The Electronic Security Association Celebrates 75 years at ESX 2023 in Louisville, Kentucky!
Electronic Security Association — August 23, 2023

Security pros from across the nation were abuzz with excitement as the Electronic Security Association (ESA) celebrated its momentous 75th Diamond Jubilee at ESX 2023 in Louisville, Kentucky. ESA was founded in 1948 and has been at the forefront of shaping and serving the electronic security industry over the past seven and a half decades. As things evolved, so did ESA and its many volunteers, adapting to the changing landscape and continuously striving to improve.  

ESX 2023 featured an impressive lineup of educational sessions, keynote speeches, and networking opportunities. Experts and thought leaders shared their knowledge and expertise, covering topics ranging from emerging technologies like ChatGPT, RMR strategies and industry advocacy issues. The expo floor was a bustling hub of activity, with exhibitors showcasing their cutting-edge products and having real quality conversations with attendees. 

Beyond the educational sessions and awards, ESX 2023 was a celebration of camaraderie and collaboration. Networking events provided a platform for attendees to connect, share ideas, and build valuable relationships. I remember the sense of community and shared purpose was palpable, as professionals from different backgrounds came together with a shared commitment to enhancing security and safety through technology and excellent service. 

In addition to celebrating the association’s 75 years of service, we also commemorated ESA’s Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year Award to Jamie Vos. Everyone in attendance enjoyed great conversation, live music, and local Louisville fare at this 1920’s themed networking event! 

As the event came to a close, I reflected on the remarkable journey ESA has had in the past 75 years. ESX served as a reminder of the progress made and the challenges overcome, while also fueling the ESA’s vision for the future. It celebrated the achievements of the past and laid a solid foundation for a future driven by technological advancements and a collective commitment to safety and security. ESA and its members now look ahead to the next 75 years, eager to embrace new opportunities and navigate the ever-changing landscape of electronic security.
