Big Changes Ahead at TEC 2018!
The annual TEC conference and exhibit showcase hosted by PSA is created with professional security integrators in mind. TEC has a new location and new dates this year, finding its new host hotel at the Sheraton Downtown Denver on March 12-16, 2018. This year’s conference expands its education offerings to 140+ sessions and 13 industry certifications, along with dedicated exhibit hours on Wednesday, March 14 where more than 100 leading security and audio-visual vendors will showcase their products and services.
“The theme for TEC 2018 is ‘Amplified’ and this is a perfect description for the changes and developments to the event,” said Kim Garcia, director of marketing for PSA. “The event has expanded in terms of our educational offerings, number of vendors on the show floor, and even a larger physical footprint to accommodate more attendees. All in all, TEC is poised to serve the needs of all employees within an integrator’s organization in business management, sales and marketing, HR and recruiting, project management and operations, and installation and service.”
TEC 2018 will once again host certification opportunities from leading security industry associations and sessions on emerging trends such as:
· Infrastructure with Emerging Technology
· Electronic Security Networking Technician (ESNT)
· SIA CSPM Exam
· Feenics Intermediate & Advanced Training
· Anti-Terrorist Gate System Design Training
· The Age of Cybersecurity: Changing Roles and Expectations
· 3xLOGIC infinias Certification Training
· exacqVision Video Management Software Training
“A major draw for TEC is that it’s an opportunity for integrator companies to train their entire team,” said Anthony Berticelli, director of education for PSA. “The sessions, certifications, and tracks that we have put together are designed to offer something to every level within a security integrator company including technicians, procurement, sales and marketing professionals, project managers, executive leaders and everyone in between.”
The always popular “State of the Industry” session, moderated by PSA’s President and CEO Bill Bozeman, will bring together a diverse selection of industry experts in a can’t-miss discussion of what’s happening in the marketplace and the challenges and opportunities for today’s systems integrator.

“TEC has earned the reputation of being one of the most valuable resources for expanding the education of low voltage systems integrators as well as the expressive networking opportunities that brings together the brightest integrators, manufacturers and security professionals,” said Bill Bozeman, CPP. “Our sponsors recognize the importance of an event of this magnitude within our industry and have supported the mission of TEC year after year. We are deeply honored that they share the same commitment as PSA and support this event.”
Event registration is currently open for all systems integrator professionals, whether they are PSA members or not. “There is a common misconception that TEC is only for members of PSA and that is not the case,” Garcia said. “Our mission at TEC is to offer superior training opportunities to all systems integrators so we can continue to improve the industry as a whole.”
