The Bearing Show co-located with Lubricant Expo is back for 2023 – Join the leaders in bearing technology, 26th – 28th September 2023. Messe Essen, Germany.
The Bearing Show is set to return to Essen, Germany later this year as the industry’s largest free-to-attend exhibition and conference. Co-located with Lubricant Expo, Europe’s largest lubrication technology event, the two shows sit side-by-side, providing visitors with an extensive range of suppliers and educational sessions that aim to help visitors looking at reducing costs, improving efficiency, progressing OEM development and maximising the performance of systems across a range of environments.
Strategically placed in the heartland of industrial Germany, The Bearing Show is attracting attendees from key end-user sectors, from OEM’s pushing the performance of their products, to maintenance and service professionals that keep operations running optimally. Coupling the event with Lubricant Expo provides a very complementary addition of sessions and suppliers, along with its own audience of OEM’s, machine manufacturers, industrial plant managers, global distribution channels, and more.
A core belief held by the event’s directors, Paul Hooker and Anthony Roberts of Event Partners Ltd, is that there is a unique value in connecting the needs of an industry’s end-user customers with the innovation occurring throughout the entire industry supply-chain.
Paul notes this approach to the show, “One of my favourite parts of organising events like this is witnessing the interactions that it enables, in talking with visitors from a diverse range of positions, all coming from different angles in terms of their relation to the industry itself. Of course, you see and expect the obvious connections being made between suppliers and their customers, but hearing from visitors about the opportunities they are walking away with that occur through surprising connections that wouldn’t normally occur outside of an environment like this, it’s a very satisfying aspect of bringing groups together in this way”.
With this interconnected nature in mind, The Bearing Show features exhibitors from the entire industry ecosystem, including finished bearings, condition monitoring technologies, materials, tools, manufacturing equipment, components and testing solutions, all an important aspect of bearing specification, production and application.
The 2022 show was a major success, welcoming 120+ exhibiting companies, 80+ speakers and thousands of attendees across an action packed 3 days. With preparations well and truly underway for the 2023 event, the show has already welcomed brand new exhibitors alongside the returning industry giants, participating in the exhibition and conference including: NTN, NSK, Timken, SKF, Total Energies, Miba, ALT Bearings, Fraunhofer, JESA SA, SDT Ultrasound Solutions, Petronas and many more!
“It was important to see some different possibilities for the exhibitors, some news, some highlights, some improvements and this for me as an engineer is quite important”. Ulrich Gimpel, Lead Center Linear Motion, NTN Germany.
“It’s been a fantastic show! Exactly what I have been looking for to see more opportunities and more engagement whilst looking at the solutions to our problems in the industry. I have thoroughly enjoyed it!” Sarma Volety, Tata Steel.
Alongside the exhibit hall, the event features a three-day conference that tackles the pertinent challenges, opportunities and innovations presenting end-users and manufacturers across key applications and markets. Development of the 2023 program is about to begin and looking back at last year’s highlights from lively panel discussions, educational presentations and interactive workshops provides an agenda that targets the needs of bearing customers across the board. Sessions included deep dives into topics such as bearing failure analysis, high-speed developments, state-of-the-art bearing designs, market expectations and forecasts, management of shifting lead-times, approaches to bearing life extension and much more! With the call for 2023 speakers happening soon, the event is setting its sights on an equally engaging program, once again recruiting the leaders of the field to deliver these educational conversations.
With the 2023 event already on the verge of being sold out, having seen 90% of stands being allocated to exhibitors, now is the time to get in contact with The Bearing Show and Lubricant Expo team to secure your position on the exhibition floor.
