The first edition of Fastener Fair France has recently ended and it has been a success. For two days on Nov 28-29, managers, heads of department, buyers and engineers largely from the automotive, distribution, aerospace, mechanical engineering, hardware/DIY, agricultural machinery and maintenance/repair sectors came to the show. A good share of the 1500 visitors included many manufacturers and users, with representatives from Airbus, Renault, Restagraf, Ligier Group, Dassault, Ariane Group, Würth, Fischer, Bufab, Agrati, Arconic, Fontana, Robert Bosch, Sika France, British Steel, RATP, Henkel France, VoestAlpine, or Voith Turbo.
Highlighting the international nature of the Fair: the event managed to establish itself as a major meeting point for all those who are interested in fasteners and fixing technologies, with 46 countries represented and 36% of visitors from outside France. Among the 161 exhibitors, Europe had a major presence, with a strong representation from Italian, German, Spanish, Turkish, Belgian, Dutch, English and Portuguese players.
Post Fair feedback appears to be very positive: the majority of the exhibitors praised the quality of the visitors, resulting in qualified appointments, and some have already expressed their will to attend a second edition in 2020.
