by Melissa Magestro

We are getting excited! Every week, new exhibitors, educational sessions and events are being added to Fastener Fair USA, scheduled for April 11-12, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. It is really shaping up to be a show you can’t miss for a variety of reasons.

Fastener Fair USA’s goal is to bring together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and end users for the region’s only dedicated fastener, fixing and joining technology exhibition. The show offers a firsthand look at the latest solutions and technology available in the marketplace, as well as top-notch educational programs developed and delivered by industry experts.

Why Attend Fastener Fair USA?

Fastener Fair USA 2018 will be the meeting place for fastener professionals, and it is conveniently located in the heart of the Midwest manufacturing region.

“As manufacturers, we are very happy that we have seen a big influx of energy and interest as well as an increase in business in American made products,” said Luann Racca, Assistant Sales Manager at Superior Washer & Gasket Corporation. “That Fastener Fair is hosting a version here in the U.S. further exemplifies this interest in U.S. manufacturing.”

For exhibitors, the show offers a unique platform for meeting with new and current customers, finding distributors, identifying engineering opportunities, and networking with fastener and fixing industry professionals throughout the entire supply chain. It’s a model that is new to the U.S. market, but one that has been successful around the world for many years at other Fastener Fair shows.

For attendees, we will make it easy to discover and connect with manufacturers of industrial fastener, fixing, and joining solutions, leading to collaborations to solve their product design business challenges. No matter where you are in the supply chain, you’ll see the latest technologies, innovations, and solutions for your business all in one place.

The top three reasons to attend are:

1. Exhibitors Covering the Entire Supply Chain – One stop shopping. Find solutions to your business challenges all in one location, no matter where you are in the fastener and fixing supply chain.

2. Unique Industry Education and Insights – Get the latest industry information, forecasts, and technical education with keynote sessions and breakouts.

3. Connect and Collaborate with Industry Peers – Meet and build relationships with other professionals in your industry. The welcome reception on April 11 will take place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Since the show is designed to offer something for everyone in the fastener and fixing supply chain, industry professionals won’t want to miss this inaugural 2-day event.

The floor map is available on the website so visitors can start to plan their visit and see the full list of exhibitors committed to date. To learn more about Fastener Fair USA, visit www.fastenerfair.com/usa or call +1 866-899-4728.
