ISC Solutions will be merging with Securing New Ground in 2011, bringing both events together to form Security Week in New York City Nov. 1-4.

Securing New Ground, Security 500, ISC Solutions and the Tri-Association Awards Dinner will, for the first time, be planned together.

“Security Week will provide valuable content related to all aspects of the security industry,” said Richard Chace, CEO of the Security Industry Association (SIA), the sole sponsor of ISC Solutions, the new owner of Securing New Ground, a partner in Security 500 and a co-presenter of the Tri-Association Awards Dinner.

“Investors, manufacturers, distributors, end-users and others will find the information and networking opportunities that they need at these events.”

Security Week will begin on Tuesday, Nov. 1, and Wednesday, Nov. 2, at the Roosevelt Hotel with Securing New Ground, a conference that brings together executives, investors and users of security technology.


“As the only conference that is focused on the business of security, Securing New Ground will start Security Week by focusing on some of the most basic and critical challenges for any company – those related to business growth, industry financing and market trends,” said Sandra Jones, principal consultant at Sandra Jones and Company, the conference founder. “For 15 years, Securing New Ground has offered unique financial information and the best networking in the industry for top executives and investors in the security industry. As part of Security Week, SNG will be able to provide even more value in the future.”

Security 500, an executive conference on managing and measuring the value of the security function within organizations, and the Security 500 Recognition Dinner are also scheduled for Wednesday at the Roosevelt Hotel.

On Thursday, Nov. 3, and Friday, Nov. 4, ISC Solutions will take place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

“The new model for ISC Solutions – one that focuses on security applications and making meaningful connections between manufacturers and end-users – fits in perfectly with Security Week,” said Ed Several, group vice-president and general manager with Reed Exhibitions, the show’s producer. “These four days in New York will offer security professionals unprecedented opportunities to gather information, network and learn about new business possibilities.”

ISC Solutions had previously been known as ISC East, but was renamed in 2010 at the ISC West show in Las Vegas to focus on more end user applications and vertical markets.

On Thursday night, the Tri-Association Awards Dinner, an event held to honour those who have made outstanding contributions to the security industry, will be held at The Lighthouse on Chelsea Pier 61.
