Originally, PSA’s leadership team sought to reschedule the April event for later in the year but has resolved to cancel altogether after more examination.
“It was a very difficult decision to cancel TEC for 2020 and our team worked hard to find other solutions,” states Candice Aragon, PSA’s director of marketing. “Ultimately, with the uncertainty in the world right now, it is hard to plan an event when we do not know how our industry and integrators will be affected in the coming months. We are focused on keeping PSA operating as regularly as possible and providing the support our integrators need in these challenging times.”
The consortium has released frequently asked questions for registered attendees, speakers and sponsors of TEC 2020. The FAQs can be found here. TEC 2021 will be held May 3-6, 2021, at the Sheraton Downtown Denver.

More information about this event will be released in the coming weeks.
PSA is hosting a series of COVID-19 Roundtable webinars to discuss how the virus is impacting integrators.
