ESA Becomes the Sole Owner of Electronic Security Expo
ESX had been put on in partnership between ESA and The Monitoring Association since its inception in 2008.
DALLAS — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) announces it has acquired full ownership of the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) from The Monitoring Association (TMA).
“While it has certainly been a tough year for in-person events, the Electronic Security Association sees the value that the Electronic Security Expo delivers each year to the pro-installed electronic security and life safety industry,” says ESA President Jamie Vos. “As a previous co-owner of ESX, ESA has now acquired full ownership of the industry’s only national tradeshow developed by and for the pro-installed community. ESX is a place where you can feel the heartbeat of the industry and there’s never been a more appropriate driver of this than ESA.”
The 2020 show, which would have been the 13th anniversary of ESX, was scheduled to take place in Nashville June 9-12 but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was announced a virtual event would be explored but never came to fruition.
ESA says it is committed to continuing to deliver an annual industry experience, where teams from across the nation can roll up their sleeves, learn more, share more and interact more.
The 2021 edition is currently scheduled to take place June 15-18 in Louisville, Ky. Dealers, integrators and monitoring professionals will have access to quality educational programming, driven by peers who will share real-world advice, according to an announcement.
Industry vendors can still expect a targeted expo floor, where quality conversations that focus on merchandising, installation and profit margins can be had with decision makers and influencers.
“There are a lot of passionate security professionals who rely on the content shared at ESX to develop their business strategies,” says ESX Chairman George De Marco. “We are excited to see ESA’s plans unfold as it takes the show to the next level.”
As the industry’s largest and longest non-profit association serving the pro-installed channel, ESA says it will continue to use profits from ESX to fund legislative efforts, educational programming and more.
