Hikvision Drops ASIS / GSX, Ex-Dahua ISS CMO Takes Advantage

By: John Honovich, Published on Aug 02, 2018

The fallout of the Ban Bill has begun and it is hurting the already beleaguered ASIS GSX show next month.

Mega-exhibitor Hikvision has now decided not to exhibit at ASIS GSX, dropping their 3,600 sqft booth, putting a big hole in the center of a show struggling to get exhibitors. But one marketer has already capitalized on Hikvision's pain.

Inside this note, we examine the move, why it happened and what it means both for ASIS and Hikvision.
