A government issued photo ID is required to pick up GSX badges. Photocopies and electronic copies are not considered an acceptable form of ID. GSX-issued credentials are the sole property of ASIS and must be surrendered upon demand to ASIS and/or its representatives or agents.
While onsite at GSX or designated off-site activities, GSX-issued credentials must be prominently displayed. Badge swapping and/or sharing is strictly prohibited. Any attendee found using another attendee’s badge or loaning out their badge to another individual will have the badge confiscated and will be removed from the premises, with the other individual, without refund.
False certification of an individual as an exhibitor’s representative, misuse of an exhibitor’s badge, or any other method or device used to assist unauthorized personnel to gain admittance to the Exhibit Hall will be just cause for expelling the exhibitor and the representative(s) from GSX and/or banning them from future entrance into GSX. This would also warrant the removal of the exhibitor’s booth from GSX without obligation on the part of ASIS to refund any fees. The exhibitor, their employees and agents, and anyone claiming to be in the Exhibit Hall through the exhibitor, waives any rights or claims for damages arising out of the enforcement of this rule.
For all Digital badge holders, login credential swapping and/or sharing is strictly prohibited. Any attendee suspected of or found using another attendee’s login credentials or loaning out their credentials to another individual will have their credentials revoked without refund.
Exhibiting, promotion or solicitation of products and services is allowed from designated exhibit booths only. Solicitation, distribution, advertising, displaying or promotion of any products or other materials or media outside of an exhibitors’ designated booth (suitcasing) is strictly prohibited. ASIS International retains, at its sole discretion, the right to cancel this Attendee registration and to remove or require the removal of any Attendee whose networking or sales conduct is determined to be suitcasing. If such action is necessary, there will be no refund of fees paid to Attendee, nor will ASIS International be liable for any damages including but not limited to any direct, incidental or consequential damages arising from or related to the Attendee’s action or removal from GSX 2023.
You may be asked to scan your badge when attending sponsored sessions or when visiting exhibitor and/or sponsor booths for the purposes of conducting business and marketing communications regarding their own products or services.
If you agree to have your badge scanned, you are consenting to allow ASIS and its representatives and agents to share your contact data with such exhibitors or sponsors. You will be subject to such third party’s communications and privacy practices. If you wish to opt-out or exercise any applicable privacy rights you may have regarding these third-party communications, please exercise those rights directly with those third parties. Note that scanning your badge is optional and you may refuse.
PHOTOGRAPHY, AUDIO, AND VIDEO RECORDING
Due to the sensitive nature of products and displays at the show, professional photography and/or video recording of any booth by any attendee/exhibitor personnel is prohibited. Exceptions are made only when permission is obtained from the exhibitor whose booth/product is being photographed/videotaped and all individuals appearing in the photograph or video.
