Influx of Teams Finalizing ESX Registrations by May 17 Pricing Deadline

Influx of Teams Finalizing ESX Registrations by May 17 Pricing DeadlineHotel room blocks are selling out and seats are filling for limited capacity events as security integration and monitoring companies from across the country are rushing to register their teams while ESX’s discounted rates still apply. All early registration prices for the event, being held June 17-21 in Nashville, TN will expire at midnight on May 17.

Owners and executive management recognize the security industry's need to train staff for new skills required to meet the demand of selling, installing, servicing and monitoring security systems with enhanced lifestyle features for the residential market. Integrators are also seeking education to help them tackle new opportunities in commercial markets. Hosted and managed services, coupled with challenging networked security architectures, require a new approach to train employees for next-gen products and services.

The entry of new players from the telecommunications, cable and IT industries may also be a factor as security integration and monitoring companies large and small register for ESX to re-examine and sharpen their business models, tune-up their business processes and take advantage of the mass marketing hype that’s been built around new offerings.

"There's so much offered at this show that one person couldn't possibly get to everything," said Ed Bonifas, vice president, Alarm Detection Systems. "Each team member takes responsibility for an idea and that person attends seminars and meets with vendors on the show floor. When we get back to the office, we meet and report on our findings."

ESX, the only major, national trade show designed exclusively for security integration and monitoring teams, has targeted education sessions, inspirational experiences and priceless networking opportunities for every job function in these companies. Central station operators, salespeople, marketing personnel, installation managers, senior management, owners and more will find specific courses and events that will inspire, motivate and educate.

Some of the leading companies bringing their teams to ESX include:

  • Acadian Monitoring Services from Lafayette, LA
  • Alarm Detection Systems from Aurora, IL
  • Capital Fire and Security from Madison WI
  • Doyle Security Systems from Rochester, NY
  • EPS Security from Grand Rapids, MI
  • Select Security from Lancaster, PA
  • Unique Security Systems from Los Angeles, CA
  • Vector Security from Warrendale, PA
  • Vivint from Provo, UT

Data confirms that bringing teams to industry events, such as ESX, has a meaningful effect on day-to-day business, it has shown to increase morale, employee motivation and improve communication.

  • 94% of security professionals agree that attending industry events with colleagues encourages the team to follow-through on ideas and put the information collected to good use for the company; and
  • 95% of security professionals agree that attending industry events with colleagues encourages the team to plan and strategize together.

The right employee training and development, at the right time, will provide big payoffs for an employer, increasing productivity, knowledge, loyalty and contribution.

And, if ESX registration is a measure, it seems that security companies big and small are investing in the crucial, ongoing development of their employees to improve retention and success as the industry evolves.

"We're bringing a group from Vivint in order to take advantage of every opportunity at ESX, from the education sessions to the networking events," said Norm Nelson, director, central station, Vivint. "We're looking forward to ESX. We know it's going to help everyone we bring."

“We’re not a big company,” said David Koenig, a partner of Capital Fire and Security of Madison, WI. “Yet, we sent five employees from our team last year and are planning the same for this year. At ESX, we get every functional area of our company up-to-speed on trends and opportunities for growth and improvement in a very efficient way. On top of that, the team bonding and camaraderie the trip generates is invaluable!”

ESX provides additional discounts for teams. Register three or more employees for paid registration items and receive a 10% team discount. The exclusive discount can be secured by contacting Katie Westerduin at or 508-618-7856.
