Emerging Technology Forum

APCO’s Emerging Technology Forum is going virtual! Dates to be announced.

We are excited to move the Tech Forum to a virtual event allowing even more people to “attend” this valuable meeting where industry leaders address the challenges of the ever-changing landscape of emergency communications.

Why Attend?

With so many changes in regulations, technology and equipment, it is vital for those on the front line of public safety communications to stay on top of the latest developments and continue to grow professionally.


What is the date for the virtual Tech Forum?
A new date will be announced soon.

Will registration fees be the same for the virtual event?
Please check the registration page for virtual event pricing.

Will my registration fees be refunded or transferred to the virtual event? When?
Those who are currently registered will receive an email regarding the option for a refund or to transfer their registration to the virtual event. If a refund is requested, they will be issued in the same method in which payment was received (i.e. if you paid by credit card, your credit card will be issued a refund; if you paid by check, APCO will issue you a check for the refund). Refunds will take approximately 7-14 days to process once the request is received.

Will APCO cancel my hotel reservations if I booked through the APCO Tech Forum website?
Yes, hotel cancellations will be handled for you if you booked within the APCO room block via our website link. Hotel reservations that were NOT booked through APCO’s website will not be canceled for you. If you booked a room outside of the official APCO room block or online at another hotel, you will need to cancel your own reservation.

Will APCO help with fees associated with the cancellation of my travel reservations?
APCO is not able to assist with travel arrangements you made on your own. However, most airlines have made special provisions to address COVID-19 related issues. Please contact your travel agent or the airline directly to learn about the options that exist.

Who can I contact if I have additional questions?
