“We can safely say that Fastener Fair Italy has been a success. It was the first major post-pandemic face-to face event dedicated to the fastener and fixing sector in Italy. There’s nothing better than meeting in person to build lasting relationships, connect with industry peers and discover the latest innovations. The show allowed the entire sector to come together through relevant meetings rich in topical and fundamentally essential content. The sector is buoyant, and our show is the proof of this”, comments Liljana Goszdziewski, Portfolio Director for the European Fastener Fairs.
Significant figures characterise this constantly evolving sector: according to international reports, the Italian fastener and fixing market is expected to grow by 2.3% annually in the five years from 2020-2025. This average value comprehends all fastening systems, from the industrial and manufacturing sectors, automotive and very specialised applications, such as aerospace. Pre-pandemic data indicate that companies in the industry had a significant increase in turnover over the years, with a growth of 6.2% in 2018 and 6.9% in 2019, before the pandemic stop, which in 2020 recorded a decrease of -3.4% (a slight decline when compared with other markets).
The data from the Anima Confindustria Research Office referring to the first half of 2022 confirm export as a driving force of the Italian mechanic sector: +9% in the first half compared to the same period of 2021, for a total value of 17.1 billion euros. The primary destination market remains the EU area, which marks +15% and over 8 billion euros in exports, whilst the most significant growth in percentage terms occurs in the Americas: +37% in North America and +17% in Central and South America.

FASTENER FAIR ITALY 2021 POSTPONED: 3RD INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION FOR FASTENER AND FIXING TECHNOLOGY WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 30 NOVEMBER – 1 DECEMBER 2022 AT FIERA MILANO CITY, ITALY.
February 2021 – Following last week’s communication on Fastener Fair Stuttgart’s postponement, Mack Brooks Exhibitions has today announced new dates for Fastener Fair Italy. The event, scheduled to be held at Fiera Milano City from 10 – 11 November 2021, will now take place from 30 November – 1 December 2022. Due to the overlap in product categories, exhibitors and visitors between the two shows, the decision has been made to postpone Fastener Fair Italy. The period between the two shows will give the fastener and fixing industry enough time to guarantee that the products and services on display are up-to-date with the latest innovations and developments that the sector offers.
On behalf of the organiser Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, Liljana Goszdziewski, Portfolio Director of the European Fastener Fairs, commented on the announcement: “Following our decision to postpone Fastener Fair Stuttgart to the Autumn, we had to review when to hold Fastener Fair Italy. Of course, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdowns and travel restrictions have had an impact on our show calendar. As a result, we agreed to move Fastener Fair Italy back to its original two-year cycle to avoid its dates overlapping with Fastener Fair Stuttgart. This will also allow all exhibitors to tailor their offering based on the market demands of each show and target their specific audiences accordingly. By postponing the show, we want to give the fastener and fixing industry time to plan their attendance at both events and optimise the benefits of their participation at each show.”
The Fastener Fair Italy team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months and thank exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their understanding and support during this unprecedented time.
Fastener Fair Italy is part of a series of targeted trade events for the fastener and fixing industry, including Fastener Fair Turkey, Fastener Fair India, Fastener Fair France, Fastener Fair Mexico and Fastener Fair USA. Fastener Fair Stuttgart, Germany, is the global flagship exhibition of the Fastener Fair brand.
