PSA and USAV announced general registration has opened for PSA TEC 2021. Discounted early bird pricing is available until March 4, 2021, for all attendees. This year, TEC will be a hybrid event with a small in-person presence for executives of PSA and USAV member and owner companies and a virtual conference open to all levels of systems integrators.
“With COVID-19 concerns, we still want to bring people together in a safe manner for top-notch education and networking, while also providing an option for those who cannot travel just yet,” said Candice Aragon, director of marketing at PSA. “We look forward to being able to be together again, though in a limited capacity.”
PSA TEC will be held May 3-6. The live portion will be at the Sheraton Downtown in Denver, Colorado. The in-person education will be focused on executive leadership while the virtual courses will cover a variety of learning tracks including cybersecurity, managed services, NexGen leadership, management, marketing and sales, operations, procurement and technical.
The educational content includes sessions for systems integration professionals with a desire to stay relevant and thrive in changing markets through personal and professional development. Certifications from leading industry associations and vendors will be offered virtually so technicians can get the training they need without the need to travel. A complete list of the sessions can be found via the PSA TEC website.
“We are excited about both the live and virtual content of TEC 2021, including new NexGen education powered by USAV,” said Anthony Berticelli, vice president of operations at PSA. “The virtual sessions will be livestreamed allowing attendees to have high-impact connections with presenters.”
PSA will also celebrate its 50th anniversary at the live event in addition to awarding the prestigious Paul Marcus Award. TEC 2021 will feature leading manufacturers and service providers in a socially distanced trade show as well as offer private meetings for systems integrators and sponsors. A virtual trade show will also be available.
The special room rate for PSA TEC at the conference hotel, Sheraton Downtown Denver, is $229/night (plus tax and fees). Rooms are subject to availability and attendees are advised to book their hotel room promptly after completing their PSA TEC registration.
