ESX is the fastest growing event in the security industry, with exhibitor and sponsor participation for the 2014 event running 19% ahead year-to-date.
Why is ESX surging when other events are flat or shrinking?
The ESX Community. ESX focuses exclusively on the needs of security integration and monitoring companies - providing the information, advice and peer and supplier contacts that help them evolve their product and service mix and improve business practices.
Image removed by sender.ESX attracts the biggest, best and most progressive electronic security companies both to the physical event each June and virtually to webinars and e-newsletter articles.
These companies are actively evolving their product mix as more and more product categories lend themselves to the recurring revenue business model that rules in electronic security.
A decade ago only intrusion and fire alarms offered recurring monthly revenue (RMR). Now, video surveillance, access control, identification systems and non-security categories like managed networks and IT, digital signage and even facets of AV are arriving as RMR producers. The companies ESX embraces are in the midst of a once-in-a-generation conversion of their product mix.
Their evaluation extends beyond the products that enable RMR through cloud-based, hosted and managed services architectures to component-level products like cameras, door control hardware and automated light switches.
Because RMR-driven companies' business model is typically not "time and materials," they are hungry for components that are not only effective and reliable, but also highly efficient to sell, install, program, monitor and maintain.
Makers and distributors of such products and providers of support services that feed efficiencies have an awesome opportunity RIGHT NOW to earn the business of the best resourced and highest-volume integration and installation companies in America.
