The next European User Meeting will be taking place in the beautiful city of
Warsaw Poland on the 11-13 October 2018.


We are very excited to be going back to the beautiful city of Warsaw. We were there last for our meeting in 2006 when we were joined by 150 delegates. The meetings have grown considerably since then and we are planning on having between 400-500 delegates join us in October 2018!

The meeting will take place at the Hilton Warsaw Hotel & Convention Centre, just a 20-minute walk from the old town. The hotel has the largest meeting room we have ever had, giving us the space for an even bigger and better meeting!

  • Within walking distance of shops and restaurants and  25-minute walk from historic Old Town
  • 20-minute drive to Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport and 4-minute walk to Rondo Daszynskiego Station
  • WiFi available for guests, complimentary in public areas

What is a BearingNet User Meeting? 

Think speed dating….

warsawWe put hundreds of distributors all in one location over one weekend to meet, talk business and build long lasting relationships. We also throw in some good food and drink to ensure everyone has a great time!

We have been hosting the User Meetings for over 10 years now and have learnt something from each meeting. What we do know is that our distributors want the time to talk to each other about what they have to offer, so we have given them just that! There are no strict time structures for your meetings, you could have a meeting that lasts 10 minutes or 1 hour…you can even continue the meeting later in the bar!

We have tried to create a relaxed atmosphere, one which ensures delegates look forward to attending the event but also know that they will leave the meeting with excellent business connections.

Who should attend and why?

The BearingNet User Meetings attract distributors from over 40 countries worldwide. It is an excellent opportunity for BearingNet members to meet lots of companies all in one location, to see old friends and make new business connections. The meetings are typically attended by business owners, sales and purchasing managers and import and export specialists.

“An interesting and informative meeting which enabled me to meet people from the same field. It’s good to know who is doing what and to get to meet these people face to face. Meeting in person is an altogether different and longer lasting experience.”

G Singh – Triveni Needles P Ltd

The meetings have been designed to be the perfect way to enhance your online business relationships and turn them into successful face to face connections. People still like to do business with people they trust – face to face is still the best form of communication and attending the User Meetings gives you 3 days to meet and talk business helping you to build really strong profitable business relationships!

Manufacturer’s Opportunities at the meetings

As well as the BearingNetworking we also invite our manufacturing members (ManEx) to take part in our ‘Manufacturers Showcase’. This is a unique opportunity for Manufacturers to promote their products to hundreds of distributors and to talk to these distributors in person. You will have time to meet with the distributors in a less formal setting over food and some drinks and also 2 full days of networking to have the business talks! You will be given your own table to hold meetings and display your product. BearingNet will also help to promote your company to our 1800 distributor members, letting them know who you are, what you have to offer and giving them the opportunity to meet with you in Warsaw!

Take a look at our video from our last meeting in Madrid, it gives you a great idea of the format and shows you the fantastic atmosphere we have at the meetings…but don’t take our word for it listen to what our distributors and manufacturers have to say about it!


We have fantastic sponsorship opportunities available at the meetings, if you would like to promote your company and find out what sponsorship is available please contact us.

The User Meetings are exclusively for BearingNet members – if you would like the opportunity to attend please email or sign up for a 14 day free trial on BearingNet.

We look forward to seeing you there!
