Box 5, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 - Tel: 847.438.8338, 1.800.753.8338 - mwfa@ameritech.net - www.mwfa.net June 13-15, 2011 celebrated the 3rd Biennial All-Fastener National Industry Event, organized by Mid-West Fastener Association and Fastener Technology International Magazine. This year’s event was joined by the National Association for Surface Finishing who co-located their SUR/FIN 2011 show in conjunction with Fastener Tech ’11. This event is also supported by several organizations: Chicago Metal Finishers Institute, Fastener Training Institute, GlobalFastenerNews.com, Heat Treating Society, Fully Threaded Radio, Industrial Fasteners Institute, Distributor’s Link Magazine, Pacific-West Fastener Association, National Fastener Distributors Association, Women in the Fastener Industry, and China Fastener. This is the 30th show the Mid-West Fastener has hosted. Special recognition was given to the following 30 year exhibitors: Abbott-Interfast Corp., Brighton-Best Int’l, Continental-Aero, FIN/GlobalFastenerNews.com, Metric & Multistandard Components, Nylok-Chicago, Vertex Distribution (formerly Bell Fasteners) and XL Screw Corp. The MWFA has enjoyed featuring a fastener show for 30 years alternating between Table Top Shows and Booth shows at the Donald E. Stehpens Convention Center. The evolution of the show has taken it from a 50 table show to over 115 booths with 3 days of events. To kick off the show, exhibitors are invited to an Exhibitor Luncheon. Following the first day of the show an All Industry Reception was sponsored by Mid-West Fastener Association, Fastener Technology International, KCH Engineered Systems, EPi/Electrochemical Products, American Fasteners & Components, KDS Imports, Metric & Multistandard, National Fastener Distributors Association, Sems and Specials, XL Screw Corp., Brighton-Best Int’l and YRC. This two hour event, allowing exhibitors and attendees from both shows to network, featured an open bar, appetizers and a pasta bar. There was immense excitement at this event with over 900 attending. Fastener Tech ’11 featured several seminars: Fastener Technology Workshop Presented by: the Fastener Training Institute® Effectively Expand Your Domestic Fastener Supply Base & Find Technical Data in Seconds Presented by: the Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI) Trends in Social Networking for Fastener Professionals Presented by: Fully Threaded Radio (FTR) and Fasteners Clearing House (FCH) Fastener Distributor Strategies to Boost Sales & Efficiencies Presented by: DDI System Simulation Roundtable Presented by: Fastener Technology International (FTI) Women in the Fastener Industry Meeting Presented by: WIFI (Women in the Fastener Industry) Dozens of Fastener Buying Tips Presented by: Global Fastener News (GFN) This event, in the heart of the fastener industry, offered something for everyone, manufacturers, distributors, users, industry suppliers, and service providers to the fastener industry. The positive reaction to the synergy of the two shows was obvious throughout the two show days by the show floor activity. Positive feedback was immediate through show exhibitors/attendees comments, Traveling Salesman’s Fastener Talk Blog, and Fully Threaded Radio. Fastener Tech ’13 plans underway, watch for details at fastenertech.com and mwfa.net.
