The Electronic Security Association (ESA) has acquired full ownership of the Electronic Security Expo (ESX), the only national tradeshow designed for the pro-installed channel, ESA announced today

“While it has certainly been a tough year for in-person events, the Electronic Security Association sees the value that the Electronic Security Expo delivers each year to the pro-installed electronic security and life safety industry,” said ESA President, Jamie Vos. “As a previous co-owner of ESX, ESA has now acquired full ownership of the industry’s only national tradeshow developed by and for the pro-installed community. ESX is a place where you can feel the heartbeat of the industry and there’s never been a more appropriate driver of this than ESA.”

ESA is committed to continuing to deliver an annual industry experience, where teams from across the nation can roll up their sleeves, learn more, share more and interact more.

Dealers, integrators and monitoring professionals will have access to educational programming. Industry vendors can still expect a targeted expo floor, where conversations that focus on merchandising, installation and profit margins can be had with decision makers and influencers.

“There are a lot of passionate security professionals who rely on the content shared at ESX to develop their business strategies,” said ESX Chairman, George De Marco. “We are excited to see ESA’s plans unfold as it takes the show to the next level.”

As the industry’s largest and longest non-profit association serving the pro-installed channel, ESA will continue to use profits from ESX to fund legislative efforts, educational programming and more.
