VGM Live at Home Prepares For Home Access Events in 2023

Published in Home Modifications on March 15, 2023

VGM Live at Home has been busy planning several home access events and trainings for spring 2023. From installation training to learning about walk-in tubs, we have the education you need to help grow your business and network with fellow home access professionals. 

International Seating Symposium (ISS) 
April 13-15 in Pittsburgh, PA 

For the first time, VGM Live at Home will be attending the 38th International Seating Symposium (ISS), where we will be exhibiting at booth #401 with our home access vendor partners Bestbath, Entrematic, EZ-ACCESS, Harmar, and Human Care USA. Our goal is to connect with rehab professionals and demonstrate the opportunities that home accessibility provides to the complex rehab space. To learn more about ISS, click here

Building Opportunities Installer Summit
April 17-21 in Ravenna, OH 

VGM Live at Home, in conjunction with longtime member Access to Independence, is once again hosting the Building Opportunities Installer Summit at the Vincent Pelose Aging in Place Showroom!  

As demand for home accessibility equipment and home modifications increases, there is also an increased need for certified installers. Many vendors also require installers to be certified to install their equipment. That is why this event is a perfect opportunity for installers to earn these certifications. Being able to achieve certified installer training from several companies in one trip is a great time-saving and cost-efficient way to train installer technicians. 

This five-day event includes hands-on education and certified trainings from several vendor partners, including:  

  • Bestbath 
  • Entrematic/Record Door Opener HA7 Residential Installation (Max class size of 10) 
  • Merits Stairlift Installation Training (Max class size of 20) 
  • EZ-ACCESS Pathway 3G Modular Ramp System (Max class size of 20) 
  • Harmar VPL, SSL, and CSL (Max class size of 15) 
  • Innovative Building Solutions - Fibo Installation (Max class size of 12) 
  • Molift/ETAC Overhead Lift Install Certification Training (Max class size of 12) 
  • Human Care USA Overhead Lift Certified Training on Full Line 

Participants may choose to sign up for the entire summit or one day of training. Registration is limited and ends April 10. To learn more and register, click here

Bestbath Dealer Day
May 10-11 in Boise, ID 

We are excited to co-sponsor a dealer day event exclusively for VGM Live at Home members with Bestbath at the Holiday Inn Boise Airport! 

This event is a great chance for members to come together to learn how to grow your business with walk-in bathroom installations. Enjoy a factory tour at Bestbath's headquarters, sales and marketing sessions, round table discussions, and networking dinners! 

Registration is limited and ends April 10. To learn more and register, click here

This spring is packed full of home access trainings and events, and we are looking forward to each of these in-person events. We are also busy planning for the Building Opportunities Summit in the fall of 2023. We will be sure to communicate any updates regarding this summit as soon as they’re available. 

We hope you join us and fellow VGM Live at Home members this spring!
