World’s leading exhibition for the fastener and fixing industry with record exhibition space: positive economic outlook offers potential for growth
Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2019, the world’s leading exhibition for the fastener and fixing industry, will take place from 19 – 21 March 2019 in halls 1, 3 and 5 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Grounds in Germany. Due to a further expansion of the exhibition space this year, offering a total of 22,000 net square metres in total, the exhibition has already exceeded the total stand space of the previous event in 2017. More than 97% of the total available stand space has been booked so far.
Around 900 companies from 40 countries will be present with a stand at the 8th International Exhibition for the Fastener and Fixing Industry in March 2019. Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and France are the major European exhibitor countries. Asian exhibitors mainly come from Turkey, China, India and Taiwan.
“The fastener and fixing industry is expecting a positive economic development in the upcoming years. Based on evolving global industry sectors like e-mobility, the aerospace and construction industries, a growing demand for fasteners and fixings is currently anticipated”, says Liljana Goszdziewski, Exhibition Director of Fastener Fair Stuttgart, on behalf of the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “The market has developed dynamically over the last couple of years, with new technologies and fields of application as well as the use of various new materials. In addition, hybrid fasteners have been well established in the industry. Therefore, fasteners and fixings are more frequently applied as flexible and highly functional solutions which are used in lightweight engineering as well as various other areas”, continues Liljana Goszdziewski.
The Fastener Fair Stuttgart Exhibition Profile covers all areas of the fastener and fixing industry: industrial fasteners and fixings, construction fixings, assembly and installation systems as well as fastener manufacturing technology. The show targets distributors, suppliers, engineers and other industry professionals and is therefore the meeting place for the whole industry.

Special area for Bonding and Adhesive Technologies
For the first time, as part of Fastener Fair Stuttgart, there will be a special area for bonding and adhesive technologies. The focus of the “Bonding and Adhesive Technology Area” especially lies on solutions which are growing in importance in modern manufacturing. They provide an excellent addition to traditional fasteners and, thus, have become a vital choice in lightweight construction, for example in the automotive and electronics industries.
Due to their unique characteristics, they offer a cost-effective solution for a range of challenges throughout a variety of industry sectors. Bonding and adhesive technologies allow the material to retain its properties, enable the use of thinner and lighter materials and are perfectly suited for composite systems.
Companies still interested in exhibiting at Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2019 are advised to contact the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions as soon as possible, as there is a limited number of stands available.
