Event to be co-located with newly titled Electronic Security Integrators Forum
March 29, 2011 – Following its successful 2011 Leadership Summit, ESA has finalized details for the 2012 event. Next year’s Leadership Summit will feature its traditional association meetings and leadership programming as delivered in years past. The hosted guest portion of the event, introduced in 2011, will be newly titled the Electronic Security Integrators Forum (ESI Forum). The ESI Forum will be co-located with the ESA Leadership Summit.
Slated to be held in January in Dallas, TX, exact dates and location for the two events will be announced in April. Here’s what you can expect for 2012:
ESA LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
Association leadership development
Vendor showcase area
Hosted buyer event
Integrator business seminars
Interactive roundtable sessions
Vendor showcase area
“ESA is excited to bring back the traditional ESA Leadership Summit, while still offering the hosted guest and integrator seminar elements now flying under the ESI Forum name,” said Dom D’Ascoli, ESA President. “The association has so many volunteer leaders who mark the Leadership Summit as an annual must-attend event on their calendar; they gain tremendous value from the event."
"In 2011, the hosted guest segment was an overwhelming success. The new 2012 format allows us to offer both programs, serving the different needs of our members and volunteers. The events will be a huge success.”
The 2012 ESA Leadership Summit will provide exceptional resources for the association’s volunteer leaders to hone their leadership skills, especially at the chapter level. Additionally, attendees will enjoy the camaraderie they have come to expect from ESA events.
The ESI Forum will host the nation’s most successful security integration companies in an intimate setting. Guests will have exceptional opportunities for idea sharing and unparalleled networking. Additionally, the Forum will offer a parallel track of seminars for integrator and chapter staff conferees not participating in the hosted buyer program.
