PSA TEC 2021 Hybrid Format to Include In-Person Component

PSA announced the conference’s educational programming will be held in a virtual format while an in-person facet will be hosted in Denver.

DENVER — PSA Security Network is moving forward with plans to host an in-person component for PSA TEC 2021 in early May, while announcing the conference’s educational programming will be held in a virtual format.

Held annually, PSA TEC is a premier education and networking event for systems integrators. The conference offers industry-leading education and certification programs, networking and dedicated exhibit hours designed to advance the skills and expertise of industry professionals nationwide. Last year’s event was cancelled to due to the coronavirus pandemic.

PSA TEC 2021 is scheduled to be held May 3-6 at Denver’s Downtown Sheraton Hotel.

This week, PSA Director of Marketing Candice Aragon explained in a video announcement the organization decided to convert PSA TEC 2021 to a “hybrid model” based on data it received from the hotel and the city.

“You may be wondering what a hybrid model entails. PSA plans to deliver premier education to our network whatever it takes,” Aragon says in the video. “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.”

She continues, “This will allow for the greatest amount of interaction between speakers and attendees. The remaining sessions will follow an executive leadership track and be presented live and in person at the Sheraton in downtown Denver.”

PSA will follow safety protocols to ensure the space is clean, social distancing is possible, masks are used, and all necessary safety precautions are taken, she continues.

The systems integrator cooperative is working with its vendor partners to convert the certification courses to a virtual model to deliver technicians the training they need to keep integration firms on track for success, she explains.

The full list of certifications is available on the PSA TEC certifications page. Registration will open for PSA owners and members on Feb. 8; non-members, Feb. 15.
