ISC West, originally slated to take place March 23-26, 2021, has been rescheduled to July 19-21, 2021 at The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
The organizers explained they decided to postpone the event after extensive internal and external consultation and monitoring of the ongoing COVID-19 virus pandemic.
"Now more than ever, the security industry’s integrators/installers/dealers/consultants and end-user practitioners have an essential services role, with heightened responsibility for protecting companies, employees, customers and the public. The 2021 event will further accelerate the convergence of security, public safety and health tech solutions, and chart the course for expanded levels of public-private sector cooperation and results," the organizers said.
The 2021 SIA Education@ISC West program will include an extensive schedule of physical security and converged security content, while also adding in key new topics. The curriculum will include a new track on health and safety best practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including case studies and technology solutions that address employee/customer wellness and access control, business continuity, and facilities management. Plus, the 2021 event model will also offer a hybrid format – with both face-to-face conference pass and virtual conference pass options available, in order to serve the wide-reaching ISC community.
The organizers added, "Our security and public safety community by nature is very face-to-face, with physical presence and engagement being the foundation of the business, solutions and professional diligence. To ensure that ISC West is the safest environment for a live event, our Reed Exhibitions Health & Safety Task Force, along with the expert team at the Sands Expo venue, will be ensuring that all key health and safety protocols and systems are in place for hygiene and cleaning, air conditioning and ventilation, physical distancing, PPE, health tech and health services."

- Monday, July 19: Morning Keynote, Day 1 of SIA Education@ISC West, and Day 1 of the Expo
- Tuesday, July 20: Morning Keynote, Day 2 of SIA Education@ISC West, and Day 2 of the Expo
