The inaugural Fastener Fair USA has drawn to a close having attracted more than 2.000 registrants, exceeding the expectations of the show organiser, Mack Brook Exhibitions.
Running over two days at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, there were over 250 exhibitors from 20 countries looking to connect with customers in the Midwest manufacturing region representing a variety of industries like distribution, automotive, aerospace, energy, civil engineering, and construction.
The show is moving to Detroit, Michigan, next year, at the Cobo Center over 22-23 May 2019.
“The feedback we have received from exhibitors and attendees has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Jessica Boweak, Exhibition Manager for Fastener Fair USA. “The exhibitors were connecting with the people they wanted to meet and the education sessions offered unique value not seen at other fastener events. Many exhibitors are already planning their participation in 2019, with nearly 20% of the floor already reserved.”
Fastener Fair USA focused on bringing together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users in fastener and joining technology, bringing the format that has been taken around the world to the US market.
