Those who have attended in the past know the best way to start off your ISC West Expo experience is by attending the 11th Annual SSI Hall of Fame event. This is where those who have established indelible industry legacies are saluted and mingle with other high-profile professionals.
The class of 2014, which this year includes six industry greats, will be honored during the official induction ceremony beginning at 4:30 p.m. and held during the SAMMY Awards the eve of ISC West’s exhibition (April 1) in Room 502 of the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. As has been the case in recent years, SSI Hall of Famer and “Big Idea” columnist Ron Davis will emcee the inductions.
Founded in 2004 to represent the highest honor for extraordinary professionalism, conduct and achievement, each year SSI’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to those remarkable people who have had an unforgettable impact on the industry, continuously sustained over the duration of a long and illustrious career. Nominated by past inductees and other luminaries, this year’s six honorees join 67 others in the industry’s pantheon. For more information on this year’s new Hall members, see SSI’s March issue for in-depth profiles.
Be sure to arrive early at the April 1 event as the presentations begin promptly at 5 p.m. And the reception beforehand offers a fantastic opportunity to mingle and network with the most iconic and unique cross section of the industry you’ll find anywhere. Perhaps the best part is it is absolutely free to attend, open to all industry professionals and includes hors d’oeuvres and beverages. I’ll see you there!
