VALVE REPAIR MEETING, TOUR & EXHIBITs
About the Program
The Valve Repair Council (VRC) is dedicated to providing value to its membership, not only by creating networking opportunities with valve manufacturers, but also by creating opportunities for members to participate in events that will help them to develop their own service capabilities and differentiate them in a market full of competitors.
The VRC’s Valve Repair Meeting, Tour & Exhibits, which is open to members and others in the repair industry, focuses on some of the issues specific to repairing valve assemblies and keeping them operating at peak efficiency, as well as addressing high-level concerns about what is happening in the industry, what pressures it faces and where it is headed.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This meeting is open to both VMA/VRC members and non-members. Anyone involved in the valve repair industry, particularly front line supervisors, are invited to attend.
WHO SHOULD EXHIBIT?
Any company that is a supplier to or client of the valve repair industry is invited to exhibit. Financial firms and merchant banks are also welcome. Lunch, afternoon break and evening reception on are held in the exhibit area, guaranteeing attendees multiple opportunities to view the tabletop exhibits and ensuring a steady flow of potential customers for exhibitors.
