Conference Proposals Sought on Critical Issues, Relevant Technologies and New Strategies for Today’s Dynamic Security Market
Silver Spring, MD – The Security Industry Association (SIA) and ISC Security Events have announced that the SIA Education@ISC team is seeking quality session proposals for two upcoming events: ISC East 2018 – Nov. 14–15 in New York City – and ISC West 2019 – April 9–12 in Las Vegas, NV. The deadline to submit speaking proposals for ISC East 2018 has been extended to June 6, and the deadline for ISC West 2019 is June 15.
ISC West – North America’s largest security event with an attendance of 30,000 – and ISC East – the premier security event in the Northeast, and attended by 4,500 security professionals – are considered the two leading U.S. events for the security industry.
The ISC Security Events provide offerings in many areas, covering solutions such as access control, alarms and monitoring, biometrics, identity management, IP security, video surveillance/CCTV, networked security products and cybersecurity. ISC East 2018 and ISC West 2019 attendees will discover the newest security products and technologies, network with colleagues and security professionals and gain valuable security industry training and knowledge.
SIA Education@ISC is the educational conference program within the ISC West and ISC East tradeshows, and the conference-program delivers high-quality information and insight into the most relevant new technologies, critical issues and strategies shaping today’s evolving security market.
“Hands-on learning lab sessions offer practitioners opportunities to learn theory while having practical interactions for tangible takeaways they can apply back on the job,” said Kimberly Roberts, SIA’s director of education. “Our workforce needs this kind of learning at industry events.”
SIA Education@ISC East session content is particularly designed for two groups: systems integrators/security installing firms and security practitioners. The program at ISC West features content from many aspects of the channel, including unmanned systems, video surveillance and business development. All educational sessions must be commercial free; presenters are prohibited from marketing products or services through the sessions.
