ESX switches tradeshow producers

May 21, 2014 — AE Ventures, an event organizer and digital media and marketing company, will conclude its run as show producer of the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) with the 2014 event in Nashville, TN.

Alarm Industry Expo (AIE), an entity jointly owned and operated by Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and Electronic Security Association (ESA), has contracted with Tradeshow Logic of Marietta, GA to produce ESX 2015 in Baltimore, MD next June. The two event organizers have already begun the transition process.

The change provides AE Ventures with an opportunity to focus on newer events and digital media such as its TecHome Builder Summit, TecHome Builder LUX and as well as developing a new marketing services business for clients in the installed technology industries.

ESX will have a fresh set of eyes and powerful event management capabilities in Tradeshow Logic to leverage the brand and grow ESX in the coming years.

“We want to thank AE Ventures for their entrepreneurial passion, thoughtful approach and exceptionally hard work in developing ESX since its inception in 2008,” said ESX Chair, George De Marco. “Because of AE Ventures’ focused efforts and teamwork with the association partners, ESX is in a strong position to continue growing the show and delivering a brand that is meaningful and relevant to security professionals.”

“We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to work with CSAA, ESA and thousands of great exhibitors and attendees on ESX. During a very tough economic cycle, we launched an industry trade show, successfully building and growing it into a vibrant brand that is recognized industry-wide,” said AE Ventures President, John Galante. “We wish ESX continuing success, while our team turns to exciting new opportunities in the homebuilder/homebuyer markets and in marketing services.”
