China International Hardware Show was held on October 10-12, 2019 at National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). It was also co-located with China International Building Hardware & Fasteners Show and China International Locks & Security Doors Show. These three busy shows attracted the enthusiastic attendance of visitors. The booth of Fastener World was located in Hall 1.2 (the zone for hardware and tools), where a comprehensive range of tools, building hardware, fasteners, locks & security doors were showcased.
Around 70% of the visitors coming to Fastener World’s booth were looking for hardware, pneumatic tools, while the rest were looking for fasteners. Many overseas visitors came to skim through and ask for our free China Fastener Magazine. Local Chinese visitors were mostly traders, manufacturers and purchasers. In addition, many visitors told our correspondent on-site that due to the influence of U.S.-China trade war and the increased tariffs U.S. imposed on China, their business was greatly impacted.
During the event, the organizer also held a 2019 professional industry forum to boost visitors’ understanding of the Chinese hardware market. European DIY Retail Association (EDRA) and Global Home Improvement Network (GHIN) representative Oliver Ginestier was invited to talk about the current development of the hardware industry. Executive Chairman of China National Hardware Association (CNHA), Vice President of eBay and many other authoritative characters were also invited to give their thematic speeches.
The organizer also arranged a Match & Meet Program. Visitors only needed to submit their requests and the system would match the demands of exhibitors with the pre-registered visitors and arrange respective one-on-one meetings during the event.
