Products, Partners, Possibilities Await ISC West 2023 Attendees
The electronic security industry’s most prominent trade show returns to the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, March 28-31.
LAS VEGAS — The electronic security industry’s most prominent trade show — International Security Conference (ISC) West — returns to the Venetian Expo March 28-31, reconnecting dealers, integrators, manufacturers, distributors, monitoring providers and other channel partners as well as a broad range of verticals and industries. Last year’s event attracted nearly 20,000 security professionals and organizers expect 2023 to eclipse that number.
“The numbers for ISC West 2023 are strong and trending upwards,” says ISC Security Events EVP Mary Beth Shaughnessy. “We are expecting more than 600 exhibiting companies and 20,000+ total industry professionals with an increase in international attendance as well.”
Registered attendees have access to the expo floor where they can connect with representatives of hundreds of companies in a variety of security verticals and to the SIA Education@ISC program. It will feature more than 70 panel discussion and presentations exploring trends and innovations in physical, connected and cyber security.
Exhibitors presenting the newest products available in access control, alarms & monitoring, drones & robotics, IT & IoT security, smart home solutions, video surveillance and more are expected to fill a busy expo floor. Attendees will get looks at the most recent advancements in technology as well as a chance to network with thousands of their peers.
“One theme running through ISC West this year will be the convergence of security and how to take a holistic approach to challenges,” Shaughnessy states. “Companies need to merge the concept of cybersecurity and physical security to protect their organization’s assets and data critical infrastructure. The Connected IoT area on the show floor will now feature cybersecurity to better reflect the type of exhibitors and content offered at ISC West and support attendee demand for cybersecurity related solutions.”
The conference program, presented in partnership with ISC West’s premier sponsor SIA, will feature sessions devoted to some of the most challenging topics in security. That will include active shooter training and school safety; securing supply chains; the converging worlds of physical and cyber security; career development; the impact of AI and edge computing on security technology; identifying and mitigating insider threats; drone and counterdrone strategies and the regulatory environment around them; public/private partnerships with law enforcement; and more.
“We are particularly excited about our Workforce Development and Career Zone, a new hub dedicated to young professionals and next-gen leaders in the security industry,” says Shaughnessy. “Not only will it offer workshops on mentoring, personal brand-building and retaining talent, but it will also feature a professional headshot studio and a cornhole section for networking.”
ISC West will also feature myriad special events including the SAMMY Awards and SSI Industry Hall of Fame presentations, SIA New Products + Solutions Awards (following the SAMMYs), Mission 500 Security 5K Run/2K Walk, and the SIA Women in Security Forum Breakfast and Power 100 Celebration.
“A few areas on the show floor have been expanded and redesigned to better reflect the future of the industry,” adds Shaughnessy. “The Bridge, ISC’s main stage destination, will unveil a new, elevated look and feel as it spotlights innovation, partner integrations and hosts special award ceremonies [SAMMYs and SIA NPS].”
SSI editors will be reporting from the show floor throughout the exhibition to provide breaking news, live tweets, pics, videos and more.
