Every year, the global public safety and communications community convenes to collaborate, share expertise, and celebrate the continual progress made in the industry. This August, Nashville, Tennessee, became the epicentre of these discussions and advancements at APCO 2023. BeResponsive Media was there to engage and learn, but also to document. We conducted interviews to give our readers a firsthand look into the heart of the event, showcasing conversations with industry leaders, innovations, and the camaraderie that defines APCO.

While at the conference, we also took the opportunity to explore Nashville. We spent some time on Broadway Street, a bustling area filled with lively music and vibrant nightlife. It was great to drop into local restaurants and bars, tasting the city's famed dishes and catching live performances. The blend of food, music, and atmosphere on Broadway showcased the city's rich cultural heritage and made our trip that much better.
Attending APCO 2023 reaffirmed our commitment to Public Safety & Communications. We are grateful to APCO International for this platform and to every individual we engaged with. As we reminisce about this year, we're already eager for APCO 2024 and the opportunities it will bring.
