The 16th National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo scheduled for October 10-12, 2012 at the Sands Expo, Las Vegas, Nevada USA is enjoying record early sales; it was reported here today by Susan A. Hurley, CEM, General Manager.
“This is our strongest start ever with most of last year’s companies already under contract. We have 392 companies filling 589 booths. In addition, we have gained many new exhibiting companies including Associated Spring Raymond, Contora Components, Forest City Technology, Grand Industries, Lamons, Master Magnetics, Mitter Fasteners, Nitrex Heat Treating, Praxair Surface Technologies, Inc., Soling PHF S.L. and USA Fastener Group joining the Expo. We also have Anchor Bolt, Babu Exports, Engineered Components, Innovative Components, TE-CO and United Dowell Pin returning to the Expo after being absent last year. All of this is very positive, plus we continue to receive new exhibit space applications and inquiries on a daily basis. We fully expect the 2012 Expo to outperform last year’s event in both size and attendance”, informs Ms Hurley.
As usual, the Expo will not only offer the very latest products and services but, also, a full day of programs during the all-day conference on Wednesday, October 10. The Fastener Training Institute will be conducting several training workshops, the Pac-West Fastener Association will be sponsoring a program and Women in the Fastener Industry (WIFI) are planning a big meeting.
The always popular and well attended Welcoming Reception sponsored by Expo Management will again be held at Harrah’s Nevada Ballroom on Wednesday evening.
‘North America’s Largest Fastener Expo’ will be open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Thursday, October 11 and from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Friday, October 12.
