IFE Confirms Unprecedented American Access to European Markets at Upcoming 2018 Fastener Expo

"IFE 2018 will be held at the Mandalay Bay resort from October 30 – November 1 in conjunction with the 70,000 vendors and buyers who gather for the SEMA Show."

Los Angeles, CA, February 27, 2018 – On the heels of record-breaking attendance at their October 2017 show, the International Fastener Expo partnered with Berlin-based EFDA (European Fastener Distributor Association) to bring a large delegation from 11 different European countries to IFE 2018. The EFDA represents 170 European-based innovators with collective sales of more than 4 billion Euros.

EFDA’s “Securing the Future” documentation describes the global fastener industry with great concern. “Our sector is no longer a simple ‘box-shifter’ that can adapt overnight to changes in the regulatory environment.” As Karalynn Sprouse, EVP, Emerald Expositions notes, “EFDA’s participation at IFE 2018 will help American interests understand how Europe has responded to the fastener industry’s globalization crisis, effectively managing an increasingly complex global supply chain shift.”

Thanks to three decades of partnerships IFE has established with domestic associations (NFDA, Pac-West, MWFA, SFA, SEFA and NCFA) and media partners the 2018 International Fastener Expo is expecting to surpass last year’s record-breaking attendance. With 80% of 2017’s exhibitors already renewed and twelve new first-time exhibitors already confirmed. The following is just a sampling of new exhibitors to be found at IFE 2018: American Belleville, Alpha USA, Clampco Products, Project Industries Inc., Enoch Precision Machining, Foerster Instruments, Eurolink FSS, LLC, Bar Stock Specialties and The DECC Company. PC Engineering will be exhibiting in our fastest growing area – Machinery.

IFE 2018 will be held at the Mandalay Bay resort from October 30 – November 1 in conjunction with the 70,000 vendors and buyers who gather for the SEMA Show. IFE 2018 will also expand their Global Source area, making IFE a global presentation and marketplace right in the U.S.A.; saving attendees on travel time and sales team expense.
