The 35th National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo scheduled for 21st – 23rd October 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, continues to grow both vertically and horizontally as it adds new core products and services as well as more variety in an ever-changing global marketplace.

Organisers of the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo have reported that 761 exhibit booths have already been sold to 567 companies from throughout the US and 11 other nations around the world including Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey.
Susan Hurley, the expo general manager, comments: “Well over two thirds of our 2014 exhibiting companies have renewed their space for this year, plus we have gained 48 new companies and continue receiving new exhibit space applications regularly. We are delighted with the continuing growth of the Machinery & Tooling World area as well as the addition of more and more mill supply companies offering products of interest to today’s multi-line distributors. Whether you are at the Expo to buy, sell, learn, or network, it is the best place to be.”
