“It was a rare annual opportunity to connect with my colleagues at GSX 2022. Having been in the industry for several years, GSX gives me the opportunity to network with the security industry while representing Acoem and Acoustic Threat Detection. It’s always an incredible experience to have the chance to meet with other professionals on this scale, answer questions about our product (ATD) and also to learn about new and emerging technologies.” — Russ W. ATD Sales Director
“The GSX Atlanta conference was an outstanding learning experience about not only contemporary emerging technologies in the global security industry, but also just as importantly, minimizing risk.
