At Fastener Fair – Budapest, which opens on September 6th of this year, visitors can look forward to a comprehensive range of products and services covering all sectors of fastener technology. 197 companies from around the world will participate at this year’s event at the SYMA Exhibition Centre. Almost fully booked two months ahead of opening, this year’s Fastener Fair – Budapest is considerably larger than the previous event and will, for the first time, include a special market outlook forum.
"This is set to be an outstanding show, with over 95% of stand space already booked a good two months before the event opens. This testifies to the new confidence developing in the market, which benefits our exhibitors and visitors alike," said Jamie Mitchell, Director of Fastener Fair – Budapest.
All indicators point towards growth for this specialist fastener technology show, held in the Hungarian capital for the second time. Leading regional and international suppliers of fasteners, anchors and fixings will be present and the range of fastener products for the construction and civil engineering sectors in particular has increased. The list of exhibits on display at the exhibition ranges from materials and manufacturing technologies to finished products such as screws and bolts, nuts, rivets, thread inserts, anchors, rings, springs, clamps and clips; plus special designs based on drawings and made from a wide range of materials. Bonding processes, surface technology and quality assurance will also be featured, with assembly technology and production equipment for fasteners rounding off the range.
The market outlook forum is a new addition to Fastener Fair – Budapest and will offer a unique opportunity to hear and pose questions to a renowned regional business environment professor and leaders from both fastener manufacturing and distribution.
As the gateway to the markets in central and eastern Europe, Fastener Fair – Budapest is a unique marketing platform that has very quickly established itself as an important fixture on the industry’s calendar. Target groups for the show include industrial buyers, the construction industry and civil engineering, as well as the hardware and DIY retail sector.
The bilingual (Hungarian/English) website for Fastener Fair – Budapest (www.fastenerfair.hu) is constantly updated and offers an interactive list of exhibitors, plus free online visitor registration, a feature which is now being much used. The website also offers advice on travel to and from the show, plus links for hotel bookings.
Companies wishing to exhibit at Fastener Fair – Budapest are advised to contact the organisers’ office without delay to discuss the remaining stand options available. Registration details and a registration form can be downloaded from the website.
Technical information for exhibitors can also be found on the internet and the online exhibitor manual has all the relevant details, forms and deadlines. In addition, exhibitors can integrate their corporate profile into the list of exhibitors, thereby establishing initial contact with potential customers long before the show.
"Through Fastener Fair – Budapest we reach not only the major players in this market, but also a wide range of engineers, buyers and businessmen who rarely visit exhibitions outside of their region. However, these visitors represent an enormous sales potential and their information requirements are also high. As a location Budapest is easy to reach from right across the region and away from the hectic of the exhibition, the city has much to offer," commented Jamie Mitchell, highlighting another important aspect of the show.
