ISC West 2020 in-person event has been canceled

ISC West 2020 in-person event has been canceled

Originally scheduled for October 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada, ISC West 2020 has been canceled due to industry and market circumstances; however, Reed Exhibitions, along with Premier Sponsor SIA, will transform ISC West 2020 into an all-virtual event taking place October 5-7, 2020 to serve the security and public safety community. 

“While we are very disappointed to not be able to meet face-to-face this year in Las Vegas, we look forward to continuing to help the ISC West community engage via digital programs, resources and connections,” Will Wise, Group VP, Reed Exhibitions, said in the announcement. “Our team, along with our valued venue partner, Sands Expo and Venetian, is working on detailed planning and protocols for ISC West 2021, which will take place March 23-26, 2021.” 

During this time of major change and transformation in the U.S., the ISC West community of security integrators, installers, dealers and consultants, along with corporate, government and law enforcement/first responder practitioners, have frontline essential services and mission-critical responsibilities. Amidst travel and budget restrictions, security industry professionals and solution providers are playing a major role in serving regional communities, as businesses are working on re-opening and re-designing facilities in order to ensure public health and safety across all cities and communities. 

“We at SIA sincerely regret not being able to meet face-to-face in Las Vegas in 2020,” said Pierre Trapanese, SIA Chairman. “We know the importance of ISC West to our community and know that we have a responsibility to our industry to adapt during this period. We will continue to provide our members with timely information and resources on an on-going basis. We look forward to producing a great virtual event with the ISC team, anchored by a compelling SIA Education@ISC conference program delivered in a dynamic format in October.”

All amounts paid for exhibit space or media to date for the March 2020 ISC West edition will be or can be credited and used as follows in any combination:

  • Towards participation in the March 24-26, 2021 edition of ISC West.
  • Towards participation in ISC West 2020 Virtual Event (Oct 5-7).
  • Participation in ISC News Digital Sponsorships, ISC West Virtual Vendor Solution Sessions or Partner Bulletins (pending availability), must be fulfilled by West ‘21 live event.
  • Towards participation in ISC East 2020 (November 18-19, 2020).

The credit can be applied to your outstanding balances for any event for which you are already contracted to participate or to new contract(s) listed above.

Refunds can be requested upon approval. A 20% retention fee will be collected on the contracted obligation, due to sunken costs incurred by Reed Exhibitions for the 2020 event and contractors/suppliers.

“We will be rolling out additional information on the ISC West 2020 Virtual Event soon, including formats for education, discussion groups, matchmaking, showcased solutions and technologies, plus elements to celebrate the security community, and support our charity partner Mission 500 and their key role in helping kids and families in crisis,” stated Mary Beth Shaughnessy, event director of ISC Security Events. “Regarding ISC East 2020, our smaller scale, more regional-focused event slated for November 18-19 in New York City, we will be assessing event viability over the next 8-10 weeks with guidance from the Javits Center, New York State and New York City authorities. We will continue to consult with SIA, with the ASIS NYC Chapter, and other Northeast regional association supporters, along with our loyal community of attendees, speakers and exhibitors. Our security community is committed and resilient and we look forward to continuing to rally and adapt with everyone to chart the course forward.”
