IRVING, Texas—ESX 2014, held in June in the Music City Center of Nashville, drew more than 2,000 professionals and 200-plus exhibitors, according to a news release from the Electronic Security Association.

The trade show, jointly owned and sponsored by ESA and the Central Station Alarm Association, focuses on the needs of electronic security integration and monitoring companies. At the conclusion of the event, ESX reported a four-percent increase in pre-sold booth space and sponsorships for ESX 2015.

Next year’s show will be held in Baltimore, the release noted.

“We are not surprised by ESX’s year-over-year increased sales. With recognition by Trade Show Executive magazine as one of the 50 fastest growing trade shows in the country, we know that ESX is on to something special,” George De Marco, ESX chair, said in the statement. “It provides a mutually beneficial ecosystem that allows attendees and exhibitors to have meaningful conversations and make important connections.”
