April is finally here which means ISC West, the largest converged security event is near. Over 30,000 security professionals will be arriving in Las Vegas to see the latest in comprehensive security innovations, learn from other industry professionals, and network with their peers.

Beyond the vast collection of security brainpower that will be gathering for an action-packed 4 days, there are also over 1,000 exhibitors and products that will be available for hands-on demonstrations and lively discussion.

Don’t let the sheer scope of the show overwhelm you. Smarter Security has been an exhibitor at ISC West for more than 20 years. Having the perspective of the last 20+ years, we have 5 things you’ll want to make sure are on your agenda to cover during your time in Las Vegas:

  1. Endless Education Opportunities
    Furthering your security knowledge at ISC West comes in many shapes and formats at ISC West. There are over 85 sessions covering a wide spectrum of topics from every facet of the security industry including cybersecurity, intelligent physical security, IoT and beyond as well as hands-on workshops to make learning more practical. The most valuable asset to these educational opportunities is the ability to earn continuing education credits like AEU, CPE, and CPD to further your professional development. This year you can customize your experience. Simply answer a few questions and the SIA @ Education team provides a personalized itinerary with recommended education sessions.

  2. Get Connected
    Break out of your comfort zone and meet someone new. ISC West offers a wide variety of networking breakfasts, receptions and after-hours events to facilitate multiple ways for you to connect to like-minded professionals, share best practices and of course, a war story or two. With 30,000 people uniting in the name of security, there’s certain to be a handful that you can connect with.

  3. Experience the Expo
    ISC West is unique in the fact that the event features not just one exhibit hall, but 5 different expositions. The Expo is the natural gathering ground for attendees looking to get a first-hand experience with physical and IT security innovations and discover new approaches to building a holistic security strategy to mitigate new and emerging cyber threats in today’s environments. Extending physical security should also be mindful of access control technologies, like ReconaSense offering the industry’s only risk-adaptive, intelligent access control, which can be found in the Connected Security Expo at booth #33091.

  4. Come Prepared with Your Questions
    Chances are, you probably have a consistent blinking light on your voicemail inbox or a never-ending stream of requests to set up a meeting to discuss your technology needs. Gathering at ISC West gives you the opportunity to bring the key projects that are important to you and your team to the table and ask questions directly to vendors and providers who are also in attendance to get an answer without an endless game of phone tag.

  5. Discover Smarter Entrance Control
    We’re pretty partial to the critical role that robust entrance controls play in an overall physical security strategy. With that in mind, visit Smarter Security in booth #21117 to get a hands-on demonstration of Fastlane® optical turnstiles and Door Detectives®. You’ll see how we’re integrating the latest in Bluetooth readers, cameras, biometric readers and more. Whether you’re building upon your physical strategy and evaluating turnstiles for the first time, or considering a replacement of your existing equipment, a visit to Smarter Security’s booth featuring Fastlane turnstiles will open your eyes to how securely and efficiently your lobby could operate.

Make Every Entrance Smarter
Seeing is believing. If lobby security, tailgate prevention, faster turnstiles, and intelligent entrance control are priorities for you at ISC West, book a meeting with a member of the Smarter Security team at a time that’s convenient for you.
