The show was launched again from October 19 to 20 at International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow. According to sources, the COVID in the last two years made many European companies (including those in the fastener industry) move their plants to eastern European countries. Poland located in central Europe with its geological advantage becomes the biggest winner in this drastic change, of which the benefit will be brought to this most critical fastener show.
Fastener World has attended this show for times since its first edition, and of course we did not miss the edition this year. Since the war in eastern Europe could bring substantial demand for construction recovery, Fastener Poland could benefit from its geographic advantage and the exhibitors there to attract construction fastener related purchase orders.
Furthermore, we observed that Poland’s furniture export to the U.S. last year grew as much as 26%, and the export to EU is still growing. Therefore, DIY fasteners demand could increase in this show. Fastener World was at booth “D43” handing out magazines, introducing suppliers and getting market intelligence from local visitors.
