Michael Long, Vibration Institute Executive Director
From participating in several conferences to launching the first Vibration Institute Middle East Conference and the Vibration Institute Road Show, we are expanding our outreach to connect face-to-face with more members, certified vibration analysts, and industry peers. Over 120 attendees attended the first Vibration Institute Middle East Conference this past March, hosted by our exclusive Middle East International Representative RITEC. Vibration Institute President Bob Sayer, Vice Pres. Bill Pryor, and Executive Director Michael Long represented the Institute at the event in Sharm El-Skeikh, Egypt. The second edition of this highly successful event will take place in 2020.
In April, the Institute launched its first RoadShow series, a one-day educational program that began in St. Louis, visited Denver, and concluded in Portland. Bob Sayer met members across the country while traveling with the show as a presenter. Look for the next RoadShow as early as this November!
In addition to these new events, the Institute is exhibiting more at conferences to increase awareness of our training, certification, and other services. Check out these photographs from around the globe and catch a VI staff member or board member at one of these upcoming events:
