Enhancements for Top Networking Events at ASIS 2017 in Dallas

18 April 2017

​Today, we announced new schedule changes and enhancements to our lineup of networking events at ASIS 2017, 25-28 September in Dallas.

This year, we are retiring our traditional welcome reception and launching an all-new Opening Night Celebration at Gilley's Dallas on Sunday, 24 September from 7:00-10:00 p.m. This festive event will bring together thousands of security professionals from across the globe for a truly Texas experience.

"The opening night celebration will be unlike anything you've experienced in the past," says Charles E. Andrews, CPP, Texas native and director, ASIS International Board of Directors. "There will be mechanical bull riding, armadillo races, live music, and of course, plenty of old-fashioned fun. We look forward to welcoming attendees to Texas and showcasing what makes our state so special."

We are also moving the ASIS 2017 President's Reception to a new night, Wednesday, 27 September from 7:00-10:00 p.m., and this year it will take place at the 80,000-seat AT&T Stadium—home of the Dallas Cowboys. The event provides the opportunity to participate in on-the-field games and drills, tour the locker rooms, and meet the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.

"ASIS has a renewed commitment to making its Annual Seminar and Exhibits the industry's flagship event of the year," said Thomas J. Langer, CPP, 2017 president, ASIS International. "We've listened to our members, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors, and that feedback is reflected in our modernized agenda for Dallas."

The Opening Night Celebration and President's Reception are ticketed events. Admission is included with the All-Access conference pass. Exhibitors also receive ticket allotments to both events. All are welcome. Additional tickets may be purchased on the event site at
