ESA Leadership Summit to be held at Dallas Cowboys Headquarters Oct. 4-7

The Electronic Security Association will hold their annual Leadership Summit in-person at the Omni Frisco, at the Dallas Cowboys Worldwide Headquarters, October 4-7.

This executive-level conference is for leaders who strive for more. Hundreds of executives from the electronic security and life safety industry — focused on growth — are set to gather this fall to network, learn keys to success from other industries, and develop their ability to motivate and engage employees. This is where the industry’s brightest minds take their teams to the next level.

This education and networking opportunity has been shown to ignite real growth.

“This event gets you around your peers — people making decisions and motivating employees each day in their companies. Each year, I take advice back to our office to make improvements,” says a past attendee.

Leaders will pre-schedule one-on-one meetings, share best practices, collaborate and get expert advice from pro's inside and outside of our industry.
