The Hanwha Techwin Million Dollar ISC West Booth

By John Honovich, Published on Apr 05, 2019

One million dollars for 2 and 3/4 days.

That is what Hanwha will pay for its ISC West 2019 exhibition.

The Million Dollar ISC West Booth

While the event is free for most attendees, the manufacturers pay heavily to fund it. Why is it so expensive? Is it worth it? Who makes most from this event?

Inside this post, we examine these questions, looking at Hanwha and other large exhibitors including Axis, Dahua, and Hikvision.
