ASIS GSX Show Struggling Getting Exhibitors

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 26, 2018

The show formerly known as ASIS, now GSX, is less than 3 months away.

And it is struggling to get exhibitors to go back to Las Vegas, just months after ISC West, in a show with far lower attendance.

In this note, we examine the most notable absences, the openings available and some amazing ways that ASIS is looking to make money.
