ALEXANDRIA, Va.—ASIS International President Godfried Hendriks and CEO Peter J. O’Neil sent a joint letter to members today, providing an update on the what the organization is considering for the upcoming Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2020, scheduled to take place Sept. 21-23 in Atlanta, Ga., including the possibility of a virtual event.

ASIS International said it is currently “tirelessly exploring options” for GSX 2020. “At this stage, we are evaluating our means of safely accommodating attendees at the Georgia World Congress Center in accordance with health and safety recommendations — and our 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 you have come to expect from our in-person GSX gatherings.”

ASIS said it will confirm whether GSX 2020 will take place live on or before June 22. “We believe this will provide our attendees and exhibitors with the notice they need to make arrangements for their participation,” they said. “We, the ASIS International Global Board of Directors and HQ Team, appreciate your understanding as we make the decision that is right for our attendees, speakers, staff, exhibitors, and other stakeholders.”

Hendriks and O’Neil ended the letter to thank “those among our membership who have worked tirelessly on behalf of their organizations and communities. We would also like to recognize and honor the work of all healthcare providers and first responders globally.”
