Transformed supply chains, the war in Ukraine, increased production costs, the introduction of CBAM, competition with countries with low production costs, investments in innovation and new technologies – these are the topics that manufacturers and distributors will discuss during FASTENER POLAND®, the international trade fair of fastener and fixing technology, which will take place on 18th – 19th October 2023 at EXPO Krakow, with a theme of ecology.
FASTENER POLAND® is a key forum for exchanging experiences, learning about new products, as well as building effective trade relations between companies from around the world. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown very clearly that face-to-face meetings cannot be replaced in business, with FASTENER POLAND® back to its pre-pandemic position.
In October, over 150 companies from 15 countries will present their companies and capabilities – presenting the most modern industrial fasteners and fittings (from screws, through rivets to nuts, pins or wedges), construction fasteners (anchors, concrete screws, fixing facades and insulation), advanced assembly and installation systems, as well as technologies for the production of fasteners and devices for their storage and distribution.
For 2023, FASTENER POLAND® organisers have directed the promotional campaign especially to industries with the greatest potential, such as photovoltaics, automotive, aviation, and the medical industry, which all have increasing demands for all types of fasteners and fixings. “For instance, Poland is among the top ten countries in the world in terms of the size of the photovoltaic market. In Europe, only Germany and Spain are ahead of us in this regard. The industry records continuous sales increases and is developing dynamically. Therefore, the demand for components is growing, in particular for specialised and quality fasteners,” explains FASTENER POLAND® organisers. “The fasteners market responds to these needs by designing and delivering the best solutions with enhanced resistance to difficult conditions in which solar systems are used. Several dozen manufacturers will present their solutions on a special zone at the show dedicated to this industry.”
In addition to inviting exhibitors and visitors to FASTENER POLAND®, the organisers (Targi w Krakowie Ltd) has created a program that combines business travel with leisure – Trend Bleisure (a word created from the combination of the words ‘business’ and ‘leisure’).
“Participants of the fair will be inspired by a map of attractions, which will include recommended accommodation, local restaurants, monuments, historic places and cultural centres,” mentions the organisers. “Since there is no shortage of interesting places in Krakow, we are sure that some customers will extend their stay to take in everything the city has to offer.”
A list of exhibitors, trade fair novelties, free registration for guests, hotel offers and a list of recommended restaurants and places worth visiting can be find on the show website.
