The NTN UBE Technical Roadshow hits the highways this year bringing an immersive, interactive experience to our customers across Canada. This inaugural tour carries the latest technology for ball and roller bearings, wheel hub assemblies, seals, and linear motion products along with experiential marketing – to bring the NTN story to life. 

NTN Canada is helping its sales teams and distributors reach out to customers with a mobile demonstration unit that offers technical training on its bearing products. The company is bringing the roadshow to bearing users across Canada and providing a safe, socially distanced setting for the demonstrations. NTN’s Technical Training Seminars will be conducted live on-site featuring a wide range of products, from NTN KIZEI & ULTAGE Spherical Roller Bearings (for Steel, Pulp & Paper, Cement & Aggregate applications), to NTN Sentinel Series (Food Industry) and NTN Heavy Duty Mounted Units.  Also on display will be NTN’s new TRIAGE Engineering Solutions portfolio offering a systematic approach to bearing troubleshooting with NTN’s INSYNC remote collaboration technology. 

The mobile demonstration unit is further evidence of NTN’s continuous drive for innovation. NTN’s team reacted swiftly to the coronavirus crisis and developed a fully portable demonstration system. Visitors will be able to experience firsthand our newest products, confident that NTN is simultaneously ensuring their wellbeing.

The NTN UBE Technical Roadshow will travel to cities across Canada to give attendees the chance to participate in training seminars, interact with NTN engineers, see product demonstrations and network with industry peers. The one-day event features training seminars to increase technical expertise and hands-on instruction giving dealers and industry partners a chance to spend time with NTN experts.

“We are confident these exciting full day events will show dealers that NTN is here with the products, services and support they need to be successful with their bearing operations,” said Paul Meo, President & CEO of NTN Canada. “With the NTN Technical Roadshow, NTN is bringing its innovative bearing technology and latest products directly into customers’ backyards. It will be used to hold promotional events as well as product training in little served areas, as well as at major NTN distributor hubs across Canada.”


With the NTN Technical Roadshow, bearing end-users will have the opportunity to see exactly how robust NTN bearings are, but more importantly how easy it is to use them and how much operational efficiency in improved production and reduced downtime they will bring to manufacturing plants across Canada.

This show is also an opportunity to experience the speed and intensity of a NASCAR pit stop. Upon completion of their training session, NTN customers can check out the action at the NTN Pit Stop Challenge and compete to change out the tires in the fastest time possible. Grand Prize: The top two national leaderboard winners of the NTN Pit Stop Challenge across Canada will win an NTN Ultimate Bearing NASCAR Racing Experience at Daytona Speedway, Florida. Following the driver’s meeting with crew chief, training and instruction, you will get behind the wheel and drive a NASCAR Race Car for timed racing sessions on the Daytona Speedway. The three-day NASCAR Getaway includes a full day of driving at the Daytona International Speedway, a tour of the Kennedy Space Centre, return airfare for two and a three night stay for two, in Daytona, Florida.

NTN UBE Technical Roadshow events can be scheduled through NTN Business Development Managers and each event will feature product demonstrations, an NTN pit stop challenge and refreshments. The NTN Eventbrite portal will be used to share NTN UBE Technical Roadshow information, event dates, times and locations. Want to hop on board?
