You’re More than a Badge Scan: Let’s Rethink Events

March 8, 2022 by ESX 2023

ESX is about more than badge scans. It is about quality conversations, problem-solving, and bringing the industry together to move it forward. When asked “Did you have quality conversations at ESX?” Attendee survey responses were clear…

YES MANY, MANY TIMES OVER! Had several great conversations relating to market trends and sales strategies” says one ESX Attendee

The Electronic Security Expo (ESX) is quickly becoming the “UNevent,” redefining the traditional purpose of industry shows within the electronic security and life safety channel. With a mission to bring leaders together to learn more, share more and interact more, this year’s event held in Fort Worth will be just that. ESX 2022 is #SecurityConnected, immersing dedicated security professionals in a niche pro-installed environment, where they are provided actionable ideas, strategies, and collaboration opportunities to move the industry forward. It’s a more modern take on the traditional expo, where education and advice take the lead over sales pitches. See the ESX lineup of educational sessions, here.

After attending ESX, attendee Jonathan Schweiger, CEO of SmartTek Systems said the following — “I’ve been in the security industry for a little over 30 years now. I learned more in the past two days than I have since returning to the industry two years ago, — This may have been my first ESX, but it will not be my last! —

“While ISC has its purpose — ESX’s purpose is completely different. Aside from it being more intimate, it pulls the industry together — to work collaboratively in a positive, productive way by focusing on solutions, not staying stuck in the problem.”

The event — owned by Electronic Security Association — has invested significant resources in ensuring quality education is delivered at registration prices that allow integration and monitoring companies of all sizes to bring their leadership teams — elevating the industry as a whole. “ESX proved to be the most valuable industry event for our company’s leadership team. The program, setting, and networking activities were amazing,” says Pat Sparrow, Director of Business Development, Telsco Security. 

At ESX 2022, you won’t just hear rattled off product features. Come prepared to tap exhibitors for advice on marketing, sales, installation training, merchandising and more. Since ESX is open exclusively to electronic security and life safety professionals, exhibitors are able to better target their conversations —it’s a more focused experience for everyone.
