Organiser Mack Brooks reports that it has sold 80% of stand space for its biennial Fastener Fair in Germany, set to take place in May 2021.
After months of lockdown, companies in the fastener and fixing technology industry seem keen to launch and present their latest goods and services, 18–20 May at Messe Stuttgart.
Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2021 will occupy an additional fourth exhibition hall to meet the demand for space, and also see the return of the Bonding & Adhesives Technology Area in Hall 7.
Over the past 10 years, Fastener Fair Stuttgart has seen a doubling of both visitor numbers and net exhibition space, and the trend seems set to continue, despite Covid-19, with 623 exhibitors booked up for the 2021 show.
“We are very pleased to see so many companies booking with confidence as the industry moves forward to meet the growing demand of a post-pandemic economy,” says Liljana Goszdziewski, exhibition director of Fastener Fair Stuttgart.
“Fastener Fair Stuttgart is the leading event of the international fastener and fixing industry, and we are fully committed to offer our industry the marketplace it needs to respond to the rising demand for industrial fasteners over the coming years.”
The previous show in 2019 saw a record attendance of more than 12,000 trade visitors from 88 countries, seeking to make business with 987 exhibiting companies on a total net exhibition space of 22,200sqm.
