According to our correspondent at the show, exhibitors this year were mostly manufacturers while traders and distributors were the 2nd largest exhibiting group. Overseas visitors were mainly from USA, the Middle East, Turkey, Italy, India, Japan, and Hong Kong, interested in purchasing bolts, nuts, screws, washers, electric tools, industrial fasteners, rivets, equipment, toolings & dies, materials, and surface treatments.
Since the 1st show held in 2010, the number of exhibitors of the show has been increasing year after year.
