ISC Solutions reverts to ISC East name
ISC organizers say that, after consulting with ISC attendees, exhibitors, supporters and associations, they are returning to the original name for their New York event: ISC East.
The name changed from ISC East to ISC Solutions in 2010 to focus on end users and vertical markets, but organizers say the event never really lost its original handle.
“Over and over, people familiar with the show told us that, ‘We don’t care what you name it, we call it ISC East,'” says Ed Several, senior vice president, ISC Events. “They want it to be the East Coast version of ISC West for all segments of the security channel. They want a place where they can network with peers, meet their customers, see new products, and get relevant education to improve their skills. Therefore, we will be adding the best of ISC West along with some distinctly Northeast features to ISC East.”
The exhibition, to be held Oct. 30-31, 2012, at the Javits Center in New York City will feature more than 300 exhibitors showcasing new products, technologies and services. According to the event organizers, for dealers, installers, integrators and specifiers, the event will focus on retro-fitting and updating to increase profits. For end users, achieving business optimization is the main theme.
ISC East will be part of SIA Security Week, which also includes Securing New Ground, the Security 500 Conference and Recognition Dinner, and the Security Week Gala, presented by ISC East sponsor and partner, SIA. Other ISC East industry partners include the Interport Police, International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS), SecuritySpecifiers.com, the New York Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NYBFAA), the New Jersey Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NJBFAA), the Pennsylvania Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (PBFAA) and the Connecticut Alarm & System Integrator Association (CASIA).
