GSX attendees tell us their top reason for attending Global Security Exchange (GSX) is to see new products and services.

The Innovative Product Awards (IPA), formally known as Accolades, gives exhibitors the opportunity to highlight their most innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today.  It’s also an opportunity for key buyers and decision makers to see what's new and what's hot in the industry.

When you participate in the IPA you can:

  • Gain a competitive edge in today’s dynamic security marketplace
  • Stand out from hundreds of other exhibitors
  • Reinforce industry expertise and product leadership
  • Demonstrate innovation to customers and prospects


Submissions Close: 26 June 2019


$2,500 per entry
