Success for all involved
Europe’s leading trade exhibition for the fastener and fixing industry, Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2011, ended with record results.
n an enlarged exhibition area, covering 12,500 square metres net in three halls at Stuttgart’s exhibition grounds, 667 exhibitors from 40 countries showcased a comprehensive range of
products and services for the fastener and fixing industry. Visitors from all over the world made their way to Stuttgart
to discover the latest industry trends and to source new products and systems. Statistics provided by Mack Brooks Exhibitions show that 87% of attendees (who specified their country) came from the European Union, with Germany accounting for nearly 40%. Visitors came from as far as Australia and New Zealand, Brazil and Canada. For the first time the National Fastener Distributors Association from the USA organised a special delegation to the Fastener Fair. The range of exhibits included industrial fasteners and
fixings, construction fixings, assembly and installation systems, fastener manufacturing technology as well as storage and logistics services. Exhibiting companies and visitors alike praised the outstanding quality and international flavour of the exhibition. “We want to congratulate our exhibitors and visitors for
this success”, says Susanne Rauberger, exhibition director Fastener Fair, on behalf of the show organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “We are particularly delighted to be able to say that there was lively trading activity throughout the three show days and the mood was buoyant. A large number of exhibitors were able to report excellent sales figures,” explains Susanne Rauberger. A first analysis of the exhibitor survey, reported Mack
Brooks, showed that “an absolute majority of exhibitors were highly satisfied with the results of the trade show and most of this year’s exhibitors are already planning their participation at the next Fastener Fair Stuttgart which is set to take place from 26th
– 28th February 2013”.
