The National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo scheduled for October 19-21, 2011 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada is reporting very strong interest and an unusual number of first-time exhibitors.
“We have sold 712 booths to nearly 539 companies from throughout the USA and 12 other nations around the world including Canada, China, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan and Vietnam. These numbers are well ahead of last year’s pace and we continue receiving new contracts and inquiries on a regular basis. We have added 56 new companies and the Machinery & Tooling area has grown to 38 companies. We expect to be well over 725 booths by show time”, informs Susan A. Hurley, CEM, the Expo’s General Manager.
“This year’s Expo has it all; a myriad of fasteners, machinery & tooling, inspection, testing and packaging equipment, cutting tools, drills, hand tools, computer systems and much more”, continues Ms. Hurley.
“The new, earlier, dates and Sands Expo & Convention Center location have proven to be very popular with our exhibitors and we believe these changes will be equally pleasing to Expo visitors. The Expo site as well as our official hotels are conveniently situated in the very heart of the Las Vegas Strip, which offers our exhibitors and show visitors a much wider selection of casinos, restaurants and entertainment venues all within walking distance. We completely sold out our original block of rooms at the Venetian/Palazzo and have increased our number of rooms there as well as at neighboring Harrah’s and nearby Caesars Palace”, say Jim Bannister and Mike McGuire, General Partners.
In addition to “North America’s Largest Fastener Expo”, the event includes a full day of conference programs featuring topics of vital, current interest as well as Fastener Training Institute workshops and a number of meetings on Wednesday, October 19th.
