Riga User Meeting – Premium Sponsors

“The BearingNet User Meetings are now the world’s largest gathering of bearing and power transmission distributors! The event offers excellent networking opportunities and gives companies the chance to promote their company/products and make solid business relationships.

We introduced the ‘Premium Sponsorship’ to our meeting in Amsterdam 2012. It gives a small number of BearingNet members the chance for greater exposure at the meetings. These companies benefit from sponsorship opportunities and have extra floor space in the networking event where they can construct their own exhibits.

The following companies are the Premium Sponsors at the 2014 User Meeting taking place in Riga Latvia, 9-11 October. I would like to say a big thank you to these companies for helping to make the meeting a great success!” Nicola Beer, Marketing and Events Manager at BearingNet
