More than 76% of the exhibition space has already been reserved at Fastener Fair Italy 2020, driven by the positive market outlook for industrial fasteners and a good manufacturing sector.
The third International Exhibition for Fastener and Fixing Technology in Italy, taking place from 11 to 12 November 2020 in pavilion 3 at Fiera Milano City, provides a great networking opportunity for buyers and sellers in the industry. „Italy is the second largest fastener producer after Germany so places are filling up fast for the 2020 fair.
Over 100 exhibitors have booked their stand from 8 countries,” Olivia Griscelli, Exhibition Director of Fastener Fair Italy said, on behalf of the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions Ltd. They include Italian companies Berardi Bullonerie Srl, a supplier of both custom and standard screws and bolts, as well as machinery manufacturer Dimac Srl and screw, rivet and stud fastener firm Corbetta & C SNC. Foreign exhibitors include German electronic parts supplier Ettinger GmbH, pgb-Europe nv from Belgium, a fastener, screw and fixing producer, as well as Rotor Clip s.r.o from the Czech Republic, a manufacturer of clamps, wave springs and rings. „With such high quality products on display, this unique fair attracts trade visitors from the aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, construction, energy, marine, agricultural and mechanical engineering industries. At the last show in 2018, as many as 2,700 visitors came from 63 countries to see 214 exhibitors from 14 countries,” Olivia Griscelli added. Visitors to Fastener Fair Italy 2018 included global players like Ducati Motor Holding, the motorcycle-manufacturing division of Italian company Ducati, as well as well-known appliance manufacturers Electrolux and De’Longhi, and technical specialists from IKEA Components.
The 3rd edition of Fastener Fair Italy comes at a good time, with buyers looking to step up their purchases to meet increasing demand. Italian industrial fastener sales are set to rise by 2.3% annually from 2020 to 2025, reaching $2.3 billion, making it the third largest market in Europe after Germany and France, a study by the Freedonia Group reveals. This is fuelled by a strong manufacturing and export sector, with Italy being the second largest manufacturer in the EU after Germany and second largest machinery producer in Europe, all of which use fasteners. Fastener Fair Italy is part of a series of targeted trade events for the fastener and fixing industry, including Fastener Fair Turkey, Fastener Fair India, Fastener Fair France, Fastener Fair Mexico and Fastener Fair USA. Fastener Fair Stuttgart, Germany, is the global flagship exhibition of the Fastener Fair brand.
