80 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK MID-WEST FASTENER ASSOCIATION - FASTENER TECH ‘17 PO Box 5, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 TOLL-FREE 1-800-753-8338 TEL 847-438-8338 EMAIL WEB DID QUALITY OUTSHINE QUANTITY? by Nancy Rich TECH ’17 featured a low price for a complete booth package, exhibitor lunch and the All Industry Reception. Some of the sessions offered were gratis presenting and added benefit. Comments received include: “Great job on the show once again. It was a success.” June 5th - 8th was a very busy week in the Rosemont, IL area with FASTENER TECH ’17 featuring informative/educational sessions by various groups as well as social time with the All Industry Reception. On June 5th Fastener Training Institute conducted a class on Why Fasteners Fail. Additional Sessions followed on June 6th. Sessions included Introduction to Coiled Springs by Spirol International, the Art and Science of Talent Development by Women in the Fastener Industry, Making Fasteners from Beginning to End by Fastener Technology Int’l, and a Networking/ Brainstorming Session hosted by Young Fastener Professionals. The show featuring over 130 exhibitors showcasing manufactured goods and industry services. FASTENER TECH ’17 drew less attendees than FASTENER TECH ’15. Despite this, the most common comment heard from exhibitors was attendance seemed down but they felt they really saw quality attendees. Many exhibitors felt confident they had made good contacts at the show. Shows are like business, some years are up and some are down. Exhibitors didn’t look at FASTENER TECH ’17 as an overall down year recognizing the number of contacts they were able to see and network with for the economical cost of the show. FASTENER “Another great show, well done.” The popular All Industry Reception was held following the first day of the show. While exhibitors and attendees enjoyed cocktails and appetizers, Eric Dudas, of FCH Sourcing Network took the opportunity to present Mike McNulty of Fastener Technology Int’l with an award for his 100th Fastener News Report on Fully Threaded Radio. We thank exhibitors and attendees who supported the show. In 2018, MWFA will present their 37th Annual Fastener Show. Exhibitors are invited to register for exhibit space early by using the registration form or going online to for a registration form.
