Exhibit profiles included standard/non-standard bolts, nuts, and screws; automotive, construction and aerospace fasteners; forming machines, heading machines, tapping machines; molds & dies, hardware, tools, measuring instruments and relevant fastener equipment. The show this year was not only bigger, but also was concurrently held with Asia’s largest wire & tube show (Wire China & Tube China), greatly enhancing the influence of the show to the industry. In addition, a more diversified and comprehensive range of professional end-users and buyers also came to visit the show and interact with exhibitors face to face. Around 30% of the exhibitors and visitors were from overseas regions. The 4-day event and other co-located shows attracted the attendance of about 1,700 exhibitors to showcase their latest products and service to visitors from around the world.
According to the onsite observation of Fastener World’s correspondent, “visitors were mostly coming for fastener manufacturers. Some visitors visiting our stand even asked about Fastener World’s online B2B system and how to use it. The show this year was quite vibrant. As China is the world’s largest fastener manufacturing country and the demand from the global fastener market is expected to increase greatly, the Asia Pacific Region will still be the largest regional market with potential and prospect that cannot be ignored.”
