by Tanya Shih, Fastener World Inc.
Hailed as the “largest fastener show in North America,” National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo held during 10/24 through 10/25 went beyond all attendees’ expectations and saw at least 600 exhibitors from 18 countries at the crowded venue with nearly 800 booths, showing 3% increase over the previous edition last year. General Manager Susan A. Hurley says in her short report that the Vegas Fastener Expo hits trifecta! And, exhibitors reported brisk business and were delighted. The show this year absolutely enjoyed a healthy increase in size and attendance.”
According to data released by the organizer after the show, 4,577 visitors from the domestic U.S. and other 37 countries came to attend the event, up 8% compared to the number recorded last year. Successful deals or potential big orders have been often heard during the show. Most participating exhibitors were really excited about having direct interactions and contacts with 2,103 distributors, importers, manufacturers, independent sales reps, and other buyers. The number of direct purchasers was also nearly 9% higher than last year.
How the economy is going can be often seen at a show. The joy for U.S. economic recovery also spread out to National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo 2013. Following this joyful atmosphere, the dates and location for the 2014 edition have been announced to be 10/22-24 at Sands Expo & Convention Center. Many exhibitors this year have already booked their booths in 2014. It is believed that the 2014 edition will break another new record again.
