Can you believe it? The 2017 Electronic Security Expo (ESX) marks the 10th annual event. For those who have attended we celebrate the event’s success with you. If you have not attended yet, ESX 2017 looks forward to welcoming you for the first time.

As the only national tradeshow designed solely for security integration and monitoring centers, ESX delivers an event where all of the content, networking and technology showcased on the show floor is geared exclusively for the channel.  

The Maximize Your Monitoring Center track within the ESX conference program is designed specifically for you. Seven seminars will be offered in this track at the 2017 event, each of which zero in on next-generation monitoring technologies, services and management techniques that deliver meaningful takeaways that can be implemented into your monitoring center upon your return.

CSAA will also present its monitoring center excellence awards and announces the Monitoring Center of the Year. Not only are there customized solutions for your needs, but you will be able to spend quality time in a productive environment that is easy to navigate.

We are thrilled to announce that in honor of our 10th annual event we have completely revamped the registration packages. In years past, a premium pass to ESX that provided the attendee access to every seminar, main stage event, the show floor and all of the ESX networking events cost up to $895; now costs only $199. We want to ensure that the pricing is not an obstacle for the industry to come together and make ESX 2017 the biggest yet.
