As part of a series of internationally renowned shows dedicated exclusively to fastener and fixing technologies, Fastener Fair Italy attracted the attendance of around 200 professional manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers from Italy, Turkey, Germany, etc. to showcase their latest products, technologies and service, including industrial fasteners and fixings, construction fixings, assembly and installation systems, fastener manufacturing technology, storage/distribution/factory equipment, etc.
This fair held in Italy where there is a vibrant fastener industry provided very good opportunities and played a significant role in helping participating companies present latest products, meet new and existing customers and establish business partnership, not to mention the fact that so many Italian leading brands considered the show a must-attend fair in their annual event calendar.
According to Fastener World’s onsite correspondent this year, “Italy has the 2nd largest manufacturing industry in the EU and the 6th in the world. Machinery & electrical equipment and semi-finished products represent over 50% of its total manufacturing revenues. Some analysts forecast that Italy’s fastener market will reach around 77 billion to 91 billion euros by 2020. Major fastener markets in Italy are machinery, automotive, aerospace, other transport, domestic goods and appliances and construction.”
