What do you do for a living? If you're an end user, go to ASIS. If you're an integrator or distributor, go to ISC East.
I am an end user and I'm going to ISC west next year, but having never been to ISC East I didn't know if it was worth the investment over ASIS. Thanks for the input Ari.
ASIS is a national show and ISC is very regional and much smaller. I wouldn't go to ISC East unless I was within driving distance.
The two shows really can't be compared.
If ISC East was called anything else that didn't try to associate it with the largest security tradeshow in North America nobody would even pay it any mind, it would be considered just another random regional show.
ISC East contains a very small subset of the overall companies and products in the security industry. ASIS is hardly complete (it too has been waning), but ASIS is at least more representative overall.
Well I'm sold ASIS it is. Thanks for all the input!
