Fastener Fair USA 2020 will be postponed due to the COVID-19 virus. The Show, scheduled for 18th – 20th May at the Charlotte, North Carolina Convention Center, has been rescheduled for 13th – 15th July 2020 and will remain in Charlotte.
Randy Field, Group vice-president at Reed Exhibitions, explained: “Our number one priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff. Postponement is never an easy decision. However, after consulting our customers, closely monitoring developments and reviewing guidance from public health officials, including the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO), we have decided it is in the best interest of all our Fastener Fair community. We look forward to getting back to business and reconnecting the industry in Charlotte in July.”
Since bringing Fastener Fair to the United States in 2018, Fastener Fair USA has been the all-inclusive event where all levels of the fastener supply chain and other industry leaders from around the globe come together to move their business forward in a constantly evolving industry.
“As we face challenging times, we feel that we need to band together as an industry to continue the long tradition of networking, new sourcing, education and learning best practices at a common time and place” said Bob Chiricosta, event director for the Fastener Fair USA Show.
