In recognition of the company’s 20 years as a digital surveillance pioneer, IDIS has announced a year-long program of global commemoration and recognition events that celebrate the past, present and future of the surveillance company.

These 20th anniversary events will reflect on both the progress and evolution of the company, and the surveillance industry as a whole, since its 1997 founding, the company reported. At the same time, the anniversary events will demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to champion research and innovation in security, surveillance and business intelligence that meet the needs of a fast-evolving security marketplace.

Kicking off at Intersec 2017 in Dubai, IDIS will showcase how it is pioneering the next-generation technologies that will shape the future of security, surveillance and analytics over the next 20 years and beyond. Similar programs will be featured at major tradeshows throughout the year, including ISC West in Las Vegas, IFSEC in London, and ASIS in Dallas. Additional commemorations, celebrations, and activities will continue periodically throughout the year, including social media engagement, competitions, giveaways, videos, awards and more. Most importantly, the celebrations will purposely involve and recognize the contribution of IDIS partners, customers and employees who have made the last 20 years of IDIS innovation a true success, IDIS described.
