The Shanghai Greater Hongqiao Area is destined to become the focus of the fastener industry in China and even the world in June, 2018. After 8 years of unremitting efforts, Fastener Expo Shanghai 2018 has been successfully created as one of the global fastener platforms.

With growing influence of the Expo, one Expo will be organized with the name of the industry association, and the other similar one would be hold in the same period and venue as our previous edition, showing the rapid development and unlimited business opportunities in China's fastener industry. As the organizer of the Expo facing intense competition, we know that it is also an opportunity for us to continue to improve and develop our core competitiveness to build a better commercial bridge for exhibitors and visitors.

One of the world's three largest fastener exhibitions
According to the organizer, "The scale of expo and the number of exhibitors are the core competitiveness that attracts nearly 25,000 visitors from 80 countries and regions at home and abroad. This core competitiveness is the solid foundation for the success of the Expo since its establishment, and it is also driven by purchasing demands of many domestic and foreign buyers visiting the Expo".

It is expected that moving the Expo 2018 to the new exhibition venue will solve the problem of insufficient fastener product exhibition area. The National Convention and Exhibition Center has the largest exhibition area as a single building, so fastener product enterprises and fastener equipment can be arranged in two different exhibition halls. It is expected that the Expo size will hit a new record high, creating its own competitive advantages over other international exhibitions.

The following is the number of exhibitors in the world's top three fastener exhibitions (data all from the expos' official website):
 Fastener Expo Shanghai 2017 / 742 enterprises
 Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2017 / 896 enterprises
 The National Industrial Fastener Mill Supply Expo 2017 / 850 enterprises

Participation of international brands
The Fastener Expo Shanghai 2018, which will be held at the National Convention and Exhibition Center next year, also features another unique advantage – the participation of about 100 overseas brands from 14 countries and regions. In 2017, Hongkong exhibitors and exhibitors from France were added. Most of these overseas enterprises are fastener brands that have enjoyed an international reputation, and the annual exhibition is the first choice for them to enter the Chinese market.

For example, the fastener production enterprises: Japanese socket center, American ND, French Gardette, German Inovan; moreover, the fastener production equipment enterprises: German Wafios, British Aerospace, Italian Sacma, Japanese AsahiSunac, etc. The Expo is really a global brand event, and will bring more diverse and international trade choices to visitors. And it is also convenient for domestic fastener enterprises to get to know the advanced technologies and products of fasteners in the world.
