ESX = Quality Time With Passionate Professionals

The ESX Community is a group of passionate professionals who share, learn and brainstorm each year to elevate their game both personally and professionally. This experience and network can mean so much more than an event a few days out of the year, it can become your group of peers for sharing advice, best practices, and trends throughout the year.

Networking PhotoTo create, support and energize this community, ESX focuses on quality engagements and creative ways to interact and break the ice.

Nearly 80% of survey respondents said they decided to attend ESX to network with colleagues.

“ESX is the best way in the industry to network with peers to grow your business,” Jamie Vos, General Manager, Security Solutions NW.

ESX kicked off with the event Opening Celebration held at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Industry leaders gathered to mix and mingle with new and old industry friends, together commemorating the event’s 10th year.

The Opening Celebration was sponsored by SkyBell. On Wednesday night, ESX attendees saddled up for a night down on Nashville’s famed Lower Broadway for its Pub Crawl.

Networking PhotoExperiences were shared, friends and colleagues were able to catch up, and new friendships were formed throughout this casual networking opportunity amongst the honky-tonks. This year’s crawl made stops at Tin Roof, The Valentine, and The Stage and was sponsored by: Security Central, JLM Wholesale and SureView Systems.

The co-located SDM 100 Gala brought back the 70’s, with a disco-themed event. The event honored and celebrated an incredible group of leading security executives from the nation’s largest installing and monitoring companies ranked on the SDM 100 Report.
