From George Gunning: ESX to Realize it's Full Potential

Prior to my service as President of ESA (NBFAA) — and continuing into my presidency — I made developing a trade show that our association owned and directed my top priority.

We worked hard to forge a relationship with TMA (CSAA) to create a stronger base for the event, and brought together a professional team and a management company that knew our industry and the event business well enough to help us create a great event.

We also added top flight volunteers like George De Marco, John Lombardi, Ed Bonifas, Pam Petrow, Mike Miller, Mel Mahler, Bud Wulforst, John Murphy, John Knox, Marshall Marinace, Pat Egan, Ralph Sevinor and John Brady to assist with the planning. We all set ourselves to the year-round tasks of selling, promoting and recruiting excellent presenters on the most crucial business and technical topics.

Ten years later, we have turned that dream of a great industry show into a reality in the form of ESX.

ESX offers the best education program (just for us), fun and interesting social events, the industry’s best companies attending to network and share, and a big trade show floor for companies that are in the business of installing, integrating and monitoring life/safety and security systems — you know that old burg and fire system beside the new RMR systems.

The only thing standing in the way of us taking this event to the very top of the industry is YOU!

We need you to use the product we designed just for you.

We need you to come and connect with people and learn ideas that will help you grow and improve your business!

We need you to register and get your travel plans in place today.

With your participation, ESX can achieve its full potential as an event that helps move the industry forward.
