New Dates Set For Rescheduled ISC West Conference

The original show was postponed in March due to concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis that has spread globally.

After being postponed earlier this month due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISC West is now scheduled to take place on July 20-22 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, according to an announcement from Reed Exhibitions. 

“We take pride in offering vital business opportunities to our customers, including networking, education and access to new products and technologies, and commit ourselves to making July’s ISC West 2020 event live up to high standards,” ISC West wrote in a statement on its website

The large security industry conference, which typically draws around 30,000 attendees, was originally planned for March 17-20. Though organizers initially announced their plans to go on with the show, several companies indicated that they would not send their employees to attend or work the booths at ISC. From there, Reed Exhibitions decided to postpone. 

On the ISC West website, organizers wrote that their decision to reschedule was based on “our close monitoring of ongoing developments with the virus, recent reports from public health officials and extensive consultation with our partners in the global security community.” 

All contracts for exhibit space and media will be rolled over toward participation in the July conference, according to an email from Trish Moubayed, sales manager for ISC Security Events. 

In the meantime, ISC West and its main sponsor SIA (Security Industry Association) are planning ways to connect with attendees and “keep our world moving” as the coronavirus crisis continues to play out.

Don Erickson, the CEO of SIA, wrote in an email to attendees that the organization will hold its annual membership meeting, called The Advance, as a virtual webinar at 1:30 p.m. EST on March 17. During the meeting, SIA Chairman Scott Schafer will speak about new benefits planned for members and provide an update on SIA’s achievements. Members can register here.

“[SIA] will be rescheduling committee meetings, events and other gatherings around the show, and we will alert you as soon as possible once the new dates, times and locations of these SIA events are known,” Erickson wrote.
