Mack Brooks launches Fastener Fair USA 2018
31 May 2017
Mack Brooks Exhibitions Group, organisers of the Fastener Fair exhibitions taking place globally, has announced the launch of Fastener Fair USA. The first edition of this unique industrial fastener and fixing show will take place 11th – 12th April 2018 at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
Fastener Fair USA will be the premier event bringing together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users in the region’s only dedicated fastener, fixing, and joining technology exhibition. The show will offer a first-hand look at the latest solutions and technology available in the marketplace, as well as a top-notch educational programme developed and delivered by industry experts. There will also be networking events to facilitate relationships and collaborations with industry peers.
“The idea to bring Fastener Fair to the US market originated within the fastener industry” said Melissa Magestro, executive vice-president of Mack Brook Exhibitions Inc. “There is an increased need to find new technologies and suppliers in the US, and fastener OEMs and distributors are looking for a platform to showcase their solutions. We are bringing the Fastener Fair experience to the heart of the Midwest manufacturing region.”
Forecasts for GDP growth remain steady through 2020, and industrial manufacturing within the US continues to be strong. According to a study on industrial fasteners by the Freedonia Group, published in May 2016, the US market for industrial fasteners is expected to increase 2.6% per year to US$15.2 billion (€14 billion) in 2020.
A unique feature of Fastener Fair USA will be the Fasteners Direct Pavilion, where manufacturers can showcase their solutions for OEM engineers, designers, buyers and R&D professionals all in one convenient location. The show will also offer exclusive technical education sessions specifically to address the product design challenges of OEM end users.
Exhibitors from around the world are expected to participate in the inaugural Fastener Fair USA 2018. The main product categories include industrial fasteners and fixings, construction fixings, assembly and installation systems, fastener manufacturing technology, storage, distribution, and factory equipment.
