The ESA Leadership Summit — the strategically efficient annual event for company leaders in the electronic security and life safety industry — has announced it will take the summit experience virtual in 2020 as ESA Leadership Summit Stay Connected.

The virtual event will be held Sept 29 – Oct 1, connecting leaders with the content and contacts they need to thrive amidst uncertainty. The summit will still deliver top-notch education, self-selected one-on-one meetings with vendors and purposeful networking events.

“Our ESA Members are continuing to drive value to their customers, evolving with safety standards and enriching their services,” says Merlin Guilbeau, CEO of the Electronic Security Association. “We can’t imagine a year without delivering the valuable content and connections that help them do this.”

The virtual #ProSecurity event will deliver all the components the industry has come to love about the one-on-one meeting event, driving premier content to the industry’s leaders in an innovative and responsible way.

“Our world today is seeing a digital transformation and it is incumbent on us to evolve along with it,” says Guilbeau. “I’m working with our team to accelerate and further deliver on a digitally enhanced experience for our industry. We’re taking our sessions, networking events and one-on-one meeting experience to an engaging and interactive virtual platform.”

From Sept 29 – Oct 1, the Stay Connected virtual version of the ESA Leadership Summit event will deliver presentations and workshops from The Ritz Carlton’s customer experience experts, sales leadership experts and published author of “Leadership Isn’t for Cowards,” Mike Staver.

The Electronic Security association will also deliver its annual Weinstock and Jackson award presentations on Wednesday, Sept. 30 and will play host to an interactive trivia night on Tuesday, Sept 29.

In addition to the networking, presentations and one-on-one meetings with vendors, leaders from integration and monitoring companies will have the opportunity to watch 15-minute Tech and Service Lightning Presentations from the industry’s leading vendors. This is yet another avenue the summit provides leaders to stay abreast of the latest services that could help them deliver value to customers.

“This is what our industry does. We don’t give up. We adapt,” says Guilbeau.
