ISC West 2023, taking place at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, has plenty to consider aside from a full slate of SIA Education@ISC (March 28-30) and traipsing across the exhibition hall (March 29-31). As you scope out a daily itinerary, here are a handful of programs and activities to consider.
FAST Golf Classic
The annual Foundation for Advancing Security Talent (FAST) golf tournament on March 28 will allow industry professionals to network and golf as they support vital industry initiatives.
The golf tournament is FAST’s primary fundraising event. Funds raised through the tournament will be funneled into initiatives that support workforce development efforts to attract more qualified talent to our growing and evolving industry. For more information and to register, go here.
Mission 500 Care Pack Event

New Product Showcase
The Security Industry Association’s (SIA) New Products + Solutions Awards is billed as the security industry’s premier awards-based marketing program, which was established in 1979 to recognize innovative products, services and solutions in electronic physical security. Each year, the NPS program recognizes winners in several product and service categories and presents the prestigious Judges Choice and Best New Product Awards.
