I have spoken to a lot of distributors in Northeast Ohio and some in surrounding states. Without question, local distributors will be attending the Fastener Fair USA show in Cleveland. Questions about it being a “first time show” or the fact that end users could be walking the show do not seem to be diminishing the interest. I have probably spoken with 15-20 distributors and only one told me they were not planning to attend. A few were not aware of the show but appreciated the fact that I made them aware by asking about it. I wish I could get a pulse on how many attendees will be coming from other parts of the country. Will “national”, multi branch distributors be sending people? Will distributors from Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Columbus, Detroit…Chicago be attending? If there is attendance data available I would be interested in hearing about it. Regardless, people from my back yard will be there and I will too. Looking forward to the show.
