The National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo (NIFMSE), announced last year that the largest fastener event in North America will be moving from the Sands Expo & Convention Center to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall starting with the Fall 2017 show that will take place on October 17-19, 2017.
The show, which has seen significant growth in the last year since Emerald Expositions’ acquisition, will expand from two and a half days to three full days of
conferences and exhibition. This year the educational track will take place on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 and the exhibition hall will be open all day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. October 18-19, 2017.
In 2016, NIFMSE experienced its largest attendance to date, with 18% growth in qualified buyers and a 26% increase in overall attendance from 2015.
“With the move to the Las Vegas Convention Center, attendees and vendors can expect a new look and feel to the show. The new location gives the show the ability to increase the size of the exhibit space where vendors will have even more opportunities to promote their brand and increase awareness to attendees,” says Karalynn Sprouse, EVP of Emerald Expositions.
NIFMSE is also working on updating and expanding its product categories. Automotive is a growing category in the international section of the expo, along with materials on the domestic side. The biggest expansion area for the 2017 event is looking to be the machinery section.
At ten months out, floor space is filling up quickly with more than 80% of the show already booked. To inquire about booth space availability for the October 2017 show, please email email@example.com or visit fastenershows.com.
