Glen Ellyn, IL — The Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) has opened online registration for its Conference Tables Session at the association’s 2008 Annual Convention April 26-29, 2008, at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, Tucson, AZ.

BSA’s manufacturer-hosted Conference Table Session offers participants a unique opportunity to pre-schedule and plan for face-to-face meetings to address bearing industry concerns and resolve business problems. Convention attendees find these short, 30-minute meetings to be increasingly productive.

Online Conference Table Registration is available February 1 to April 1, 2008. After April 1st, convention attendees wishing to schedule Conference Table sessions may do so if space is available onsite April 26 & 27 at the BSA registration desk.

Online Conference Table registration is available to all those who have registered to attend the 2008 Annual Convention. All distributors planning to attend the Conference Tables Session are encouraged to register as soon as possible to assure that they obtain appointments at their desired times. Distributors are also encouraged to let manufacturers with whom they have made appointments know what they expect to discuss with the manufacturers.


BSA Conference Tables are just one aspect of the 2008 Annual Convention’s dynamic business program focused on BSA’s role as the global bearing association. The business program also features Jeffrey J. Fox, who introduced the concept of dollarization in <I>How to Become a Rainmaker</I> and <I>How to Become a Marketing Superstar,</I> and will explain how that theory is applicable globally, to the yen, euro, and other currencies; and Jim Cathcart on purpose-driven leadership. Convention attendees will also hear an industry update on the global bearing market from the American Bearing Manufacturers Association.
