Kix Brooks to Deliver Keynote Address at ESX 2012
Kix Brooks of legendary duo Brooks and Dunn will be the keynote speaker for this year's Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Nashville.
The keynote address, sponsored by Security America Risk Retention Group (RRG), will take place on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 11:45 a.m. at the Nashville Convention Center, the hub of all 2012 ESX events.
The announcement, made at the Electronic Security Integrators Forum and the Electronic Security Association (ESA) Leadership Summit by ESX Chair George De Marco, was followed by a honky-tonkin' line dance flash mob, including audience members John Knox of Knox Integrated Systems, Howard Sanders of ESA, Todd Gaito of Wayne Alarm Systems and Gerrit Brusse of U.S.A Fire and Burglar Alarm.
"We're very excited to be able to give back to our industry by sponsoring the 2012 ESX Keynote Address," says Michael Keegan, President of Security America RRG.
"Our insurance program is an essential ESA member benefit that provides our insured companies with stable and affordable coverage so that they can confidently conduct their business. I am looking forward to ESX Nashville and hearing Kix Brooks share his success story with us."
An iconic half of the Brooks and Dunn duo, Brooks is no stranger to business problem solving and creative thinking. The successful country music icon and businessman plans to address the security industry with his secrets to success.
Brooks, who is now the host of the American Country Countdown, an internationally syndicated radio program, is also the founder and co-owner of Arrington Vineyards, located 25 minutes south of Nashville.
"I really enjoy what I do for a living," he said on the American Country Countdown radio show. "At the end of the day, it's all about sharing stories." And that's exactly what he'll do at ESX in Nashville.
Brooks and Dunn are responsible for more than 20 number one hits, including "Neon Moon," "My Maria," "Red Dirt Road" and "Boot Scootin' Boogie." They have sold more than 30 million albums and have won more than 80 major industry awards.
