The 36th Annual National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo (NIFMSE) scheduled for October 25-27, 2016 at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nevada USA is getting better with age. With the expansion and move from Hall A to Hall C & D, NIFMSE Show Director, Susan A. Hurley projects a complete sell-out in exhibit space.


“We already reserved 70,000 net sq. ft. of exhibit space for 500 companies worldwide, putting us well ahead of booth sales this point in time, last year”, reports Hurley. “With the rapidly growing Machinery & Tooling area, we already have 19 companies in 3,800 sq. ft. of space, and we’re not stopping there. We are aggressively marketing to the adhesives and specialty tools industries, including drills, hand tools, power tools, and plant maintenance and safety products, all of which are gaining in popularity with today’s modern distributor.”


Tomorrow’s Opportunities—with all 2015 space renewal assignments now completed, the Expo is open to all new and returning companies for space selection. With plenty of good exhibit space locations still available, now is a great time to reserve exhibit space and get in on the action. Contact Susan Hurley at (614) 895-1279 or to start the process of choosing your location.


With the recent acquisition by the Emerald Expositions, a leading B2B trade show and conference producer, Fastener’s exhibitors and attendees will see minimal to no changes for the 2016 Expo. “It is business as usual. Our priority is to continue serving our customers, both exhibitors and buyers the best way possible and without any disruption,” said Karalynn Sprouse, EVP of Merchandise, International Sourcing & Manufacturing, and Fasteners at Emerald Expositions. “This early in the show cycle, our focus is renewing our 2015 exhibitors and then going after new opportunities. We have already locked in 9 new companies for the show. Next month, we will be looking at the buyer universe and strategizing on getting more buyers to the show by extending invitations to engineers, specifiers, and other recommenders from manufactures looking for better solutions. The future of NIFMSE looks very bright and I have faith the team will get it there.”


What Exhibitors said:

  • “I was pleased with the turnout in 2015. It looks like 2016 is going to be even bigger.”
  • “I think it is a very important show. I have always had good response from exhibiting.”


What Buyers said..
