Las Vegas Convention Center Gun Policy

Weapons of any type are not allowed on Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) property.  However, exceptions will be made for GSX 2018 attendees who are operating in an official capacity while attending the event and are therefore required to be armed. The LVCC asks that those individuals visit the Security Dispatch Window located in the Grand Concourse of the LVCC to advise the Executive Director of Customer Safety that they are a GSX attendee, are in the building, and are armed. Please notify the Executive Director of Customer Safety each day that you are on property and armed.

Networking Events Gun Policy

Only on-duty local (Las Vegas) law enforcement officers are permitted to have guns at Brooklyn Bowl and Drai’s Nightclub. These venues do not have gun vaults available on-property.

ASIS International will review special requests for refunds after GSX 2018 and no later than 14 December 2018. ASIS retains the right to determine what constitutes an emergency situation, if additional supporting documentation is required, and if a refund will be given, and ASIS’ decision will be final.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

ASIS uses a singular database as our system of record and interacts with other systems, such as event registration systems, through Single Sign-On (SSO). In addition to the benefits for the end user to have a single authentication process for our ASIS digital platforms, it provides the organization a layer of security in the ability to protect data in our primary system. As data privacy and security become even more paramount, under GDPR, this allows us to monitor and maintain how any individual’s data is stored, used, and updated from a singular view. Additionally, it protects the data accuracy for the organization by eliminating duplication of records and incomplete or erroneous data. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact ASIS Member Services, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am–5:00 pm ET.
