Around 170 leading suppliers of fastener and fixing products, technologies and services are making their final preparations for this month’s Fastener Fair Italy show in Milan.

Opening its doors at the city’s MiCo – Milano Congressi on 28 and 29 September, the event is the latest in a highly successful series of international Fastener Fairs bringing together manufacturers of fasteners and fastener production systems, distributors and end-users.

Companies from 12 countries will be taking part in the event. Around three-quarters of these are from Italy, with France, Germany, Spain, Turkey, the UK and the US among other nations represented. For the latest list of exhibitors go to: http://www.fastenerfairitaly.com/exhibitor-list

Broad visitor appeal

With Italy ranked as Europe’s second largest manufacturing economy after Germany, the exhibition provides a great opportunity for managers, engineers and buyers from the country’s key industrial sectors such as automotive manufacturing, aerospace, energy generation & distribution, and marine and engineering industries to meet companies at the forefront of fastener technology and discover their latest innovations.

Fastener Fair Italy will also attract visitors from vital consumer-oriented industries such as white goods manufacturing and furniture-making, plus the important construction fixings market. And distributors and resellers of fasteners and fixings will form a further significant portion of show visitors.

Exhibition Director Olivia Griscelli says: “Fasteners and related products have an important role in virtually every area of industry. This is a highly competitive market, and one that sees frequent innovations. By visiting Fastener Fair Italy, managers and engineers have a unique opportunity to engage face-to-face with suppliers to learn what’s new and how they might get the best deals for their organisations.”

Free-to-attend seminars

Visitors to Fastener Fair Italy will also be able to attend free seminars providing valuable insights into technical and regulatory issues currently affecting the fasteners market. Devised by Show Partner Fasten.it (http://www.fasten.it/en/ ) in collaboration with event organiser Mack Brooks Exhibitions, the programme features seminars on both days of the show.

“Distribution of Fasteners: Market Changes and Technological Innovation” is the topic of a seminar by Bruno Troiano of Frontline Consulting on 28 September.

On 29 September a presentation by Barbara Sorgato, General Secretary of the European Consortium of Anchors Producers entitled “Structural Anchors and Construction Products Regulation” will examine major changes in the CE marking of European construction products.

And on the same day three speakers, Jean-Paul Amaro of French fasteners and wire manufacturer UGIVIS and Fausto Capelli and Paolo Viganò of Centro Inox in Milan, will discuss aspects of the outlook for the stainless steel fasteners sector.
