Fastener Fair Italy postpones to November 2022

The third Fastener Fair Italy will take place one year later than originally scheduled thanks to an increasingly disrupted trade show calendar.

The next Fastener Fair Italy will now run 30 November - 1 December 2022. The show was originally scheduled for 10-11 November 2021 and moved as a direct result of Fastener Fair Stuttgart's rescheduling from May 2021 to November 2021.

A statement from organiser of both shows, Mack Brooks, said: "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."

Potential scheduling clashes in Q4 2021 also include the postponed Fastener Fair USA 2021, which moved from June 2021 to 8-10 November 2021.

Liljana Goszdziewski, Portfolio Director of the European Fastener Fairs, added: "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."

Fastener Fair Italy 2022 will take place from 30 November – 1 December 2022 at Fiera Milano City, Italy.
