  • I thought assigned seating for Sunday evening was a great idea. The "team" event made it an even better experience!

    Jeff Williams, General Bearing Corporation

  • Great convention. Liked the change in the business program. Speakers were relevant to our industry. Social events were fun.

    – Jim Fitzpatrick, Bearing Specialty Company

  • The business program was probably the best I have seen BSA execute. Great job.

    – Randy Breaux, Motion Industries, Inc.

  • The entire event was world-class. The attention to detail, schedule and programming were well worth the time and financial investment. The location worked well.

    – Jeff Guritza, Osborn

  • I very much liked the assigned seating, and felt that pushed people to meet each other - as a first time attendee, I liked it very much.

    – Charles Estermann, Weimer Bearing &Transmission, Inc.

  • This was the best convention I've attended because of the meeting structure, content, activities and venue.

    – David Zoesch,  Schaeffler Group

  • It was a beautiful setting, very well run meetings, and some excellent group activities. The camaraderie throughout the organization and the fact that relationships do matter was very apparent.
