ISC West 2020 to take place in October

ISC West 2020 to take place in October

NORWALK, Conn.—ISC Security Events Team sent an email to ISC West exhibitors announcing that ISC West will now take place October 5-8 at Sands Expo in Las Vegas. Giving the continually evolving COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home guidelines, the July dates, as previously announced, are no long viable.

“Considering the escalation of COVID-19, travel and social distancing restrictions, and the economic impact over the past five weeks across the United States and the world, it is necessary to reschedule the event to October,” Will Wise, Reed Exhibitions Group VP said in the email.

Wise added that they are working closely with Sands Expo in pursuing the best opportunity for ISC West to facilitate the conduct of business, education and peer-to-peer engaged platforms.

“Holding the event six months from now in October will offer the best scenario to support the security and public safety industry, in addition to the Las Vegas community,” Wise said. “It is an unprecedented time and we appreciate how the community is adapting, adjusting and rallying.”

According to an email following the one from the ISC Security Events Team from Don Erickson, CEO, Security Industry Association (SIA), ISC West will be co-located with the Global Gaming Expo (G2E).

G2E is “a similarly dynamic event operated by Reed Exhibitions that services the commercial casino and tribal gaming industry, and one that we think holds great opportunity for collaboration,” Erickson said. “SIA will reschedule our own events and programs to align with these new show dates.”

Things to look forward to at ISC West, October 5-8 at Sands Expo in Las Vegas:

  • The SIA [email protected] West Conference Program will kick off on Monday, Oct. 5 and run through Wednesday, Oct. 7.
  • SIA Committee Meetings and the SIA Market Leaders Reception will take place on Monday, Oct. 5.
  • The ISC West Exhibit Hall will be open Tuesday, Oct. 6 through Thursday, Oct. 8 with standard operational hours.
  • The ISC West Keynote Series will take place Tuesday, Oct. 6 and Wednesday, Oct. 7.
  • The SIA Women in Security Forum Breakfast will take place on Thursday, Oct. 8.

In addition, approximately 14 percent of ISC West's primary exhibitors base of 800 companies are slated to exhibit at GSX. To help provide and invest in operational support and logistics for these customers, Reed Exhibitions will be providing complimentary caravan/freight transportation shipping services from Atlanta to Las Vegas to help alleviate any additional planning and logistic stresses.

“Our industry is essential to the safety and security of our communities, infrastructure and business,” Pierre Trapanese, SIA Chairman and CEO, Northland Controls, said. “This is going to be a tough year for people everywhere, and the sooner we can get some clarity on the normal and provide solutions relevant to our situation the better. Our mission is to be a catalyst for success within the global security industry. We look forward to ISC West Fall 2020 providing a forum from which everyone in our industry can begin to re-establish ties with each other and work toward succeeding in this new environment.”
