One of the main goals of the Large Hadron Collider is to find signatures of physics Beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. One way to do this is by studying with high precision the interactions of the Standard Model. In this talk, we address the discovery potential of New Physics in the exclusive channel pp → p X p which relies on the general purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider and their respective forward proton detector stations, located at about ~ 210 m w.r.t. the interaction point. These reactions are highly sensitive to quartic electroweak gauge interactions. As a proof of concept, we discuss the exclusive diphoton production at high diphoton invariant mass. We quote sensitivities on the anomalous γγγγ coupling for an integrated luminosity of 300 fb1 at the center-of-mass energy of 14 TeV.We also discuss the discovery potential of 3γZ anomalous quartic gauge coupling by measuring the pp → p(γγ → Zγ)p reaction.
