The 15th Fastener Trade Show Suzhou opened its gates at the Suzhou International Expo Center on Oct. 21st, 2015. The 3-day show gathered hundreds of fasteners and fixings companies from domestic China and other countries to exhibit their own premium quality products. Two exhibition halls were used for the show this year with enthusiastic attendance of exhibitors, demonstration of well-known brands, and visitors swarming in to make their inquiries. The business opportunities created in the show once again reveal the importance and attraction of the show.
During the first 6 months of 2015, Chinese fastener industry has exported USD 2.5 billion worth of fasteners to the world, and like for like value grew 4.04%. In terms of import, it has also imported USD 1.5 billion worth of fasteners during the same period, but like for like value declined 11.79%。As the global economy continues to face many uncertainties, the domestic Chinese market will of course face certain pressure. However, many exhibitors of the show remain optimistic about the future market development. This proves why in the opening day of the show there had been so many buyers coming to stands with inquiries and looking for new cooperative suppliers.
As the pioneer of giving a fastener show in China, this show did gather several specialized fastener brands (such as microGLEIT, Shitelao, and Washen) and industry leading machine & equipment suppliers (such as Ningbo Sijin, Jin-Chi Metal, Biing Feng, Zhejiang Yeswin, and JIancai) to exhibit their latest products, equipment, service, and technology.
