Fastener Fair Italy 2018 – bigger and better

Fastener Fair Italy 2018 – bigger and better

There’s keen industry interest in Fastener Fair Italy 2018, which takes place on 26 and 27 September 2018 and is set to be even bigger and better than the first event two years ago. Fastener Fair Italy 2018 is being held at MiCo – Milano Congressi in the centre of Milan. Italy is Europe’s second-largest manufacturing economy, second-largest producer of fasteners and a leading exporter of fastener and fixing products.

Being staged in MiCo’s larger South Hall to accommodate more exhibitors and visitors, Fastener Fair Italy 2018 is dedicated to presenting and promoting new fastener and fixing products and technologies. The show brings together the manufacturers of fasteners, fastener production systems and stock management technologies; materials suppliers; distributors; resellers; and end-users.

Fastener Fair Italy enables participants to meet face to face, see and ensure the quality of products at first hand, source and sell products and services, arrange factory visits, initiate and strengthen business partnerships, and build trade networks – and all under one roof.

Build-up to Fastener Fair Italy 2018
So far 170 companies have confirmed their participation at Fastener Fair Italy 2018, 126 of which attended the show in 2016, and 44 of which are newcomers. Companies from 12 countries are taking part, with the many big-name and smaller exhibitors from Italy being joined by exhibitors from France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Commenting on the build-up to Fastener Fair Italy 2018, Exhibition Director Olivia Griscelli said: “Buoyed by the huge success of the last show, which attracted 2,600 high-level buyers, engineers and managers from 58 countries, this time we’re expecting even more exhibitors and visitors. We’re seeing great interest in participation, strong demand and confidence in the industry, and this is all helped by healthy economic growth in markets worldwide.”          

Wide range of industries
Exhibitors will be aiming their products and services at many industries, including aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, construction, energy, marine, and mechanical engineering.

Particular applications and markets include agricultural and off-road machinery, consumer goods, electrical and telecoms equipment, furniture manufacturing, heating ventilation and air conditioning, sanitary ware and plumbing, and do-it-yourself retail.
