by Tanya Shih, Fastener World Inc.
For 3 consecutive years since the first edition kicked off in 2012, Fastener Fair Russia 2015 opens at EXPOFORUM Convention and Exhibition Centre during March 25-27, 2015. This Fair has its own characteristics and stands as the most professional fastener fair in Russia taking place in St. Petersburg and Moscow by turns. The Fair displays industrial fasteners, construction fasteners, fastener manufacturing technology, processing, packaging equipment, etc.
Fastener World Inc., the sales agent in Taiwan for the Fair organizer, has been assisting interested Taiwanese fastener and hardware suppliers to deploy and promote in the Russian market for 3 straight years. Taiwanese exhibitors of the 2015 edition are Home Soon (for sockets, tools, and bits), Wan Iuan (for molds and punches), Filrox (for blind rivets and blind nuts), Wei Zai (for nuts and automotive components), and Hua Wei (for cable ties). Our correspondent reports the first day of the show: “As the organizer predicted in regard to visitor type and level of specialty, every three in five visitors are decision makers and procurers, who make inquires based on their demands. Although we won’t see this Fair packed with tons of people, the feedback from many professional visitors reveals that the show is charismatic for its quality. Taiwanese exhibitors and I are looking forward to the upcoming efficacy the Fair may bring about.”
