ISC West, originally scheduled to be held March 17-20, will now take place July 20-22 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. The event organizers issued the following statement.
“We at ISC West want to express our concern for everyone impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus. 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,” the event was moved from March to July.
“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. Over the coming weeks, along with ISC West’s Premier Sponsor SIA, we will continue to serve the industry, creating ways to connect, collaborate, and keep our world moving during this difficult period.”
Commenting on the announcement, Will Wise, group VP for Reed Exhibitions, said, “This is not a decision we have taken lightly; our customers, partners and staff have worked diligently to create an ISC West experience for the industry across converged security innovations, public safety best practices and strong community collaboration. It is imperative that we maintain our commitment to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved with ISC West. Reed Exhibitions would like to express sincere gratitude to all exhibitors, partners, attendees, suppliers, media, and staff, in addition to our Premier Sponsor SIA, for their support and communications during this challenging time and we look forward to welcoming the global security and public safety community to Las Vegas in July.”
In addition to ISC West, now occurring in July at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, ISC East will occur as scheduled November 18-19 at the Javits Center in New York City, along with Premier Sponsor SIA and in partnership with ASIS NYC.
