ESX 2020 canceled

ESX 2020 canceled

DALLAS—Knowing how important ESX is for the electronic security and life safety integration and monitoring professionals that rely on the event for best practice sharing and business advice, leadership held out hope that ESX 2020 would be a go. However, based on the well-being of our community, the leadership of ESX has decided to cancel Electronic Security Expo (ESX) 2020, originally scheduled for June 9-12 in Nashville, Tenn.

Due to challenges with finding suitable dates that work for Nashville venues and the greater industry event calendar as well as makes sense for attendees, ESX is rescheduled for June 15-18, 2021 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Ky. ESX is exploring alternatives to deliver a portion of ESX 2020 programming through virtual channels. Visit for the latest updates and news about ESX.
