According to the organizer, the 13th Fastener Shanghai Expo attracted more than 800 exhibitors and over 10,000 visitors to National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from June 5 to 7, with 56,000 square meters of exhibition space. The show featured a VIP meeting area for large-volume buyers as well as face-to-face matchmaking sessions for foreign businessmen. Some local exhibitors indicated that they had signed large orders from important overseas customers.
Fastener World’s staff onsite displayed the latest issue of China Fastener World Magazines and recommended suitable suppliers and Taiwanese companies having plants in China to visitors. Some visitors said the "2023 Suppliers Directory" included in the magazine saved them a lot of time and expense in product sourcing and supplier searching. This directory lists many high-quality and highly-rated fastener suppliers from China.
During the show, the 2nd “High-End Fastener Conference” was held, inviting more than 20 well-known companies from the fastener, automotive, inspection and aerospace industries to discuss the transformation of the fastener industry. Plus, there was a social event with the title: "The Road to Breakthrough for Fastener Distributors in the New Era". The next exhibition will be held again from March 20 to 22 next year.
