NORWALK, Ct.—Touting impressive attendance figures, ISC West, in collaboration with the Security Industry Association (SIA), saw a robust 56 percent year-over-year gain in attendance for ISC West 2023, event organizers announced.

This year’s ISC West hosted over 27,000 security industry professionals in Las Vegas from March 28-31 to learn, see, and experience the latest security technology trends. 

"As the nation’s leading comprehensive and converged security trade event of the year, attendance numbers from ISC West were remarkable, proving our industry is resilient and continuing to grow," said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC event vice president. “We held more than 85 educational sessions and saw 660 exhibitors showcase the latest technology and innovation on the show floor, creating a pre-pandemic atmosphere that left many attendees speechless.” 

Compared to previous ISC West conferences, this year’s numbers were impressive. Post-show attendance numbers totaled over 18,000 attendees, an increase of 56.2 percent from ISC West 2022. Additionally, this year’s show saw an 89.6 percent increase from 2022 for SIA Education@ISC education session attendance figures. 

“This year’s ISC West was a tremendous success, as measured not only by the strong show attendance but also in the quality of the SIA Education@ISC programming that was delivered,” noted SIA CEO Don Erickson. “The value of this ISC West was seen also in the many meetings and special events that allowed the entire security ecosystem to come together on important topics like school security, standards development, cyber-physical security, protection of critical infrastructure and the growth of our industry’s workforce.”
