PSA, a large security and systems integrator consortium, announced it will cancel TEC 2020 due to COVID-19. Originally PSA’s leadership team sought to reschedule the April 2020 event for later in the year but has resolved to cancel altogether after more examination.
“It was a very difficult decision to cancel TEC for 2020 and our team worked hard to find other solutions,” said Candice Aragon, PSA’s director of marketing. “Ultimately, with the uncertainty in the world right now, it is hard to plan an event when we do not know how our industry and integrators will be affected in the coming months. We are focused on keeping PSA operating as regularly as possible and providing the support our integrators need in these challenging times.”
PSA has released frequently asked questions for registered attendees, speakers and sponsors of TEC 2020. The FAQs can be found here: www.psatec.com/cancellation. TEC 2021 will be held May 3 – 6, 2021, at the Sheraton Downtown Denver in Denver, Colorado.
PSA is also rethinking its annual Leadership Convention in October. Organizers are considering an event entirely dedicated to serving PSA integrators and partners with specialized content and networking that will allow them to reinvent their businesses in a post COVID-19 economy. More information about this event will be released in the coming weeks.
PSA is hosting a series of COVID-19 Roundtable webinars to discuss how the virus is impacting integrators. In addition to the webinars, PSA has compiled numerous resources specific to the security and AV industries to help integrators navigate these challenging times.
