Organisers of Fastener Fair Turkey – taking place at the IFM – Istanbul Expo Centre, Istanbul, from 1st – 3rd March 2018 – have announced that Hall 9 of the show is already 98% booked, with Hall 10 also filling up fast.
The fourth edition of Fastener Fair Turkey will bring together producers, wholesalers, resellers/distributors, end users of fastener systems for both industrial and construction applications, as well as suppliers of fastener manufacturing equipment and materials, to find out the latest developments in the fastener and fixing sector.
For the first time Fastener Fair Turkey will be held on three days including a Saturday, which organisers explain should increase the number of visitors from the Asian side of Turkey. The 2018 show has already reached the same size as the last edition, with more than 150 exhibitors already confirming their presence at the show – including companies from Turkey, France, Germany, South Korea, Italy, India, Israel, Spain, Japan, USA, China and Taiwan.
The 2016 edition attracted over 1,700 visitors from 39 countries, representing the automotive sector, construction/civil engineering, hardware, mechanical engineering, electrical products/domestic appliances, agricultural/off highway machinery, distribution, furniture manufacturing, heating/ventilation/air conditioning, and the aerospace industry.
Of those companies exhibiting at Fastener Fair Turkey 2016, 65% are returning for the 2018 show. “This positive response both from past exhibitors and new companies indicates the popularity of this established event in Istanbul,” comments Olivia Griscelli, exhibition director at organisers Mack Brooks Fuarcilik AS. “Fastener Fair Turkey is a great opportunity to boost brand awareness in a market that is growing in importance within the fastener and fixing industry.”
Olivia continues: “The show enables exhibitors to have face-to-face contact with new customers, as well as nurture relationships with existing companies. It is also a great opportunity to introduce new products and technologies into the Turkish market.”
Further information on Fastener Fair Turkey 2018, including a full exhibitor list and how to book a stand, is available on the show website.
