LAS VEGAS — ISC West, held April 9-12 at The Venetian Convention and Expo Center, produced by RX with the Security Industry Association (SIA) as a Premier Sponsor, grew by 20,000 net square feet this year.  

The annual event welcomed more than 29,000 industry professionals (an increase of more than 2,000 from 2023), and 750 exhibitors, approximately 200 more than last year.  

“It’s crucial that we keep pace with all the new products and companies emerging in the industry. With that in mind, we’re always looking to expand our exhibitor base,” Mary Beth Shaughnessy, Event Vice President, ISC Security Events, RX, said.  

“We at ISC West are always working to enhance the customer experience by offering both fan-favorite and brand-new programming each year… Plus, professionals across the industry are excited to return to in-person events post-pandemic. All of this created the perfect storm to help drive up our 2024 numbers!”  

New Experiences and Educational Opportunities  

Wavelynx sponsored the first-ever ISC West Concert on April 10, and the Grammy-winning rock group The Wallflowers performed on the show’s Main Stage, providing a memorable networking experience. 

A new AI Discovery Zone on the show floor used interactive displays and demonstrations to showcase how the technology could revolutionize security. According to Shaughnessy, ISC West plans to expand their AI offerings in the future.

Additionally, a new SIA Education@ISC West Passport program facilitated easier access to educational programming for industry professionals, providing three full days of education, entrance to the show’s exhibit hall and more.  

Securing Net Zero  

ISC West 2024 was RX’s first U.S. event to launch a multi-year strategy aligned with its pledge to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040, and introduced a sustainability guide for exhibitors, waste stream receptacles, recyclable cutlery at all retail concession outlets, hand sorting operations and a program repurposing supplies from exhibitor booths.  

As we continue to work toward our goal of becoming a zero-waste event, we look forward to rethinking how event facilitators, exhibitors and attendees can all help minimize environmental impact and contribute to a sustainable future,” Shaughnessy said.  

ISC West 2025  

The next ISC West is scheduled for April 1-4, 2025, at The Venetian, and Shaughnessy expects continued growth: “We already have exhibitors expressing interest in participating next year, and it’s only been a few weeks since the event wrapped! Our industry is excited to return to in-person events now that we’re past the pandemic — especially as we aim to keep up with the ever-evolving technology and solutions in the field.” 

ISC West is part of the Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 Class of 2023, and is being honored for their impressive growth at TSE’s 2024 Fastest 50 Awards and Summit, where Shaughnessy is featured as an Education Summit panelist. Learn more
