For the seventh year in a row, ISC West
has been recognised as one of the Fastest 50 growing tradeshows in North America by leading industry publication Tradeshow Week
. ISC West has attained this status every year that Tradeshow Week
has conducted the "Fastest 50" programme. Sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA) and organised by Reed Exhibitions, ISC West serves over 23,000 security professionals every year.
The "Fastest 50" winners are selected based on their growth in net square footage over the previous three years (2006-2008). The judging team is comprised of the editorial and research staff at Tradeshow Week. Three top prizes will be awarded in November in categories including the fastest growing trade and association show, the fastest growing consumer show, and the overall fastest growing show.
"We are particularly pleased on earning this recognition over the past three years considering some of the economic hurdles that trade events have had to overcome recently," said Ed Nichols, Industry Vice President, ISC Events. "As the only trade show in the physical security industry to obtain this recognition in 2009, we're thrilled that our customers put their confidence in our ability to deliver enhanced value, service and marketplace relevance. We want to thank our customers for their continued support for and confidence in the ISC West-SIA partnership to deliver superior customer value and growth for the industry."
