The annually held Fastener Fair USA has returned to Detroit with a physical event held on May 18-19 at Huntington Place. Being a professional tradeshow dedicated to the whole fastener supply chain (incl. manufacturers, distributors, equipment fabricators, mechanical & design engineers, processors, purchasers, distributors, OEM, packaging service providers, and end-users), the event this year attracted the attendance of professionals from automotive, aerospace, construction, furniture, electronic appliances, and many other industry sectors to look for the latest fasteners and learn about relevant industrial trends and market development intelligence.
124 exhibitors from various countries came to showcase their industrial fasteners and fixings, construction fixings, assembly and installation system,
fastener manufacturing technology, storage, distribution, factory equipment
services (coating/packaging...), information and communication. In addition, several well-known specialists from within the industry were also invited to give thematic sessions on relevant fastener technology, logistics, electroplating, etc. and associations also gave their own activities for further interaction. This tradeshow provided the best opportunity and platform for all participants to meet each other, strengthen collaboration, and deepen multilateral interaction.
The worldly known marketing press dedicated to the fastener and hardware industries, Fastener World Inc., which exhibited in person this year, also made the most of this opportunity to conduct deep communication with local buyers, simultaneously share with the world with the latest industrial intelligence through our multiple publications (incl. Fastener World, China Fastener World, Hardware & Fastener Components, Emerging Fastener Markets, etc.), and introduce superior suppliers of products, equipment, and relevant service from the world to local potential purchasers. Other Taiwanese exhibitors this year also included BBI and Angelray.
According to the observation of our staff onsite, although the number of visitors to Fastener Fair USA this year was not as many as observed in the last few editions due to reasons like pandemic control measures and travel restrictions, most buyers and visitors coming to Fastener World’s booth were from relevant industries and fields. As a result, we could ensure0 that all printed copies brought to the show were handed out to buyers with significant demand. The high demand for Fastener World publications at the show also revealed our long-term leading position in the global fastener industry and the fact that we were doing whatever we could to create opportunities for our advertisers to gain more exposure at every important international tradeshow.
According to the organizer of Fastener Fair USA, the next edition will be relocated to Music City Center, Nashville, TN on May 16-17, 2023.
