ISC East Cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy

Security Expo was to begin Oct. 30 in New York City but state of emergency from Hurricane Sandy forces cancellation.

Julie Jacobson · October 27, 2012

ISC East, the international security conference sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), has been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, the storm wreaking havoc in the Northeast.

ISC was to be held Oct. 30 - 31 at the Javits Center in New York City. Roughly 200 exhibitors had signed up for the event, which usually draws more than 2,000 security dealers.

The message on the ISC East home page reads:


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, we have made a decision to POSTPONE ISC East. We will work with our exhibitors, attendees and the Javits Center to try to establish an appropriate future date for the Show.

We hope that you all remain safe during this unprecedented storm. If I can personally assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me at eseveral@reedexpo.com and I will respond as conditions allow.

Updates will be provided in 4 ways:

—e-mail communications (we will send you e-mails as regularly as possible)
—online via the website
—text message notifications - to sign-up for text message notifications, please text ISCEAST to 75572
—24 hour phone message at (800) 840-5602
