ISC West, in collaboration with premier sponsor the Security Industry Association (SIA), has recently unveiled event details for the upcoming ISC West 2021 event, taking place July 19-21 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
With attendee registration open and the opportunities available for security and public safety professionals at the conference known, ISC West is anticipating a return to Las Vegas in the range of 50-60 percent of 2019 visitor levels. Not counting exhibit staff and speakers, this would estimate to around 10,000 core security and public safety professionals.
After a long pause due to COVID-19, integrator, dealer, installer and practitioner organizations are signing up to attend, including security professionals from the American Integrated Security Group, ASAP Security, BlackRock, the City of Los Angeles, the Department of Homeland Security, IBM, Lockheed Martin, MGM Resorts International, Molson Coors Beverage Company, the National Football League (NFL), Nextgen Integrated Solutions, Siemens, Travelers Insurance and the Utah Transit Authority, along with an estimated 400-plus exhibiting brands — roughly 35 percent of which are exhibiting for the first time at an ISC West event.
New innovations which have emerged since the last in-person ISC event will be showcased on the expo floor and via SIA’s New Product Showcase. The 2021 Exhibitor List features confirmed brands such as: 3xLOGIC, ADT Commercial, Alarm.com, Allegion, Alula, Alvarado (a dormakaba company), Axis Communications, Axon, Alcatraz AI, Anno.Ai, DMP, Genetec, Napco Security Technologies, Paxton Access, Skydio, and Seagate Technology.
“The entire ISC West team is excited to welcome back the industry in-person to Las Vegas this year,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC event director. “It’s been a very long 15 months, but as one of the first major security events to take place since 2019, we’re ready to safely get back to business. Our customers' health and safety is of utmost importance to us, and we’ll be taking proactive steps and implementing new guidelines and policies to help support a safe experience for our customers to network face-to-face with industry peers. We look forward to working with Mission 500, the SIA Women in Security Forum, SIA RISE and other industry partners to converge the industry together. As this year’s event motto states ‘Safety. Security. Health. It re-starts here with ISC West.’ — we truly believe in this statement and cannot wait to accelerate market recovery together in Las Vegas!”
Simultaneously, the SIA Education@ISC West Program recently revealed full conference details, highlighting more than 65 sessions and over 115 confirmed speakers, in addition to this year’s Keynote Series Sessions featuring Dave Komendat, vice president and chief security officer, enterprise operations, finance and sustainability, enterprise services at The Boeing Company; and James Gagliano, retired FBI supervisory special agent, law enforcement analyst, adjunct assistant professor and doctoral candidate at St. John’s University.
While popular sessions including the Active Shooter/Stop the Bleed Workshop and the dedicated Tec@ISC track (presented by PSA Security Network) will be returning for 2021, the schedule has also added a COVID-19 Response & Public Safety and Health track, featuring four sessions dedicated to the health and safety response in a post-pandemic, new normal world.
“SIA is excited to reconnect in-person with so many members and partners at this year’s ISC West,” said Don Erickson, SIA CEO. “Our learning and development team is working with an exceptional cadre of speakers this year to deliver a very relevant SIA Education@ISC program, addressing important topics like the cybersecurity of IoT solutions, business resilience and post-pandemic health and safety changes. 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.”
