Welcome to the 6th Fastener Trade Show! The show sees its opening on November 11. On behalf of the organizer, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to exhibitors, visitors, guests and friends from all over the world.
2011 is the first year of China’s 12 Five-Year Plan. In this year China’s fastener industry not only has many opportunities but also encounters lots of challenges. It’s estimated that the output of China’s fasteners reached 3.2 million tons with export volume of 1.2 million tons during the first half of 2011. However, the second half is predicted to slow down due to the turmoil of international markets, reminbi’s continuous appreciation, inflation, increasing production cost and the soaring material prices. Companies felt highly pressed for the mid- or long-term orders although they could receive some orders recently.
For the reasons above, the Fastener Trade Show, while focusing on providing the best platform for exhibitors to exhibit various kinds of fasteners and related products and attendees to communicate, is aiming to further help enterprises explore business opportunities and generate new profit.
The Fastener Trade Show has been held successfully for five editions since its first launch in 2008. The show is biannually held since 2010. The number of visitors and exhibitors has been keeping increasing and “the show is getting better and better” is always the comments from attendees. Popular, professional, a myriad of end-users and overseas buyers are the common adjectives describing the show.
To meet the developmental need of the market, China Fastener Info, the organizer of the show, chose Suzhou as the venue of the show in April for the first time. And 5th Fastener Trade Show attracted 305 companies with over 400 booths. The hall was packed with numerous visitors and 80 percent attendees felt satisfied or very satisfied. Again, on November 11-12, the 6th Fastener Trade Show kicks off, which makes the 2011 Fastener Trade Show total 600 exhibitors with over 800 booths, becoming the biggest and the most influential and popular fastener exhibition in China. There is no doubt that the Fastener Trade Show has become a grand festival and must-attend quality exhibition for buyers and suppliers all round the world.
