Dates announced for 2nd Fastener Fair Thailand
Ready to tap into South East Asia’s growth

Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced that Fastener Fair Thailand 2013 will take place at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) from 9-11 October. It will be the second edition of Fastener Fair in Thailand after the widely acknowledged success of the show’s debut on 6-8 September this year.
Fastener Fair Thailand 2013 is the latest in the series of new Fastener Fairs, targeting key emerging markets outside Europe, joining Fastener Fair India, Fastener Fair Russia, Fastener Fair Brazil, and Fastener Fair China.
Fastener Fair Thailand 2013 will provide an ideal platform for both local and international distributors and manufacturers aiming to establish successful business relations both with customers (for fastener and fixing systems) and with local agents or partners across the South East Asian region. The show will attract both trade visitors and end-users, keen to source superior products and also find new fastening and fixing solutions.
In addition to Thailand’s position as a gateway to South East Asia, the growing economy is built on a progressive manufacturing sector with particular strengths in automotive and electronics production. This presents exciting opportunities for fastener suppliers looking to strengthen their position or establish a foothold in the vibrant South East Asia region.
In 2013 the economy (GDP) in Thailand is forecast to grow by 5.5-6%. The major export sectors for Thailand are in the automotive market, representing 9.4% (1st half of 2012), and computers and electronics parts, accounting for 8.7% of exports. Fasteners play a vital role in these industries and Fastener Fair Thailand will meet their demands for fastening and fixing solutions.
Exhibition Director, Michael Wilton comments: "The second edition of Fastener Fair Thailand will once again provide manufacturers and suppliers of fastener and fixing solutions with the opportunity to trade, discuss and further develop their network of clients, distributors and users within the South East Asian region”.
The first edition of the show saw more than 2,400 visitors including trade professionals, distributors and end-users from 47 countries across the world, together with over 130 exhibiting companies comprising fastener manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and firms offering fastener manufacturing technology.
Michael Wilton continued: "After very encouraging feedback from both exhibitors and visitors at the first show, the second edition has already received support from the Thailand Auto Parts Manufacturing Association (TAPMA) as well as from the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau. We are excited about how the Thai manufacturing industries are embracing the show and recognising the need and importance of an event entirely dedicated to fastener and fixing technology.”
Looking forward to the 2013 edition of Fastener Fair Thailand, Khun Achana Limpaitoon, President of TAPMA remarked: "TAPMA found the exhibition very useful for the auto parts makers as well as the automotive parts industry as a whole”. The automotive sector, a major user of fasteners, was well represented at Fastener Fair Thailand with 22% of visitors either automotive (and parts) manufacturers or direct suppliers to the auto sector.
The event is part of the Fastener Fair series of Mack Brooks Exhibitions targeted trade fairs for the fastener and fixings industry which include Fastener Fair Hanover, Fastener Fair India, Fastener Fair China, Fastener Fair Russia, Fastener Fair Brazil and the flagship event, Fastener Fair Stuttgart, Europe’s leading international trade fair for this industry sector.
