IFPO Executive Director Sandi Davies with Kevin Palacios, IFPO Representative for South America at #ASIS17.
From all indications, ASIS International 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Dallas, TX, commonly known as #ASIS17, is in full swing and appears to be a well-attended, rollicking success.
The "must-attend security event of the year" kicked off with Sunday Texas-style with a party at Gilley's in Dallas featuring a mechanical bull riding competition and armadillo races.
On Monday, the opening keynote address was delivered by former U.S. President -- and governor of Texas -- George W. Bush
Several hours later, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban held the opening luncheon.
With the expo floor open, IFPO Executive Director Sandi Davies and the rest of the staff were on-hand at booth 4194 -- and will remain through Thursday -- to answer questions and chat on the importance of certifications in the protection industry.
