ESX is different from all other industry conferences and shows because it’s owned by the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and Electronic Security Association (ESA). The revenue generated by the conference will remain within the industry to be used for programming, education, legislative activities and public relations to benefit your company.
Donning glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces, ESXers join locals for a night on the town in what’s become one of ESX’s signature events. The 2013 Crawl will tour Nashville's famed Lower Broadway.
“Down time, casual connection and plain old fun has always been a part of the ESX concept,” says John Knox, president of Knox Integrated Systems, president of ESA and unofficial social chair of ESX. “It sounds silly, but it’s so important to provide a way for people to connect on a personal level away from the booths and the product displays, away from the closed shirt collars and suit coats. The ESX Crawl creates the opportunity for those connections and creates a lot of fun memories in the process.”
What inanimate or animate object will be the target of this year’s glow-in-the-dark ring toss? What unexpected twist in the proceedings or celebrity sighting will pop up this year? Who will you make a new connection with during the festivities that will help you improve your business or develop professionally? Join the Crawl and find out!
Ready for the Crawl? Here's where we'll be headed ...
THE STAGE ON BROADWAY is a little bit Texas and a whole lotta Nashville. It’s Downtown’s hottest, edgiest new place to party hard with all your rowdy friends. See and be seen at The STAGE. Live country music and never a cover charge, lets you boot scoot all night long on the big dance floor.
Check out the huge mural on the wall and the original oil painting of The Highwaymen that hangs over the front door. This painting once belonged to Waylon Jennings and hung in his Nashville home.
HONKY TONK CENTRAL
At Honky Tonk Central live music flows onto the street from all three floors of the 9,400-square-foot building’s balconies. Here, bartenders serve beer from a guitar-shaped bar on the third floor and a piano-shaped bar on the second floor.
Patrons make use of the balconies, watching passersby below, and newly opened VIP areas.
You might recognize Tequila Cowboy from its feature on the hit ABC show “Nashville.” Tequila Cowboy offers an exciting experience with dining and a revved up nightlife. This is your one stop party when you come to Nashville with five venues under one rock’n rooftop. The 25,000 square foot facility also includes Rock Bar, which features a live stage that is accompanied by a full band nightly
Karma Lounge hosts a top 40-dance club that has a state of the art sound system and light show. Tequila Cowboy’s game room is the perfect spot to shoot pool and watch the big game. And this is the only spot on Broadway with a mechanical bull.
If you want to be the star on Broadway, make sure to go to Wanna B’s Karaoke Bar and pick from its 250,000-song catalog.
