The past weeks can only be described as extraordinary. Simple privileges we once took for granted, such as going out for dinner, attending sports events, traveling and much more are increasingly restricted as the world unites in an unprecedented effort to slow the spread of the dangerous new coronavirus. Engineering conferences are also being cancelled or postponed, the most recent being the IEEE PES T&D event that was to have taken place in Chicago in April but which has now been re-scheduled for October.
During these difficult times and beyond, INMR wishes to assure the T&D community across the globe of our continuing commitment to support your need for reliable professional information as much as we can.
Each week, INMR WEEKLY TECHNICAL REVIEW offers new technical articles and free video lectures that help T&D engineers keep up-to-date with the latest technologies and service experience. For example, since introduction last December, the INMR ONLINE LECTURE SERIES has been a huge success, with more than 3200 engineers in 150 countries ‘attending’ technical lectures on topics of interest. So far, almost 30 lectures have been posted for free viewing, with at least another 60 to be added in the weeks and months to come.
INMR.com, our flagship site, is rich in proprietary technical content not found anywhere else – all free of charge. Visit: www.inmr.com to select from more than 1000 technical articles written by the experts or to view free INMR ONLINE LECTURES – all conveniently sorted by topic.

Finally, the 2021 INMR WORLD CONGRESS is planned for Bangkok, Thailand in November 2021. We are optimistic that this crisis will have been resolved long before and that this will go ahead on schedule. Most exhibit space at this event is already reserved and a technical program is being developed. Visit www.inmrworldcongress.com to keep up-to-date on this major international event and to inquire about remaining exhibit opportunities.
During these difficult times, when personal contact and other normal channels of communication are increasingly being restricted, INMR’s online presence is there to help support your information needs.
We wish you all stay safe and share with you the common aspiration that, working together, humanity will quickly succeed in overcoming this terrible health emergency.
