ISC West 2023 Sees Substantial Growth in Attendees
In Las Vegas, the annual security event posted noteworthy numbers, marking significant gains from recent years.
NORWALK, Conn. – Touting impressive attendance figures, ISC West, in collaboration with premier sponsor the Security Industry Association (SIA), saw a robust 56% year-over-year gain in attendance for ISC West 2023, hosting over 27,000 security industry professionals in Las Vegas, March 28-31.
“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,” says 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, ISC West reports: Post-show attendance numbers totaled over 18,000 attendees, an increase of 56.2% from ISC West 2022. Additionally, this year’s show saw an 89.6% increase from 2022 for SIA Education@ISC 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,” says 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. The 2023 event reinforced why ISC West is considered the nation’s premier security event.”
