Fastener Fair USA 2018 invites speakers 15 November 2017

Fastener Fair USA is inviting industry professionals to submit proposals to participate in educational sessions scheduled for the show. The goal of these daily educational sessions will be to share industry developments, trends, case stories, and solutions applicable to the show’s core attendees – fastener and fixing end-users, distributors and wholesalers.

Taking place from 11th – 12th April 2018 at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, Fastener Fair USA will bring together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users focusing on fasteners and fixings, and joining technology. 

Mack Brooks Exhibitions, the organisers of the Fastener Fair shows worldwide, intends for the show to offer a unique opportunity to get the latest industry information, forecasts, and technical education with keynote sessions and breakouts.

“Fastener Fair USA is the only show in the USA for the entire fastener and fixing supply chain. Therefore, we plan to offer broad ranging educational sessions for all levels of experience, industry focus, and visitor segments,” said Melissa Magestro, executive vice president of Mack Brook Exhibition Inc.

The Fastener Training Institute (FTI) will be participating in the inaugural show, offering fastener product and technical training. FTI is committed to elevating the level of technical understanding and expertise of individuals in the fastener industry by providing a variety of training programmes presented by recognised industry experts. The Institute provides beginning and advanced training on fastener products, standards and specifications.

“The Fastener Training Institute is proud and pleased to partner with Mack Brooks to provide the fastener product training sessions at their upcoming Fastener Fair USA,” said John Wachman, president of the Institute. “This inaugural event will help us reach students from the fastener manufacturing, distribution and OEM markets. This new partnership is a great fit for both our enterprises as we support each other to serve the fastener industry and their users.”

To be considered, Fastener Fair USA invites all industry professionals to submit proposals on fastening and fixing technology, innovations, case stories, and solutions by 15th October 2017. The exhibition will be a unique opportunity to participate in high-level education and training taught by industry experts for the entire fastener supply chain, including OEM end users, distributors and wholesalers.
