WESTMINSTER, Colo.—PSA, a global security and systems integrator consortium, announced the education lineup, conference agenda and a new exhibit showcase date for TEC 2019 to be held March 11-14, 2019 at the Sheraton Downtown in Denver.

“I’m excited about the continued growth we’re seeing year to year at PSA TEC,” Anthony Berticelli, PSA director of education, told Security Systems News. “As industry trends change and develop, so do the methods we use to best deliver top notch training around those trends, such as managed services, recurring monthly revenue, AI, and cybersecurity. Our focus on hands-on learning, peer-led sessions and content tailored to every position within the security integration company provides a continued focus on holistic company training. Additionally, providing nearly 15 product certifications really sets TEC apart.”

TEC, presented by PSA, is an education and networking event for all professional systems integrators in the security and audio-visual markets. This year’s education conference will feature more than 100 education sessions, workshops and certification trainings from industry experts and partner organizations.

The event will also leverage a full day of dedicated exhibit hours on Thursday, March 14, 2019, where more than 125 security and audio-visual vendors will showcase their product and services along with networking events in Denver. 

“We are very excited about the changes coming to TEC this year that will further open the doors of this conference to more systems integration companies across the nation,” Kim Garcia, director of marketing for PSA, said in the announcement. “For many years TEC has been open to all industry professionals to attend regardless of their affiliation with PSA because the training we offer is meant to better the industry as a whole as well as the attendees in their personal disciplines.”

Berticelli added, “Im also very proud to continue our partnership with our friends at SIA and ASIS to offer CSPM and PSP courses to help our attendees develop their teams at all levels.”

All told, the TEC 2019 education program will deliver invaluable sessions to systems integration professionals with a desire to stay relevant and thrive in changing markets through personal and professional development. With dedicated learning tracks focused on job function, attendees will leave TEC with ways to improve operational efficiencies, add additional value to their businesses and their customers’ journeys and support emerging market trends including managed services and cybersecurity from their own vantage points.  

“TEC is really one of the best kept secrets in our industry for any professional looking for a training and exhibit venue where they don’t get lost in the crowd,” said Garcia. “PSA TEC is all about building relationships and exchanging information with people who share the same challenges you do every day. Whether you are a business owner, technician, project manager, sales and marketing professional or operational support, there is training available to you at TEC that can make you better at your job.”

General registration opens on Dec. 12. PSA owners/members will have exclusive registration access starting on Dec. 5. Discounted early bird pricing is available until Jan. 12, 2019, for all attendees.
