2004 ASIS Special Report: Exhibitors Share Show Experiences, Impressions of 2004 Expo
DALLAS — It’s tough to stand out from the crowd. Just ask one of the more than 800 companies trying to make their case on the ASIS show floor. The convention center saw its share of companies that would have little interest to the electronic security world like those selling security mirrors, guard services and security robots. There were others, however, who offered the best of what the alarm business had to offer.
SSI offers a peek at some of those booths to hear what they have to say about the show and the industry.
“It’s a no-brainer to have one reader to invest in. The customer wants a one-stop-shop solution.”
— Paul Piccolomini, vice president/general manager of the Access Control division of Tyco Fire & Security
“It’s the first time we’ve exhibited and we’ll definitely be back. I didn’t realize there were so many end users here. It’s nice to help them out.”
— Ted Suever, regional sales manager for test and measurement provider Triplett Corp.
“People are spending a lot of money on cameras and lenses and they’re failing in night conditions. Day/night cameras are becoming more affordable. That has brought a need for more day/night lenses.”
— Adam Colombo, manager of CCTV sales at lens manufacturer Fujinon
“Wireless is finally so well respected. I’ve been doing this for years, but the trust factor is finally here. The demand is here. Anytime you can save a dealer time, our time is now.”
— Anthony Diodato, president of access control/security integrator Cypress Computer Systems Inc.
