WESTMINSTER, Colo.—PSA, one of the world’s largest security and systems integrator cooperatives, recently announced the education lineup and conference agenda for TEC 2018, which will be held March 12-16, 2018, in Denver.
TEC, presented by PSA, is an education and networking event for all professional systems integrators in the security and audio-visual markets. For 2018, TEC gets “Amplified” at its new location at the Sheraton Downtown in Denver with more than 140 new education sessions for systems integrators serving the security and audio-visual markets, dedicated exhibit hours where more than 100 vendors will showcase their product and services, and new networking events that tap into the unique offerings of Denver.
“For over 40 years, TEC has focused on providing high quality education to serve the most progressive integrators in the security industry,” Bill Bozeman, president and CEO of PSA, told Security Systems News via email. “That legacy continues this year with the most sessions offerings in our history that touch on emerging industry trends such as cybersecurity, audio-visual systems integration, RMR and so much more.”
The conference is open to all industry professionals and is designed to meet the educational needs of all employees within an integrator’s organization with sessions serving disciplines including business management, sales and marketing, HR and recruiting, project management and operations, and installation and service.
“The industry is evolving very quickly and TEC is poised to address all aspects of these changes from the point of view of executives, sales and marketing professionals, project managers, technicians and every other area of an integrators’ business,” said Bozeman. “TEC is open to everyone in our industry, not just PSA members, because we all need to be prepared for these changes and poised for what’s ahead.”
The education lineup will also feature 13 industry certification courses presented by leading manufacturers and industry associations, a learning path focused on recurring monthly revenue (RMR) topics, and more than 10 peer-led sessions from PSA Committees. The education program will deliver sessions tailored to physical security and audio-visual integrators focused on emerging technologies, critical issues in the industry, and tool development to augment attendees’ knowledge needed to continue to drive these industries forward.
In addition to a comprehensive education offering, TEC will host more than 100 security and audio-visual manufacturers showcasing products and services during dedicated exhibit hours on March 14, 2018.
General registration opens on Dec. 18, 2017, but PSA Members will have exclusive registration access starting on Dec. 11, 2017. Discounted early bird pricing is available until Jan. 19, 2018 for all attendees. For more information, visit www.psatec.com.
