ISC East 2020, originally scheduled for Nov. 18-19 in New York City, has been canceled due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, and continued restrictions on large events. ISC East 2021 will take place at the Javits Center on Nov. 17-18, 2021.

As a means to help connect the community and to recognize the hard work and achievements of security and public safety professionals this year, ISC East, along with SIA and ASIS NYC, will be hosting a half day ISC East virtual event on Wednesday, Nov. 18, including the prestigious ASIS NYC Person of the Year Award and curated education sessions. In addition, ISC East attendees and supporters are 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 honoree by Trade Show Executive Magazine,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC event director. “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.”

“ISC East is widely recognized 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 program as part of the ISC East virtual event on Nov. 18, 2020, and to produce an impactful ISC East next year.”
