There’s just one week left before the VMA Valve Forum Technical Track Live Watch-Along event.  

The most comprehensive virtual gathering place for all those in the valve industry value chain, the Virtual Valve Forum offers solutions, content and business opportunities for the valve, valve actuator and valve automation industry. Thought leaders will present on manufacturing, technical, repair, marketing, management and other business topics.

The Technical Track is designed for experienced technical and engineering personnel working with valves and related products. This year’s track is offered over three days, focusing on IIoT/Predictive Analytics, trends in end-user seat testing requirements, standards updates and much more.
