Should option #2 of the poll actually be Cancel 2021 / Run in 2022?

Earlier this year we renamed our internal Slack channel regarding the show from ISCWest to ISCWhen. I was just about to rename it back, but I think I'm going to leave it as-is for now.

I'm kind of expecting the show to wind up falling on the 32nd of Neverary.

Maybe they can move the show to evening hours and visitors can spend the days in air conditioned rooms and huge swimming pools.

For me I assume 90% effective vaccine has been widely deployed by this time so I would be ok to attend this.

I do hope they have it in July

Yes it is hot in the summer in Las Vegas. Amazing that hotels sell out in the summer in Vegas and people take vacatins. I am in the age bracket to fear covid and I have worked and traveled and made sales calls all thru this epidemic. Crossed state lines, and along with 50 other people did a walk thru of a large city near Dallas 10 days ago.

I am not staying at home and would like the show to go forward. Yes I wear a mask and most part, keep 6 feet away but not always because some others dont.

The states I cover, I expect many will attend. Will it be as full as before COVID, I doubt it but you cant live your live in a bubble.

I am ready to go to Vegas.

How hot is Vegas in July? 104.2°FJuly is the warmest month in Las Vegas, with an average high-temperature of 104.2°F (40.1°C) and an average low-temperature of 81°F (27.2°C). I will pass, even if you stay inside @ the Venetian/Palazzo and never had to go outside its FRIGGIN HOT!

average high-temperature of 104.2°F (40.1°C)

Kevin, you may be underestimating how bad the exact dates are. The show is scheduled for July 19 - 21, below is the actual temperatures for those 3 days this year:

Highs of 108 - 116 degrees!

If there's a vaccine by then, count me in. If no vaccine, count me out.

vaccine by then

One interesting general question is how widely the vaccine is distributed by March, July, September, etc. Not an expert in vaccine distribution but enough sources agree that manufacturing, distributing, and applying the vaccine will take quite some time. For sure, if you personally are vaccinated by that time, it makes sense but I genuinely wonder what percentage of the population is vaccinated by then.

And, more specifically to ISC West, how many Asia or European exhibitors exhibit next July?

the efficacy of the vaccine also comes to mind. how do we know it wont turn people into zombies ?

I've seen a few good movies that started that way

Yes, related to that is the discussion of how many people will want to get the vaccine right away. Surely, some will rush to it, but others, worried about side effects, may wait.

Again, not an expert in this area, but the general consensus I've read is that the short term limitation is limited supply of the vaccine, not a shortage of demand to take it.

What sounds more appealing to attend, ISCWest in Vegas during Summer or GSX in Orlando during late September? This is presumably going to be a question raised to a majority of the attendees.

Many of us have depended on these shows for years to help us get more exposure, close more deals, meet with more of our integrators, build or continue to build relationships . "Face to face works." Plus seeing a product helps make a decision and gains excitement.

The Webinars being hosted by others instead of ISC West, ASIS, trade shows, haven';t brought me any new business. An inquiry or 2, yes but "Show me the money", as was said in Jerry Maguire".

Today we have a new way of doing business due to COVID,, holding more training and product webinars but again, " FACE TO FACE BUILDS RELATIONSHIPS"

So am I going to be there, YOU BET!

I saw someone say in past write up," it will be hotter "like that will drive down attendance, "SO WHAT"Most people spend their time inside where the AC works great, around a pool, or going from point A to B.

COUNT ME IN AND DO I EXPECT LOWER ATTENDANCE, PROBABLY, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN ONE TO HIDE IN A BUNKER.

"What counts is "building revenue".
