Fastener Fair returns to Coventry in June 2008

October 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Fastener Fair Coventry, widely acknowledged as the meeting place for all the UK and Ireland’s fastener and fixing professionals, will next take place at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 June 2008.

Organiser Jerry Ramsdale says: “The exhibition has been designed for exhibitors as a quick-and-easy ‘turn up, set up and do business’ event. So everything is included in the cost-effective basic package. Similarly, visitors to the Fastener Fair Coventry will find the event very cost- and time-effective too, with all the leading players in one place at one time.”

Ramsdale continues: “As the key networking event for the UK & Ireland’s industry, there are plenty of opportunities to meet with peers, prospects and suppliers.” One of the most popular is the Gala Dinner, which will be held on the evening of Wednesday 11 June, featuring one of the UK’s most in-demand comedians, John Moloney.

“Fastener Fair Coventry only takes place every two years,” says Ramsdale, “So taking part is essential for any company serious about doing business in the UK and Ireland. So if they’re not seen in 2008, they could fall off the industry’s radar and won’t get another chance to come back until 2010.”



1. What is Fastener Fair Coventry? Is it the same as Fastener Fair Stuttgart?
Fastener Fair Coventry represents all aspects of the fastener and fixing market. It brings together manufacturers, machine suppliers, wholesalers, distributors, importers, exporters and tool suppliers, in addition to trade associations and suppliers of services and related products. As a showcase dedicated exclusively to the fastener sector in the UK and Ireland, Fastener Fair Coventry provides visitors and members of the press with an opportunity to see a range of specialist suppliers in one place and at one time. This UK-based Fastener Fair takes place every two years for the UK and Ireland, alternating with the international showcase, Fastener Fair Stuttgart, which next takes place in September/October 2009.
