Significant Exchange Results for Hardware, Tool & Fastener Industries
On June 6-8, +INDUSTRY 2023 was held Bilbao Exhibition Centre, the largest exhibition for smart manufacturing in Spain. The 3-day event attracted more than 750 exhibitors and thousands of industry professionals from both inside and outside of Spain. Exhibitors showcased a wide range of products and services focused on innovation and new technologies to enhance the competitiveness of their industries and create a more excellent performance of their services.
Halls 1 and 3 were open this time. The thematic exhibit areas included ADDIT3D, BeDIGITAL, MAINTENANCE, PUMPS&VALVES and SUBCONTRATACION as well as various industrial supply & hardware industry sectors and the WORKinn Talent Hub. +INDUSTRY 2023 also provided a very useful channel for visitors to learn about the latest trends in the industry.
The organizer also held nearly 30 industry exchanges and seminars during the 3-day exhibition, focusing on topics of great interest to the industry such as energy, 3D printing, digitization, automation, cybersecurity, sustainable management, green economy, robotics, etc.
According to Fastener World's on-site staff, this year's show was dominated by local Spanish exhibitors, but exhibitors from other European countries, Taiwan and China were also present. Machinery, tools, hardware, as well as fasteners and fixings were the focus of inquiries from visiting buyers. Many European traders and distributors also gained a better understanding of fastening products and companies from Taiwan through the actual magazine distribution at Fastener World's stand. Some of them also expressed that they were considering the possibility and opportunity to strengthen cooperation with Asian suppliers (e.g. Taiwanese companies) and would like to know more about what kind of services and assistance Taiwanese companies can offer them.
In view of the remarkable results of this year's show in promoting domestic and international industry exchanges and the turnover rate between buyers and sellers, the organizer has announced that the show will continue to be held at Bilbao Exhibition Centre on 03-05 June 2025.
