Fastener World Magazines Receive Unanimous Recognition from Local Buyers
Fastener Fair USA was held on May 16-17 this year at the Music City Center in Nashville. This show is a professional exhibition that is gaining more and more attention from fastener manufacturers in North America and is aimed at providing a platform for mutual meeting, cooperation and communication among manufacturers, master distributors, equipment makers, processors, packagers and end users in the supply chain.
This year, the show attracted 233 local and foreign exhibitors from the U.S. and abroad to showcase their latest products and trends in industrial fasteners, construction fasteners, assembly and installation systems, fastener production technology, distribution/storage/manufacturing equipment...etc. during the 2-day event. Participants also included 31 exhibitors from Taiwan and 19 exhibitors from India. Exhibitors mainly came from advanced fastener manufacturing, fastener distribution, aerospace, agriculture, automotive and construction fields.
Fastener World Inc. was also present at the show to distribute free publications to explore more possibilities of industrial cooperation for manufacturers/advertisers. According to Fastener World’s staff onsite, Taiwan Pavilion was the largest overseas pavilion at the show, and more than 30 exhibitors showcased their latest products and services to attract the attention of visiting buyers, hoping to take advantage of the slow recovery of market demand to seize the perfect opportunity to gain access to the supply chain of the fastener industry in the United States. The various publications and online sourcing platform of Fastener World were also highly appreciated by many local buyers in the U.S. at the event.
Show visitors this year didn't miss out the opportunities to meet face-to-face with fastener manufacturers, distributors and suppliers, discover the latest product technologies, attend educational seminars presented by industry experts, interact with competitive peers and potential customers, and observe trends and emerging markets in the fastener industry, either. Visitors from within the United States came primarily from Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Another highlight of this year's show was the Fastening 101 Conference held by Fastener Training Institute on 05/15, the day before the show, which covered topics such as manufacturing processes, consensus standards, quality control, product and design fundamentals. In addition, the show's opening night party was held at the Country Music Hall of Fame on 05/16 with a live performance by a famous local Nashville singer and songwriter Tommy O'Keeffe.
The organizers also announced immediately after the show that the next edition will be held at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland on May 22-23, 2024.
