ESA Announces 2016 Leadership Summit Dates & Location
The 2016 Summit will take place January 31-February 3, 2016 at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino in Chandler, AZ

Irving, Texas (June 8, 2015)
— Planning is underway for the 2016 ESA Leadership Summit event set for Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, 2016 at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino conveniently located in Chandler, AZ approximately 15 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The 2015 ESA Leadership Summit took place at the exquisite Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix and brought together nearly 250 respected security professionals to share business intelligence, network and learn how best to improve not only their own companies, but the industry as a whole.

Attendees praised the 2015 Leadership Summit event for its content, networking opportunities, venue and more.

“The 2015 ESA leadership was well organized at a beautiful venue, promoted a perfect networking atmosphere and was topped off with fantastic interactive sessions,” said Nicole Swartwout, partner with CallTeks Security. “I very much enjoyed networking not only with industry leaders, manufacturers and with professional companies like mine from across the nation, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the ESA staff and appreciate the intense work they do as a whole for our industry.”

Attendees used the Summit’s new appointment setting solution to connect with sponsors and each other during scheduled meeting times built into the event agenda. Summit registrants were able to login to the registration system in advance of the event and pre-plan meetings to make the most of their time spent in Phoenix.

Each Leadership Summit event is a whirlwind of activity, including the recognition of several industry luminaries for their contributions to the industry, such as the Sara E. Jackson Award and the announcement of the Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year award. ESA Past President, John D. Knox with Knox Integrated Systems was announced as the 2014 Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year and George Bish with Mastec received the 2015 Sara E. Jackson Memorial Award.

The 2016 event promises to be even bigger and better, bringing together 300 security industry professionals to Link Learn and Lead their businesses to new heights.

Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino boasts well-appointed meeting spaces, 100,000 square feet of Vegas-style gaming and a variety of restaurants and lounges, amenities and outstanding service. It is ideally located minutes from Tempe and Scottsdale on the beautiful base of South Mountain. The venue neighbors 36 holes of Troon Golf, Rawhide Western Town, Aji Spa, Koli Equestrian Center and for driving enthusiasts Bondurant School of Driving is right across the road. Newly added Premier Outlets exceed the shop-a-holics wildest dreams and offer high-end designer outlet stores like Coach and Burberry. The best part is that the hotel offers complimentary transportation all day throughout the destination.
