ORLANDO, Fla. – Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2021 was welcomed at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Fla., late last month.

Presented by ASIS International, the world’s largest association for security management professionals, the event offered discussion and idea exchanges for the global security community. Attendance exceeded projections, with 8,600 registrants from more than 80 countries and 300 exhibitors. More than 7,200 of the registrants were for the in-person portion of the event, creating an estimated economic impact of $18.5 million for the community, according to the OCCC.

“We are thrilled to welcome back GSX 2021 to the OCCC,” said venue executive director Mark Tester. “Both the digital and in-person experience provided an opportunity for attendees to connect and serve the needs of global security professionals. I look forward to welcoming back ASIS to the OCCC for many years to come.”

“I’m proud of my friends and colleagues for arranging what is by all metrics a fantastic GSX,” said John A. Petruzzi Jr., CPP, 2021 president of ASIS International. “We’ve received an overwhelming response from exhibitors and attendees commenting on the high quality of this year’s show. We’re pleased that the new event footprint—placing learning theaters in the exhibit hall—was well received, allowing for ease of access between our event’s best-in-class education and the solutions offered by our exhibiting companies.”

The OCCC is slated to welcome back GSX in 2024 and 2028.
