ESX 2012 heads to Nashville for security conference

Alarm dealers and systems integrators are embracing the future with the cutting-edge ESX Show in Nashville, June 25 through 29, 2012.

This year, ESX, the official conference and exposition of the Electronic Security Association (ESA) and the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) heads back to Music City Nashville, where it launched its inaugural tradeshow several years ago. With a theme of “Tune into the Future,” ESX Chairman George De Marco said the show is designed exclusively for security integration and monitoring companies and will “help them understand and deliver what the evolving customer expects.”

“More than 50 peer-to-peer seminars will deliver strategies for growth, branding your business, attaining operational excellence and learning about new products and interactive services,” he said.

Real world education and lots of fun!

The ESX education program is approved by the ESA National Training School CEU program and fine-focuses on best practices for success. Aside from the stellar educational opportunities—which center on business development; central station operations; installation and service management, recurring monthly revenue, sales and marketing; and technology applications, there’s plenty opportunity to network with others, attend critical association planning meetings, scope out exhibitors and honor those who make it all work and have been an integral part of the security industry’s ongoing success. Don’t miss the backstage tours of the ADS central station or a local facility security tour, also on the agenda.

One of the annual highlights of the conference is the ESA Weinstock and Jackson Awards Celebration, which honor ESA’s top volunteer leader and a lifetime contributor. And let’s not forget the ESX pub crawl, and this year, what happens in Nashville should probably stay there—but you’ll want to attend to see for yourself. The EXS Keynote Luncheon features Kix Brooks, an iconic musician and half of one of the country music’s most regarded duo of Brooks and Dunn.

Most activities occur at the Nashville Convention Center and the headquarters hotels Renaissance Nashville and Sheraton Nashville. For more information, including education sessions, exhibits, sign up and registration, visit
