DETROIT—Close to 2,200 fastener professionals participated in the second annual Fastener Fair USA here in late May, surpassing its inaugural show last year in Cleveland. More than 260 exhibitors from 15 countries connected with customers in the aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, construction, energy, machinery and other industries.
Along with more than 25 educational sessions, Fastener Fair USA 2019 included a number of industry networking events, such as a first-ever Women in the Fastener Industry-hosted mentorship program called ConnectHer. This program gave an opportunity for people seeking insight and information about the industry to connect with the women in the field.
“There was something for everyone in the industry at Fastener Fair USA,” says Baron Yarborough of Spring Bolt and Nut Manufacturing and Young Fastener Professionals.
The next Fastener Fair USA will be held May 2020 at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina. More than 50 Detroit exhibitors secured space for the Charlotte event, with 25 percent of the floor being rebooked for 2020.
