The Annual BGA Technical Awareness Event (GEARS) 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.

Due to the ongoing Covid 19 situation in the UK the event will be held online from 16th – 18th November 2021.


About the sessions.

Each day will focus on one area of the power transmission sector and you can attend all week or specific days or sessions.

Each session will consist of a 30-minute presentation (available for preview prior to the event when possible) followed by a live Question and Answer session with the speaker.

A full agenda for each day will be posted in September 2021.

Call for Papers.

This is your opportunity to present your work to an audience of knowledgeable professionals from the UK and abroad and to participate in discussions with that audience.

Ideally, papers (or an extended abstract and a presentation when appropriate) should be original to the UK audience but previously presented material may be accepted at the discretion of the Gears 2021 Chairman. Your material should be technically accurate, relevant to power transmissions technology and free of commercialism.

You are invited to submit a brief Abstract as a Word or PDF file of no more than one page in length to admin(at)
