Three learning stages, each with its own style and content, are designed to offer the security practitioner something unique:




Booth 498 | Frontier Technology, Innovation, and the Future of Security

Dynamic and leading edge educational tracks, panels, and discussions focused on embracing technology to find effective solutions to security challenges.

Spirit of conversations:

  • How did you realize that a solution didn’t exist?
  • What’s next?
  • What excites you most about the future of this space?

Check back for education sessions.





Booth 798 | Case Studies, Evidence of Effectiveness, and the Argument for Efficiency

Showcases tried-and-true best practices. Conversations are focused on underlining success factors, rather than the value of a specific product.

Spirit of conversations:

  • What went right…wrong…and what was the biggest surprise?
  • What were the three most important factors of success?
  • What resources did you wish you had at the beginning that you didn’t know you needed?

Check back for education sessions.





Booth 298 | Town Hall Style Discussions and Debates Around Current Security Challenges and Various Applications of Technology and Procedure

Provides a forum for the discussions that need to take place between practitioners and solution providers.

Spirit of conversations:

  • What are your key factors for success?
  • What makes you different?
  • When shouldn’t your technology method be applied?

Check back for education sessions.


Con-X-tions Lounge | Booth 371

Continue the conversation from the X-Learning Stages, while also recharging, relaxing and networking with peers. Open to all attendees during exhibit hall hours.


GSX D3 Xperience: Drones, Droids, Defense | Booth 2541

Supported by Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI)

NEW in 2018! Whether in the air, on the ground, or underwater, unmanned robotics are changing the world as we know it. Join us for a new special feature area to explore unmanned and interactive robotics. See demonstrations of the latest unmanned aircraft platforms, counter UAS systems, ground-based robots seamlessly interacting with humans, and UAVs operated from Vegas flying patrols in San Francisco. And then take your own turn at the commands to pilot a drone through the “gauntlet”—our own UAV obstacle course where the winning time will take home a DJI Phantom Pro system.

Plus, the GSX D3 learning theater is your one-spot destination to hear about real-world applications, implications, and challenges that come with these innovations. Industry experts, CSOs and enforcement organizations will cut through the hype to provide answers to real-world questions such as:

  • When is it ok to shoot a drone out of the sky?
  • If Intel can fly 2,018 drones operating in tandem, how hard would it be to weaponize these UAVs and create a swarm minefield in the sky?
  • Are DBIEDs (drone-based IEDs) for real?
  • Is the purported drone assassination attempt in Venezuela just the tip of the iceberg?

…and so much more! If you are looking to implement a drone program within your organization, need to hire a drone-as-a-service company to augment security, are concerned about how to counter the threat of rogue operators, seek to understand how to harden your facility to prying eyes or more dangerous incursions, or just want to learn about the latest cutting edge technologies, the GSX D3 Xperience will open your eyes to what’s possible!
