Did you know that GSX has a significant economic impact on each city we visit? Building on a long-standing commitment, ASIS International has made a promise each year to leave GSX Host Cities better for having been there. In 2022, GSX brought $17.5 million to Atlanta, and directly supported 5,000 jobs. In 2023, we would like to take that a step farther, providing you – our attendees – with an opportunity to directly support individuals impacted by laws, social justice issues, and economic challenges which may prevent them from living in a safe, secure, and healthy environment.
