Vegas International Fastener Expo names new venue and launches preview day

The doors have just shut on the fastener show formerly known as NIFMSE, but plans have already emerged for next year's iteration of the event.

NIFMSE, now known as the International Fastener Expo, is to move to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. This year the show, which closed last week, was held at the Las Vegas Convention Centre at the other end of the Vegas Strip, and the year before at the Sands Expo.

Next year's show will also see a new Preview Day for the Machinery, Tooling and Source Global areas only - half the exhibition hall will be open for the preview.

The 2018 edition of the International Fastener Expo will run slightly later in the month, from 30 October to 1 November 2018.

Torque was among the exhibitors at this year's show. We'll have a show report in a forthcoming issue of Torque Magazine. Don't get a copy? You can subscribe for free, here.
