ISC West, a security industry exhibition organiser, in collaboration with premier sponsor Security Industry Association (SIA), held their ISC West 2021 event, 19-21 July at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. It was the first time the security industry had gathered for a major show since 2019.
Organisers Reed Exhibitions anticipated visitors levels returning to 50-60% of 2019 levels, with final visitor numbers around 10,000 security & public safety professionals.
The aim was to reunite the ISC community back together in-person. Of the estimated 400+ exhibiting brands, approximately 35% were exhibiting for the first time at an ISC West event.
Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC event director, said: “It’s been a very long 15 months, but as one of the first major security events to take place since 2019, we were ready to safely get back to business.”
The SIA Education@ISC West Program involved 65+ sessions and over 115 confirmed speakers, in addition to the Keynote Series Sessions.
Don Erickson, SIA’s CEO, said: “SIA is excited to reconnect in-person with so many members and partners at this year’s ISC West. We’re also pleased to deliver a strong complement of educational sessions for chief security officers and other practitioners and we look forward to announcing our SIA Women in Security Forum keynote speaker very soon.”
