The International Fastener Expo (IFE) is the largest B2B expo for industrial fasteners and tooling & machinery in North America. Since 1981, the event has brought together the manufacturers and master distributors of fasteners, precision formed parts, fastener machinery & tooling and other related products and services with distributors and sales agents in the distribution chain.
Held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, the three-day event consists of an all-day conference program presented by endorsing fastener associations, a welcome reception, a golf tournament, and a show floor with hundreds of exhibitors from around the world.
Each year, thousands of attendees from 30+ countries travel to North America’s #1 fastener trade show to network and do businesses with hundreds of suppliers, showcasing every type of fasteners for the industrial, construction, aerospace, and automotive industry and much more. From industrial to construction, electronic to automotive and aerospace, this is the trade show where all types of distributors come to network and see customers, build new relationships, and find new products.
Additionally, we provide awards for the industry’s Hall of Fame and Young Fastener Professional recipients. The Hall of Fame and Young Fastener Professional of the Year Awards recognize those who have made lasting inputs to the fastener industry on a national or global scale, and leaders, 40 years old or younger, who already have a record of integrity and respect in the industry.
