Live From PSA TEC 2022: PSA Execs Talk Show, Provide Industry Insights
Editor-in-Chief Scott Goldfine catches up with PSA CEO Matt Barnette, President Ric McCullough and Past Board of Directors Chairman Dan Budinoff at TEC 2022 in this special edition of the Security Speaking podcast.
PSA’s annual conference, now known as TEC, features a unique combination of outstanding education and unrivaled networking among leaders from the industry’s top security systems integration companies, all in a very relaxed, friendly and professional environment.
This year’s installment, held as usual in Denver, this time at the Downtown Sheridan Hotel, was all the more meaningful as everyone continues to rebound from the pandemic.
An estimated 500 participants convened for the 2022 edition, staged as an in-person event May 16-19 as a companion to a virtual edition held the following week. The live education program delivered sessions focusing on leadership and next-generation talent, while the virtual sessions centered on professional development across a variety of job functions including sales, marketing, IT networking, operations, procurement and technology partner relations, technicians and project managers.
Among the new wrinkles for the live version was TecTalk Tables, which matched vendors with integrators for direct conversations. Both factions were said to be enjoyable and very productive.
Easily the biggest topic of conversation among everyone was the supply chain crisis and its enormous impacts on business and operations. Also prompting deep discussions was talent recruitment and on the technology front, Cloud, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
It was also announced that for one of the only times in its more than 40-year history, next year’s event will take place in Dallas. Apparently, PSA needs a larger space to accommodate this valuable event.
