Congress Centre in accordance with health and safety recommendations, and their means of potentially moving the event, in part or in full, to a virtual environment that offers the same high quality content, instructors, and dynamic interaction that the visitors have come to expect from the in‐person GSX gatherings.
Safety and well‐being
The company will deliver an update on the status of GSX 2020 no later than 22 June
It is the event organisers’ plan at present to confirm whether GSX 2020 will take place live on or before 22 June. They believe this will provide their attendees and exhibitors with the notice they need to make arrangements for their participation. The company will deliver an update on the status of GSX 2020 no later than 22 June.
They, the ASIS International Global Board of Directors and HQ Team, appreciate the participants’ and visitors’ understanding as they make the decision that is right for their attendees, speakers, staff, exhibitors, and other stakeholders. ASIS International lets the readers know that all GSX 2020 decisions will be driven by what is in the best interests of the safety and well‐being of all GSX constituents.
Knowledge exchange and support
Given the rapidly evolving nature of the world everyone lives in, the company believes the knowledge exchange and support network GSX provides are more important than ever. For further information, the readers can visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the company’s official website.
Lastly, as the company closes this communication, they would like to take a moment to recognise and thank those among their membership who have worked tirelessly on behalf of their organisations and communities. ASIS International would also like to recognise and honour the work of all healthcare providers and first responders globally.
