ESX revved up for Charlotte in June
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—The Electronic Security Expo is scaling up from the 2010 event, according to current ESX chair George De Marco.
“There will be over 200 exhibitors at ESX 2011 in Charlotte this June, which is a 20 percent increase over the 2010 event,” De Marco told Security Systems News. “The registration numbers are running 50 percent-plus over the same period last year. We expect to reach our projections of 2,500-3,000 total attendees.”
De Marco said this year’s show would provide strong and timely educational tracks to help attendees better position themselves for future growth.
“We have put together our most robust educational program ever, with a strong emphasis on RMR and on technology trends that are transforming and influencing the electronic security industry,” De Marco said. The goal is to provide a place for monitoring and integration companies to learn about “the latest advances in mobile apps, hosted and managed services, home automation and energy management, including alternative signal transmission,” he said.
De Marco said a trip to ESX was an essential business strategy in today’s evolving industry.
“ESX is designed to benefit the owners and executives of integration and monitoring companies, giving them insights on how to increase revenue, profits and company value,” De Marco said. “ESX will provide the information, advice, and peer and supplier connections needed to help make better decisions, in a time of industry transformation … A visit to ESX increases the probability of making all the right moves.”
ESX will take place at the Charlotte Convention Center, with association activities running from June 6-10 and the conference running from June 7-9.
