November 29, 2017

ISC East 2017 concluded Thursday, November 16, after a productive two days which brought together over 7,000 prominent security industry professionals to learn, network and conduct business at the Javits Center in New York City.

New York, NY – November 29, 2017 – ISC East, sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), once again saw great success this year with over 240 exhibiting companies and over 7,000 high-profile security professionals attending the Show. Featuring 75 new brands and the largest exhibition floor in recent years, ISC East covered Video Surveillance, Access Control, Public Security, Biometrics, Security Distribution, Smart Home, IoT, Unmanned Security and more, and maintained its position as the premier converged security event in the Northeast for physical, IT and IoT security.

Industry Vice President Sherida Sessa commented, “We are very excited that ISC East has seen a 14% growth in exhibit space in 2017, keeping pace with the steady growth we’ve seen over the last two years. This year’s event included 75 new exhibitors, approximately 20% more than last year. Many of these companies represented newly added product categories – unmanned vehicles & robotics, biometrics, connected home, IoT and network security, as well as several others – ensuring that ISC East continues to bring new content to the industry.”

Jeff Zajic at, a new robotics exhibitor at ISC East, called the show “fantastic” and a “must go to event.” Jeff explained, “We had over 5,000 visitor views for our booth with excellent quality of traffic from solo consultants to multinationals. Very engaging with lots of interest and excitement.”

This year, ISC East kicked off with its signature Grand Opening Ceremony featuring the NYPD Emerald Society Pipes & Drums. The ceremony commenced two days of networking opportunities and special events, including celebrity appearances from former NY Giants Running Backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs, a Featured Product Showcase with 30+ product submissions, the famous Crack the Tap cocktail reception, and a new roundtable discussion on event security in light of recent world-wide events.

“As the proud sponsor of ISC East, the Security Industry Association is particularly enthused about the growth of the tradeshow floor, the introduction of new vendors and technologies, and the expansion of the educational program that helps to inform and elevate our industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “The show’s continued growth also reflects the value that the SIA members find in ISC Events and in the strong northeastern U.S. market, and we congratulate the ISC Events team on another success.”

The SIA Education@ISC program supported 30+ hours of free education sessions, a high-profile Keynote Speaker, free exhibitor product trainings, the returning Tech Tank @ ISC East and the newest addition of four Hands On Workshops that were designed to provide cutting-edge information and valuable insights on the most current business trends, technologies and new developments in security. This year’s Keynote session also featured an informative conversation with Group Vice President Will Wise and Ray Kelly, Former Commissioner of the NYPD. The two discussed Kelly’s development of the NYPD during the time immediately following 9/11, and provided insights into today’s most pressing public safety and cyber threats, and how to protect against them.

Will Wise, ISC Group Vice President, commented: “We’re delighted to have received such positive feedback immediately following ISC East. Ultimately, our goal is to create the very best face-to-face platform for doing business in the Northeast, and to have high quality brands and security industry professionals attending. We’re bullish about the continued opportunity to expand the event, including our just announced Unmanned Security & Safety Expo NY, co-located with ISC East in 2018.”

All around the Javits Center, ISC East saw ground-breaking products and solutions, forward-thinking educational opportunities and exciting networking events; there was something for everyone in security.

As ISC East comes to a close, the ISC portfolio of events continue to advance the industry with ISC West, Unmanned Security & Safety Expo, and Connected Security Expo taking place April 11-13, 2018 in Las Vegas. To pre-register to attend, visit
