In the industrial landscape, we often dwell on the finished product, but behind every product there is a key part made up of trends, innovations and technologies that come to life during trade shows. This is also true for the fastener industry.

Trade fairs of interest to fastener manufacturers are specialized events that attract professionals and companies from all over the world. These events provide an opportunity to discover, present and uncover the most innovative products to their audiences, meet key players in the application sectors and create new opportunities; a time to learn from other professionals. Attending trade shows is always an exciting opportunity whether from the perspective of distributors, manufacturers or professional installers.

A unique opportunity for exchange and relationship

Even now, in the midst of the digital age, a company’s participation in a trade show is a highly effective tool for promoting its services and products and a unique networking opportunity. 

In fact, research by the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) shows that 99% of exhibitors find unique value offered by B2B trade shows not provided by other marketing channels. Trade shows allow exhibitors and attendees to talk face-to-face; this networking opportunity brings more conversions, more leads and more sales than other marketing events.

Training programs and workshops

In addition to the exhibition area, many trade fairs involving the fastener industry offer training programmes and workshops. These educational events are valuable for those who wish to deepen their knowledge and skills in the area of fastener solutions. Hands-on workshops allow participants to directly experience new tools, materials and techniques, while training sessions offer an in-depth overview of industry trends.
