Co-Located Events Bring Unmet Value to Security Industry

Nov. 8, 2011
ESA Leadership Summit

Integrators agree, the ESI Forum and ESA Leadership Summit, being held January 9 through 12 in Irving, Texas, are the next big thing in the industry. Each event offers unique value and their convenient co-location means busy integrators can get a lot done in a short amount of time.

ESI Forum: Market Insights and Business Inspiration

The Forum will offer three days of business strategizing, networking and quality vendor contact.

Its valuable general session content explores all of the latest trends and vital business information to keep integrators competitive in this quickly evolving industry. Panelists will discuss how security companies are answering new telco and cable company competitors, the emerging PERS, senior and residential markets, cutting-edge tech tools for technicians in the field and much more.

Its line up of qualified speakers will include executives from companies like ASG Security, Guardian Protection Services and Vintage Security.

But what the Forum is probably most known for is its VIP Hosted Guest option. The event will host close to 100 decision makers from high dollar volume integration companies and ESA Leadership. These guests will get access to boardroom presentations and prescheduled one-on-one meetings with the Forum’s sponsors.

The Forum will also offer a “paid conferee” option, allowing more executives from integration and monitoring companies the opportunity to take advantage of the event’s programming, like the popular roundtable brainstorming sessions and its industry thought-leading speakers.

“I learned a considerable amount about new industry trends and practices, which we incorporated back at the office,” said Bob Ryan, 2011 Hosted Guest and Senior vice president of Sales and Marketing, ASG Security. “I had a great time networking with my peers at social events and the quality time I spent with vendors was unbeatable.”

“I was able to accomplish a lot in a little amount of time and with my busy schedule. I really value that,” Ryan continued.
