This year was the very first year for the Fastener Exhibition & Conference, welcoming big names from across the fastener industry. The event was the ultimate networking hub, showcasing the latest industry products and services, to help visitors keep up with the fastener trends.

The Fastener Exhibition was truly unmissable, holding a fantastic award ceremony where the most innovative industry product was commended. On top of this, the show welcomed a number of inspirational expert speakers who shared their insights into the wonderful world of fasteners.

Show Statistics


On 11th & 12th September 2019, we welcomed some big names through our doors. 74 percent of visitors were the ultimate decision makers of their companies, including CEOs, Managing Directors, Directors, Finance Directors, Operations Directors, and the like.

We saw companies represented across the board, including big businesses like Siemens, ScrewFix, Kier, Kingfisher, and Rolls Royce. Overall, 92 percent of our visitors had an influence on decisions made within their companies. So, all the exhibitors who showcased their ideas at the show made real, worthy contacts who would get in touch in the future.

The show was so popular, that 71 percent of our exhibitors rebooked on-site for 2020, and 87 percent of our visitors said they would attend next year! We can’t wait to welcome these old friends through our doors next year, but we also can’t wait to see some new faces too.

A Final Word From the Fastener Exhibition & Conference Event Director


Our fantastic Event Director, Henry Kirkpatrick, worked so hard to pull this show off. He had a great time at the exhibition, meeting and greeting all the individuals he’d spoken to over the phone, and seeing the show come to life. Henry had only great things to say about how the show went, saying:

“As the Fastener Exhibition and Conference’s inaugural show, we couldn’t have hoped for anything better! We were blown away by the quality of visitors that attended this year. It is a testament to our exhibitors that we haven’t stopped hearing good things about the show.

“It is always tough to launch a show, but it is safe to say that 2019 was extremely successful. Our focus is now on making 2020 even bigger and better. I look forward to seeing you there.”
