Following a State of Emergency being issued for New York City, Security Week in NYC has been postponed until further notice out of concern for attendees’ safety. This includes ISC East, SIA’s Securing New Ground and the Security 500 event.
ISC East (originally set for October 30-31) sent an alert through email Saturday afternoon which stated the following:
Due to the State of Emergency declared by the Governor of the State of New York and the clear impact and potential danger presented by Hurricane Sandy, ISC Events has decided to postpone ISC East. The ISC Team is working with exhibitors, attendees and the Javits Center to try to establish an appropriate future date for the show. Updated information can be found at www.isceast.com.
The Security Industry Association (SIA) followed Monday morning with its own postponement:
As you know, the Security Industry Association has been closely monitoring the developing weather situation in New York City. After consulting with the venue and our event partners, SIA has decided to postpone the Securing New Ground conference out of concern for the safety of attendees.
We will notify registered attendees when new dates are chosen for the event and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Security 500 event has also been postponed as of this morning. We will work to reschedule as effectively as possible.
For all of our readers in the path of Hurricane Sandy – stay tuned, and stay safe.
