Live from ISC East: The Expo Is Back and Better than Ever

Peter Harlick checks in with for a report from a better-than-expected 2004 ISC East Expo

"There were several key strategic reasons why we decided to bring ISC East back to New York," said Russo. "The most important were the venue itself and our prior success. Sometimes we lose sight that the New York region has so much to offer in terms of being one of the biggest regions for security installing and corporate security professionals. We can attribute this year's success in large part to our strong partnerships and relationships with our friends at SIA, the NBFAA, state and local associations. With the help and hard work of Dale Eller, NYBFA Executive Director, this year's show has surpassed all of our goals."

The ISC East show returns to New York in 2005 for two days, Aug. 24-25.
