What to Expect at ISC West 2023
By ISC West
Taking place March 28-31 (SIA Education@ISC: March 28-30 | Exhibit Hall: March 29-31) at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, the International Security Conference & Exposition – also known as ISC West – is the leading comprehensive and converged security trade event in the U.S. At ISC West, you will have the chance to network and connect with thousands of security & public safety professionals, learn from the dynamic SIA Education@ISC program, plus explore the latest technologies in Access Control, Alarms & Monitoring, and Video Surveillance, while discovering emerging trends in Drones & Robotics, Cybersecurity & Connected IoT, Smart Home, and more. Offering the combination of products, educational programming, and networking opportunities all in one place truly makes ISC West the premier destination to showcase innovation and discover what is new and next in the industry.
The planning for ISC West is in full swing and going well. The show has great momentum from exhibitors and attendees, and the show has already surpassed the number of exhibitors and the square footage of 2022. ISC West is expecting over 650 exhibitors this year. There is a good deal of exhibitor optimism and the strong performance of ISC West 2022 has fueled demand for increased booth space from many exhibitors.
One theme running through the show this year will be the convergence of security and how to take a comprehensive approach to challenges. Companies now need to merge the concept of cyber and physical security together to protect their organization’s assets and data critical infrastructure. Therefore, new this year, the Connected IOT featured area will include Cybersecurity to better reflect the type of exhibitors/content that have been added to the show to support attendee demand for cybersecurity-related solutions and content. It can be a one-stop shop for physical security teams who also are working with their IT security teams in an organization. Our Day 1 Keynote, “Secure the Future: Cybersecurity Trends & Best Practices for Business,” with speaker Theresa Payton and sponsored by Salto will focus on actionable strategies for keeping your business, your people, and your data secure.
An exciting new area that ISC West will be featuring this year is the Career Zone. The brand-new Career Zone will be the hub for young professionals and next-gen leaders in the security industry. This area of the show floor will feature a professional headshot studio, sponsored by Axis Communications, workshops on mentoring, personal brand-building and social media, plus a cornhole area for networking.
A further novelty for 2023 will be the increased focus on the Security Industry Association (SIA) New Products & Solutions Awards, sponsored by UPG, and The Bridge. Both areas were in the heart of the show floor in 2022 and will be expanded and enhanced for 2023.
The SIA New Products & Solutions Awards reflect the evolution of the security industry to include offerings beyond solely hardware and software, while still retaining the longstanding and highly respected SIA NPS brand. The products and solutions are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience and entrants compete for awards in 36 categories, as well as the prestigious Best New Product and Judges’ Choice awards.
The Bridge stage is an exciting show feature that is the hub of the exhibit hall. Placed in the center of the show floor next to SIA New Products & Solutions Awards, sponsored by UPG, this highly trafficked theater is designed to spotlight innovation, new technology and partner integrations in the industry and will host special events like the awards ceremony for the Mission 500 5k/2k Race.
