What They're saying

  • 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.

    –Scott Eiss, NTN Bearing Corporation of America
