Europe’s First Free to Attend Exhibition and Conference for the Bearing Industry Launches in 2022

The Bearing Show, co-located with Lubricant Expo is Europe’s first free-to-attend exhibition and conference bringing together the entire bearing value chain and end-user industries. This unique event is taking place on the 6 – 8 September 2022 at the leading exhibition venue Messe Essen in Germany. The location and unique format of the event means it is poised to provide a commercial platform connecting each part of the bearing supply chain with key customers and decision-makers.

With an expected 4,500+ attendees from industries including automotive, steel, cement,  construction & agriculture, wind energy Oil & Gas and mining to name a few, visitors will find a comprehensive array of bearing technologies on display including the latest in complete bearings, condition monitoring, lubrication, testing & analysis, bearing components, digitalisation, materials and more.

An advisory board of industry leaders is helping to shape the focus and format of this event, from organisations including SKF Industrial Technologies, NTN Germany, Wieland Caro GmbH, JESA, NSK, Morgan Advanced Materials, NKE Bearings, GMN Bearing USA, and more.

The bearing industry is set to grow annually by 8.5% over the next 7 years, this along with the increased demand for reducing maintenance requirements, increasing efficiency and prolonging the product lifecycle is creating a vibrant and evolving landscape of opportunities and challenges, both in the needs of bearing customers and the production of bearings themselves. The Bearing Show will provide a dedicated showcase of the technology and knowledge needed to reduce costs, improve efficiency and maximise the performance and longevity of products.

A free conference running alongside the exhibition will feature 60+ expert speakers covering State of the art bearing designs and innovation, bearing life extension, material interactions and lubricant compatibility to name a few. The Bearing Show conference provides a unique opportunity to gain access, on a complimentary basis, to an industry-leading programme that is not to be missed.

Over 250 exhibitors will be at the show for three days of networking, lead generation and education at Messe Essen, Germany, which is centrally located between Rotterdam (the maritime capital of Europe), Hanover, and Frankfurt. Leading organisations are already confirmed including: JESA, SKF, SDT Ultrasound Solutions, Tygris Ltd, Weiland Caro GmbH and many more.

Paul Hooker, Event Director of The Bearing Show says “We are absolutely delighted with the industry-wide support we are receiving for The Bearing Show, from major global organisations to industry-specific thought-leaders helping to shape this event. The drive for increased efficiency and prolonging the longevity of products, alongside the increase in global demand for bearing technology is creating a new landscape of opportunities, growth and challenges for the development of bearing and associated technologies worldwide. The Bearing Show provides the perfect opportunity to learn from and engage with the people and products helping to solve real-world engineering challenges.”
