Registration is open for the 2015 Electronic Security Expo (ESX), scheduled to be held June 23–26, at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Sponsored by Security America Risk Retention Group, this year’s keynote speaker will be Major General (Ret.) James “Greg” Champion. At the ESX opening keynote luncheon, he will offer his advice on motivating people — even in the most extreme circumstances.

The closing keynote speaker, sponsored by SDM, will be principal of ITR Economics, Alan Beaulieu, who will share his insights into the economy and help attendees answer that big question: Is this the right time to pursue that growth opportunity?

SDMwill host its 10th annual SDM 100 Gala the evening of June 25, in conjunction with ESA and CSAA’s Electronic Security Expo (ESX). This social event honors and celebrates an incredible group of leading security executives from the nation’s largest installing and monitoring companies ranked on the SDM 100.

SDM will also sponsor the Central Station Alarm Association’s Central Station Excellence Awards during ESX. The Excellence Awards recognize any FM Global, Intertek/ETL or UL-listed central station and outstanding personnel who perform in the highest professional manner, thereby making a significant contribution to the betterment of the alarm industry and the alarm profession while demonstrating exceptional service to their customers and community.
