The 2022 Conference Table Session is scheduled for Tuesday morning, May 3, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and will consist of eight, twenty-minute sessions. Online Conference Table registration opens February 14, 2022! All BSA Participating Manufacturer companies have been assigned a conference Table. Distributors must be registered for the 2022 Annual Convention in order to make appointments.
Distributor attendees: Distributors may make appointments beginning on April 1, 2022
The Annual Convention is the forum to enhance networking and knowledge sharing to promote the sale of bearings through authorized distributors. BSA’s manufacturer-hosted Conference Tables Sessions are essential to the success of building and growing trusted relationships between authorized distributors and the manufacturers of bearing products.
Conference Table participants pre-schedule and plan for face-to-face meetings to address bearing industry concerns and resolve business problems. Both manufacturers and authorized distributors find value in this personal interaction with trusted industry executives. Convention attendees find these short, 20-minute meetings to be increasingly productive. Please use the link(s) below to maximize the end results of your conference table sessions.
February 14 - March 31 - Manufacturers can make up to TWO appointments with the available Member Distributor Companies of their choice.
April 1 - April 29 - Distributors can make their conference table appointments to fill their 8 total appointments. Manufacturers can continue to make their two appointments if they have not already and space is available.
Registered distributors will have the opportunity to sign up online for eight, twenty-minute appointments with the manufacturers of their choice from April 1 - April 29, unless any of their 8 appointment times are already booked by a manufacturer. Distributors wishing to schedule Conference Table Sessions on-site, may do so at the registration desk by making appointments in the Conference Table Registration books but only for those appointments that are still available at existing tables from Saturday, April 30 through Sunday, May 1 at 11:00 a.m.
Online Conference Table Registration is available to all distributors who have registered to attend the 2022 Annual Convention. Distributors planning to attend the Conference Tables Session are encouraged to register as soon as possible to ensure that they obtain appointments at their desired times. Distributor companies with multiple attendees are encouraged to visit a greater number of manufacturer tables by splitting their attendees into two or more groups rather than making only one appointment in each time slot for the entire distributor company. Distributors are also encouraged to let manufacturers with whom they have made appointments know what they expect to discuss with the manufacturers.
All BSA Participating Manufacturer companies have been assigned a Conference Table. One Conference Table Contact at each Manufacturer Company may use his or her login to view the company appointments at the time registration opens. All other manufacturers may log in to view appointments after they are registered for the 2022 Convention. Manufacturers can schedule up to TWO appointments from February 14 to March 31 and after that if space is available.
Please note: every Participating Manufacturer Company has a conference table assigned. If you have any questions regarding conference tables, please contact Sarah Thompson, BSA Meeting Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
When Online Conference Table Registration is open:
BSA also encourages participating manufacturers to hold individual private meetings with registered distributors to maximize your participation at the BSA Convention. In fact, the Convention schedule sets aside Tuesday afternoon, May 3, 2022, for private individual meetings. As a reminder, BSA policy requires that participating manufacturer invitations for individual private meetings must not overlap with BSA programs or social functions other than tours.
