ASIS renewed its commitment to making the 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2017) the industry's flagship event of the year. The Society listened to its members, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors—and that feedback is reflected in the modernized exhibit floor in Dallas.
This year the exhibit hall has been transformed into a learning lab environment featuring dozens of education sessions, product demonstrations, and career development opportunities. These features will allow attendees to experience a wide variety of integrated solutions in person while getting up-close and hands-on with the latest technology applications.
New this year, the Impact Learning Theaters (booths 1253 and 3795) will feature a series of 25-minute presentations by leading technology practitioners, end users, researchers, and thought leaders on a wide array of critical security issues and hot topics. These sessions are free to all attendees and provide an opportunity to investigate innovative ideas and solutions in a more intimate setting. A complete list of expo floor education can be found in the ASIS mobile app.
Also new this year is the ASIS Collaboration & Networking Zone (3509), presented by Anixter, which provides security integrators, end users, and suppliers a place to network and collaborate. Attendees can speak with Anixter's Technology Support Services, navigate through a virtual tour of a secured building, win prizes at each of the interactive stations, and relax in the lounge area.
For those looking to recharge and refuel, several lounges will be available on the exhibit floor. The Connection Lounge (booth 3447) is open to all attendees and will provide a place relax and network with peers. The Certification Lounge (booth 4499B) is open to all ASIS board certification holders, and the CSO Lounge (booth 1453) is available to members of the CSO Center.
The International Lounge (booth 4399) is open to all attendees from around the world.
In addition, the International Trade Center (booth 4199) will serve as the focal point for security buyer delegations. All attendees and exhibitors are welcome to stop by to connect with trade experts, learn more about the Department of Commerce B2B matchmaking services, and build relationships with colleagues from all corners of the globe.
A complete list of activities and sessions taking place in the exhibit hall is available in the show guide and in the mobile app.
