ISC East 2020 canceled

NEW YORK—ISC East 2020, scheduled for Nov. 18-19, 2020, in New York City, has been canceled due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and continued restrictions on large events.

While ISC East cannot convene in person for 2020, Reed Exhibitions, along with Premier Sponsor SIA (Security Industry Association), announced that ISC East, in partnership with ASIS NYC Chapter, will collaborate to host a virtual event on Nov. 18. The ISC East 2021 event will take place at the Javits Center on Nov. 17-18.

ISC Event Director Mary Beth Shaughnessy pointed out that ISC East has seen “tremendous growth” over the past few years, and she is looking forward to getting back to the in-person event in 2021.

“With the strong support from premier sponsor SIA, plus the collaboration and partnering with the ASIS NYC Chapter and other regional tri-state associations, we are confident that we will continue on a positive growth path,” she said. “We all have a mutual commitment to excellence in security and public safety for the tri-state area and Northeast region, and are excited to roll out a bigger and better than ever ISC East in 2021.”

SIA CEO Don Erickson added, “ISC East is widely recognized as a major platform for industry networking in the tri-state area each fall anchored by innovative exhibitors and compelling education sessions delivered through SIA Education@ISC. SIA is excited to continue our work with ISC Events and the ASIS NYC Chapter to support the Person of the Year award program as part of the ISC East virtual event on November 18th 2020, and to produce an impactful ISC East next year.”

ASIS NYC Chapter – Annual Conference Chairman Ray Dean is confident a virtual event will be a success. “We are grateful for the partnership the ASIS NYC Chapter has established with ISC East,” he said. “We look forward to the collaboration with ISC East and SIA to produce an impactful and meaningful virtual 2020 Person of the Year Award and Education Programs on Nov. 18, 2020.”
