ISC East attendance up eight per cent
ISC East 2015, sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), delivered a solid audience of security professionals with an eight per cent increase in attendance and a sold out Show floor.
ISC East, the largest physical security tradeshow in the northeast, offered the security industry over 210 exhibitors, 18 SIA Education@ISC education classes and the largest Featured Product Showcase all in one location at the Javits Center.
“This year’s ISC East was outstanding,” said Ed Several, Senior Vice President, ISC Events. “The Show floor was 3,000 sq.ft. larger than last year, the attendance increased by 8% and the SIA education classes were informative and valuable. ISC East sponsored by SIA is moving in the right direction. We thank the entire industry along with SIA for their great support.”
The SIA Education@ISC education series presented complimentary classes on hot topics such as wearable cameras, scalable storage, open space video surveillance, campus security, why IoT matters and the smart home market.
“The attendee-packed exhibitor booths at ISC East and standing-room only SIA Education@ISC conference sessions reflected the enthusiasm that continues to drive technological growth and ingenuity throughout our industry,” said Don Erickson, Chief Executive Officer, Security Industry Association.
“We had not exhibited at ISC East since 9/11. Our participation at ISC East 2015 resulted in quality conversations and leads that exceeded our expectations. Thank you for getting the right audience on the show floor,” said Rebecca Hall, Perennial Software.
“Gem Electronics developed three new HD 1080p Product Lines this year. These products are absolutely necessary to achieve perfect performance on the New HD-TVI, CVI and AHD security systems. ISC East proved to be the undisputed best show that we have attended all year to introduce these products to marketplace. The attendees were all well informed and therefore I had no time wasted. Every moment was productive and I am sure is that our business will benefit enormously,” said Bill Pitcher, Gem Electronics.
The largest ever Featured Product Showcase boasted 40 products from cameras to biometric access control devices to Cloud-hosted security platforms. The coveted People’s Choice Award, voted on by attendees, was awarded to iLuv for mySight, a Wi-Fi Cloud-Based HD Video Camera for Home and Business Monitoring.
In addition to the products and exhibitors, ISC East offered attendees the chance to swing a club at their favourite golf course in the Golf Simulator sponsored by OneRoof, Ganz Security, ZKAccess and Connectwise. On Thursday, November 19 attendees and exhibitors had the chance to meet baseball great, Darryl Strawberry sponsored by Rapid Response.
With the growing event, ISC East presented tools to make the most of an attendee’s time including My Show, an online tool to plan your schedule and connect with exhibitors before the Show. At the Show, the ISC East Mobile App sponsored by Genetec synchs with the My Show account to bring your agenda as well as to navigate the Show floor all from your mobile device.
Next year ISC East will be held November 16-17, 2016 at the Javits Center. Over 20,000 sq.ft. of space has been renewed for ISC East 2016.
