by Tanya Shih, Fastener World Inc.
The 3rd edition of Fastener Fair India, Mumbai in 2015, benefited by the successful results of the previous two editions, attracted thousands of visitors and exhibitors in the crowded venue in the opening day. “The success of the fair this year was more than expected and almost every aisle was crowded with buyers visiting each stand to make their inquiries. Different from the last two editions in which equipment suppliers were the main focus of visitors, the edition this year showed more inquiries about screws, bolts, nuts, and washers, signifying more business opportunities for selling fasteners to India. Exhibitors this year also said that they have confidence in orders that may be created from the fair,” Fastener World’s representative at the fair reports.
The biennially held Fastener Fair India took place from April 23 to 24 this year and was concurrently held with Blech India (a sheetmetal working exhibition). A lot of good news had been heard since the 1st day. The 2015 edition attracted 127 exhibitors supplying finished fasteners, machines, molds, materials, surface treatments and so on from India(64), China(44), Germany(2), Turkey(1), Italy(1), Malaysia(1), and USA(1) on 150 booths in total.
Visitors of the fair were all professional buyers and 100% of them were manufacturers, importers, dealers, and distributors from the fastener industry with years of experience in buying products from other countries (e.g. China and Taiwan). Self-drilling screws, anchors, SEMS screws, fastener manufacturing machines were frequently inquired products in the 2-day fair.
Taiwanese exhibitors this year led by Fastener World Inc. were San Shing Fastech, Wan Iuan, Home Soon, China Pneumatic, Chao Jing (Mega Link), Par Excellence, Yeswin, and Chien Tsai.
The organizer also announced after the fair that the next edition in 2016 will be moved to Dehli in the northwestern India, as more fastener related industries are located around the city. It is expected that more fastener buyers will come to visit the fair in 2016, creating more business opportunities.
