Building Opportunities Field Tech Summit: Empowering Installers and Technicians

VGM Live at Home, in conjunction with longtime member Access to Independence, is excited to host the Building Opportunities Field Tech Summit, taking place April 22-26 in Ravenna, OH! 

The Building Opportunities Field Tech Summit (formerly known as the Building Opportunities Installer Summit) brings together home access installers and technicians at the 9,000 square-foot showroom of Access to Independence to enhance their skills and gain certifications on a variety of home access equipment from multiple vendor partners.  

Participants will benefit from hands-on education provided by the following vendors: 

  • Bestbath 
  • EZ-ACCESS 
  • Harmar 
  • Hovertech (Molift) by Etac 
  • Human Care 
  • Innovate Building Solutions 

The focus will be on various home access equipment, such as ramps, stairlifts, overhead lifts, and bathroom remodel products. 

As the demand for home accessibility equipment and modifications continues to rise, certified installers play a vital role. Many vendors require certified installers for their equipment installations, making this summit a crucial opportunity for professional growth. Whether participants are interested in the entire summit or just a single day of training, this event provides a cost-efficient way to gain valuable certifications from key home access vendors. 

Those attending from out of town are encouraged to stay at The Hampton Inn Hotel in Kent, OH, near Akron. It is only a few miles away from Access to Independence. 

The Building Opportunities Field Tech Summit offers a streamlined way to enhance skills, network with industry experts, and achieve certifications. Spots are limited, and registration ends April 12, so be sure to secure your spot for this valuable event.
