As visitor registration opens for Fastener Fair Italy, organisers have confirmed that the total number of exhibitors planning to take part has reached 200.
Once again being held at the MiCo – Milano Congressi from 26th – 27th September 2018, Italy’s fastener sector continues to support Fastener Fair Italy, accounting for three-quarters of firms that have so far confirmed their participation.
Among them are many of the well known producers and distributors of fasteners, as well as leading specialists in fastener manufacturing technology such as Ambrovit SpA, Carlo Salvi SpA, Ingramatic SpA, Vital Srl, VIPA SpA and more.
Joining them will be companies from 13 other countries, including Germany – represented by Lederer GmbH, Fastbolt GmbH and others; Teknoform Fasteners and Kaleliler Bağlanti Elemanlari from Turkey; Spanish companies Chavesbao and INDEX Fixing Systems; Lancaster Fastener Co Ltd from the UK and National Machinery LLC from the USA.
To accommodate more exhibitors and visitors, the show is being staged in the larger South Hall of MiCo, occupying both the ground floor (Level 0) and the upper floor (Level +1). This will provide extra space for an open access ‘Seminar Theatre’, ‘Media Point’, restaurants and sitting areas on both levels, all of which is aimed at facilitating business networking and enhancing visitor experience.
Visitors from key industrial sectors
The high-level of interest in this exhibition, which is the only trade show in Italy exclusively dedicated to fastener and fixing technology, reflects the country’s position as Europe’s second largest manufacturing economy after Germany. It also underlines Italy’s role as a major exporter of fastener products.
Distributors and resellers of fasteners and fixings will represent a significant portion of visitors to the show, strengthening vital trading links between manufacturers and end users. During the previous edition of Fastener Fair Italy in 2016, 39% of attendees were distributors or suppliers of fastener products to users; 32% were fasteners or fixings manufacturers; 25% were wholesalers or suppliers to resellers; and 16% were fastener or fixings users.
The exhibition is a must-attend event for managers, engineers and buyers from key industrial sectors including automotive manufacturing, aerospace, energy generation and distribution, marine industries. Exhibitor products will also be targeted at important consumer-oriented industries, such as white goods manufacturing and furniture making, plus the important construction fixings market.
