Planning underway for ISC West 2018

Just over a month from now the Security Systems News team will be making our way to Las Vegas for this year’s ISC West Conference. That means that planning has certainly begun for exhibit floor visits and other commitments at the show.

My primary focus in the security space is the world of alarm monitoring. So, if you are a monitoring center, or are related to that side of the industry, and would like to meet up at the show, feel free to email me at sives@securitysystemsnews.com. It would be great if you’d also tell me a bit about what your company is planning for the show this year.

Though, I’m interested in many other areas of security as well. If you don’t fit in the above category, feel free to email me just the same. Be sure to include an overview of your company and what you'll be discussing at the show.

We've also got this month's SSN News Poll asking about companies' plans for the show. Are you planning to attend ISC West 2018? ISC West hosts several expos during the show—which interests you? How many people is your company sending to the show? Feel free to share your thoughts here

Whether we've spoken at each ISC West since my first in 2015, or if we haven't yet met, I hope to see you in Las Vegas come mid-April.

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Security Systems News’ 2018 TechSec Solutions conference is coming up—Feb 26 and 27, down in Delray Beach, Fla., at the Delray Beach Marriott—and now we’re extending a new offer to attend at a lower registration rate.

Last week, our Early Bird registration rate ended. However, we are offering another chance to get $100 off of the conference registration, if you use the promo code EML100 (which can’t be combined with other offers). To register, see the entire educational program or view more information on the conference, visit www.TechSecSolutions.com.

We’re preparing a great line up of speakers and panels to address some of the most relevant security topics today, including AI, how IT impacts the integrator, robots and the next technologies for access control.

In addition to the line-up of educational sessions, we’re excited to have two great keynote speakers. On Day One, Jim Dearing, senior analyst, Security & Building Technologies for the research firm IHS Markit, will present data on some of the trends impacting the industry. On Day Two, Hart Brown, EVP and COO of Firestorm Solutions LLC, will take a look at cybersecurity and the risks involved.

Another feature of the conference that we look forward to each year is the poolside networking reception where we honor the most recent class of Security Systems News’ “20 under 40” award winners. This is a unique opportunity to meet some up-and-coming professionals in both the end user and integrator arenas.

We hope to see you there!
