2019 International Fastener Expo
Show Title

International Fastener Expo

Date 2019/09/18-2019/09/19
Venue

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Bayside D-E

Frequency Annually

     
     The North America’s largest B2B trade event was held at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Bayside D-E on September 17-19 this year. The organizer arranged full-day Sessions lectured by keynote speakers and a welcoming dinner gala on 09/17 and also arranged many industrial activities on 09/18-19. More than 800 exhibitors from America, Europe and Asia interested in tapping into U.S. fastener market gathered in Las Vegas for attending the annual grand fastener event.


     In addition to domestic U.S. exhibitors, foreign exhibitors from Taiwan, India, Korea and China all had their own pavilions at the show and showcased their finished/semi-finished fasteners, tooling, machinery, etc, making IFE’19 a must-attend show this year. Distinguished from the previous edition which opened at 10:00 a.m., the show opened 2 hours earlier for the Source Global and Machinery & Tooling areas this year, giving visitors more time to meet and intereact face to face with these exhibitors. On the other hand,  topics lectured in the Sessions were also very informative and educational and attendees had in-depth discussions with speakers about several issues most concerned by the industry, such as surface treatment, antidumping, 3D printing, product innovation, online marketing, product testing & inspection and many others.  “Hall of Fame” for 2019 was presented to Ed McIlhon and Martin “Marty” Nolan, and “Young Fastener Professinal of the Year” was presented to Baron Yarborough to recognize their respective contributions to the industry. Three of them were honored by the IFE organizer on 09/18 at the Sessions Corner in the show floor.


     Taiwan Pavilion represented by Fastener World was the largest international exhibitors group this year. During the 3-day event, nearly 80 exhibitors from Taiwan presented to U.S. maket their excellent metal processing technology and high-quality fastners and relevant machinery, which drew the attention of many U.S. purchasers seeking for further collaboration.  Several U.S. told Fastener World that, due to the escalating trade tension between the U.S. and China and the worldly-known advantages of products supplied by Taiwan, they would consider strengthening their sourcing from Taiwan.  Many Taiwanese exhibitors also noted that they saw a significant increase in the number of visitors this year and expressed great confidence and expectations for future order intakes.  


     The U.S. has been one of the main fastener markets to the global fastener suppliers for long and International Fastener Expo is one of the best shortcuts to this lucrative market. IFE is scheduled to take place again on September 29-30, 2020 and it is expected that there will be a significant increase in the number of exhibitors next year.
