Since 1981, the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo (NIFMSE) has brought together manufacturers and master distributors of fasteners, precision formed parts, fastener machinery & tooling with distributors and sales agents in the distribution chain. From industrial to construction, electronic to automotive and aerospace, NIFMSE is the trade show where all varieties of distributors come to expand knowledge, see customers, build new relationships, and find new products.  Acquired by Emerald Expositions shortly after last year’s show, NIFMSE this year is shaping up to be an amazing show. This year there are a variety of informative sessions and networking opportunities.

As always we look forward to seeing the creativity that goes into the exhibitor booths. Booths are a chance for exhibitors to not only discuss their companies and products in addition to making sales, they are also a chance to catch the attention of passerby’s. 

For the last two years, Fastener News Desk has been hosting the Best Booth Awards (2014 & 2015). The Best Booth Awards have highlighted the most creative displays, booth representatives, and technologies to be showcased on the show floor.

This year we are bringing the Best Booth Awards back to the Las Vegas 2016 show. Be on the lookout for Fastener News Desk to stop by your booth!
