Taking place at AFRC, Strathclyde on 14th & 15th November 2017

The British Gear Association is the UK Centre of Technical Excellence for gear design, manufacture & application technologies. The Annual Technical Awareness Event is the leading conference for the Gear Industry in the UK and this long running seminar is considered an essential event for manufacturers, distributors and academics involved in the UK Gears Industry.

Gears 2017 provides an outstanding forum to generate discussion and share ideas with others on all aspects of power transmission technology, commercial interests and the future of manufacture within the UK. With papers crossing the borders from renewable energy, design software, defence and technical notes, there should be something of interest for everyone.  In addition to the cutting edge lectures and talks from pre-eminent experts there will be plenty of opportunity to network with the leading gear companies, manufacturers, distributors and academics. This will be your chance to share opportunities, discuss challenges and promote your interests to like-minded people.
AFRC have kindly offered to provide delegates with a tour of their facility on the afternoon of Tuesday 14th November, more information to follow.

The full running order for GEARS 2017 , as well as details of the informal dinner on the 14th November at The Lynnhurst Hotel, will be finalised shortly.  For those requiring accommodation The Lynnhurst Hotel are offering delegates a reduced rate of £77 for a standard room and £97 for an executive room, bookings to be made direct with the hotel and subject to availability.
