Reed cancels ISC East physical event

New York, NY

ISC East 2020, originally scheduled for November 18th -19th, 2020, in New York City, has been cancelled due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and continued restrictions on large events.  The organisers have announced that the physical show will be replaced by a virtual event which will take place on the 18th November 2020.

The next ISC East 2021 physical event will be scheduled to take place at the Javits Center on November 17th -18th, 2021.  The organisers, Reed Exhibitions, in conjunction with Premier Sponsor SIA (Security Industry Association), released a statement as follows:

"Amidst extensive travel restrictions across the majority of the U.S., health and safety concerns due to the pandemic and the essential workers’ responsibility of security and public professionals during this time, it is not viable to meet in person for the event this year. As a means to help connect the community and to recognise the hard work and achievements of security and public safety professionals and leaders this year, ISC East, along with SIA and ASIS NYC, will be hosting a half day ISC East virtual event on Wednesday November 18, 2020 including the prestigious ASIS NYC Person of the Year Award and curated education sessions. In addition, ISC East attendees and supporters are all welcome and encouraged to participate in the ISC West 2020 Virtual Event, taking place online Oct. 5-7, which is free for all to attend."

“ISC East has seen tremendous growth over the past few years, including being named as a 2019 Fastest 50 honouree by Trade Show Executive Magazine. With the strong support from premier sponsor SIA, plus the collaboration and partnering with the ASIS NYC Chapter and other regional tristate Associations, we are confident that we will continue on a positive growth path. We all have a mutual commitment to excellence in security and public safety for the tristate area and Northeast region, and are excited to roll out a bigger and better than ever ISC East in 2021,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC Event Director.

“ISC East is widely recognised as a major platform for industry networking in the tristate area each fall anchored by innovative exhibitors and compelling education sessions delivered through SIA Education@ISC,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA is excited to continue our work with ISC Events and the ASIS NYC Chapter to support the Person of the Year award programme as part of the ISC East virtual event on November 18th 2020, and to produce an impactful ISC East next year.”

“We are grateful for the partnership the ASIS NYC Chapter has established with ISC East. We look forward to the collaboration with ISC East and SIA to produce an impactful and meaningful virtual 2020 Person of the Year Award and Education Programs on November 18, 2020,” said Ray Dean, ASIS NYC Chapter – Annual Conference Chairman.
