SIA creates 'Winner’s Forum' for New Product Showcase

The Security Industry Association announced this week that it has created a new "Winner's Forum" as a part of its New Product Showcase (NPS) that will be held at ISC West in March.

According to a statement, judges will present the winners of the top two NPS awards, the Judges' Choice Award and Best New Product Award, at the new Winner's Forum on March 29 at 9 a.m. Following the presentation of the awards, a Q&A session will be held with the winners.

"This is an opportunity for NPS participants and ISC West attendees to learn more about the judges who participate in the NPS, and about how new products are judged," said Jennifer Martin, chair of the SIA NPS Committee. "Winning products typically meet a need that has previously been unmet, and this is a chance for participants to look behind the curtain and see inside the judging process."

In addition, SIA will present the winners of the 2012 NPS in a featured session of the ISC West Signature Series, a series of three plenary discussions open to all expo and conference participants that explore key industry trends, emerging technologies and best practices.
