Taiwan International Fastener Show 26 February 2018

Fastener Taiwan will once again take place at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre, from 10th – 12th April 2018, representing the culmination of what Taiwanese fastener manufacturing has to offer. 

Fastener Taiwan is the only international B2B fastener show in Taiwan and serves as a trading platform for sourcing and procurement – featuring a complete range of fastener products.

Organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (MOEA) and Kaohsiung City Government – and implemented by the Taiwan Industrial Fastener Institute (TIFI) and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) – Fastener Taiwan 2018 promises to be the best show yet.

The previous show was fully subscribed with 402 exhibitors occupying the equivalent of 1,000 booths and completely filling both halls of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. Organisers reported that visitor numbers reached over 30,000 – 1,996 of which were overseas visitors. For the 2018 show, overseas visitors are expected to be over 2,000 with visitors taking the opportunity to attend the show whilst visiting suppliers in the local area. 

Taiwan ranks 3rd around the world in terms of the ‘state of cluster development’* and has become a cornerstone in the global fastener industry with its six decades of experience in raw material (annealing and stainless steel wire rod), fasteners (moulding, heat processing and surface processing) and marketing networks.

Taiwan fastener makers produce a broad spectrum of products ranging from fundamental to high-end, spanning nuts, bolts and screws for ICT, automotive, aerospace, medical care, construction, transportation, general machinery and precision instruments.

In addition to proven capacity for supplying custom-spec fastener products to the automobile, 3C, aerospace and medical industries, Taiwan’s key fastener players have formed the High-end Fastener Products R&D Alliance, with government support, to greatly boost capacity for supplying the high-end market.

The Taiwan Trade Centre London offers a pre-registration service to any UK visitors interested in attending, allowing a free entry badge with fast-track entry.
