PSA Security Network, a consortium for systems integrators, announced that its annual TEC conference will include an in-person component as well as virtual offerings. TEC 2021 will be held live at the Sheraton Downtown Denver in Denver from May 3-5, 2021 and virtually from May 3-6, 2021. The 2020 PSA TEC was cancelled last year due to COVID-19.

“We’ve made the decision to convert to a hybrid model based on the data we’ve been seeing from the hotel and the city,” said PSA Director of Marketing Candice Aragon. “You may be wondering what a hybrid model entails. PSA plans to deliver premier education to our network whatever it takes. That means we’ll be converting the majority of our sessions to a virtual platform while still having our speakers present to you live from their offices.”

According to Aragon, this will allow for the greatest amount of interaction between speakers and attendees. The remaining sessions will follow an executive leadership track and will be presented live and in-person at the Sheraton Downtown Denver.

PSA TEC is an education and networking event for systems integrators. It features education and certification programs, networking and dedicated exhibit hours designed to advance the skills and expertise of industry professionals. PSA TEC 2021 is designed to meet the educational needs of all employees within an integrator’s organization with the addition of the virtual component.

For the in-person component, Aragon says PSA will follow safety protocols concerning social distancing, cleaning, mask use and other necessary safety precautions.

Aragon also says PSA is working with its vendor partners to convert the certification courses to a virtual model.

Registration will open for PSA owners and members on Feb. 8 and for non-members on Feb. 15. Visit the PSA TEC website for more information.
