Concorde Conference Centre - Runway Park - Manchester

Why you should attend

You can’t beat face-to-face discussions to solve a design engineering, production engineering or supply problem, and this is an opportunity to meet with the true experts in fastening and bonding. Your time here won’t just save project or production time and money – it can also open up new and rewarding opportunities that you may not otherwise have considered!

Every exhibitor is UK based so all their specialist application advice is as readily available to you as their products are when you do business with them. And their expert advice is free! It is common to see some of the UK’s best design engineers and production professionals bring samples or drawings with them for expert appraisal and discussion at the FAST Exhibition and according to on-going visitor research, more than 90% of all visitors have achieved the objectives of their visit.

The unique ‘Roadshow’ style of the event has been designed to provide answers for busy people who want to get in, get round, get fastening solutions and get back to work with the minimum of time and fuss.

Pre-register in advance for a VIP visitor badge and claim free exhibition entry, free parking, and a free bacon roll and brew on arrival. The exhibition opens for business at 08:30 especially for those wishing to make an early start.
