What They're saying

  • The BSA Convention offers the best opportunity for the leadership of distributors and manufacturers to grow their relationships and set strategy for mutual business growth. This year, attendance at the convention is a must for all of us, to be able to move forward and rekindle those relationships that have been compromised over the past year.

    – John Masek, Bearing Service Inc.

  • 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

  • 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

Relationships Matter

The Annual Convention brings together the top leadership of only authorized bearing distributors and manufacturers and offers unparalleled opportunities to grow successful relationships with trusted supply chain partners.
