Fastener Fair Stuttgart ... set for November.

Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has announced the postponement of the ninth edition of Fastener Fair Stuttgart – an international exhibition for the fastener and fixing industry –to November 9.

The three-day event was scheduled to take place at the Stuttgart Exhibition Grounds in Germany from May 18 to 20.

This decision was taken in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and following discussions with all exhibitors and visitors that have taken place over the past few months.  Uncertainties around continued travel restrictions were also a contributing factor to this decision due to the truly international character of the Fastener Fair Stuttgart show, said the organiser Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

Announcing the postponement, Liljana Goszdziewski, Portfolio Director of Fastener Fair Stuttgart, on behalf of the organiser, said: “Following extensive conversations with all participants, we have come to the decision to postpone Fastener Fair Stuttgart to November. Based on the current international developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic, covering further lockdown and travel restrictions, we believe that it is the most responsible decision at this stage to postpone.”

“This early announcement will hopefully allow time for the impact of Covid-19 across the world to stabilise and when safe to do so, ensure that the event can continue its critical role in bringing the global fastener and fixing industry together again,” stated Goszdziewski.

Subsequently, Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has announced that Fastener Fair Italy, scheduled to take place during the same dates in November, will be postponed due to the overlap of both shows in terms of exhibitors and visitors.

Further information on new dates for Fastener Fair Italy will be announced shortly, it added.

Fastener Fair Stuttgart is the global flagship exhibition of the Fastener Fair brand. The three-day event is the world’s leading meeting place for the fastener and fixing industry.

It is part of a series of targeted trade events for the fixing industry, including Fastener Fair Italy, Fastener Fair Turkey, Fastener Fair France, Fastener Fair India, Fastener Fair Mexico and Fastener Fair US.
