Return this month to Las Vegas looks very good for fastener trade show

Organizers of the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo, to be held Oct. 23-25, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, are very optimistic.

""We have sold 780 booths compared to last year's final total of 770 and are still receiving exhibit space inquiries and contracts on a regular basis," General Manager Susan A. Hurley said in a press release. There are already 600 companies in the Expo from throughout the U.S. as well as 18 other nations, including Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and Vietnam, she said. "We are especially pleased that 94 of these companies are either new or returning to the Expo after a four-year absence. We may reach 80,000 net sq ft of exhibit space by 'ShowTime', making this year's event the largest since 2008."

Event General Partners Jim Bannister and Mike McGuire said that while a number of the conference sessions are free to Expo exhibitors and attendees, the event will also feature some additional programs being offered by the Fastener Training Institute, Pacific-West Fastener Association and WIFI that "are well worth the modest additional cost."

To date, registration for the Expo has been strong, reported Registration Supervisor Erin Thomas, who favors use of online registration at "We encourage everyone to register in advance, not only to save money but, also, to avoid wasting valuable time by standing in long lines at the Expo."

Thomas said that she was pleased "to see how many fastener manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales reps are signing up for the information and education-packed conference program being offered on Wednesday and Thursday."

The trade show, which is billed as "North America's Largest Fastener Expo,"  is open from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Thursday, Oct. 24. and from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Friday, Oct. 25. The complete program, including trade show and conference information, and registration, can be accesed at
