Southwest exhibitions prove rewarding for local manufacturers

The FAST & IASE Exhibitions SOUTHWEST took place on Thursday 12th May at the Haynes International Motoring Museum near Yeovil and proved a big hit with buyers, users and specifiers of fasteners and adhesives who visited from the area.

"A very good exhibition, will come again" said the director of a company designing and installing systems in defence applications

"Very informative exhibition" was the comment from a leading manufacturer of industrial automation and robotics equipment

"A very well directed expo, and focused" observed a senior engineer working for a process control and instrumentation manufacturer

"Very interesting – some lateral thinking ideas!" said the Head of Research at a sportsgear manufacturer

The next FAST & IASE Exhibitions take place on 20th October at the hugely popular National Motorcycle Museum venue, adjacent to the NEC. The Autumn events aren't just the best attended - they also offer the biggest number of exhibitors on hand to provide expert advice for OEMs keen to embrace the latest fastening and adhesive technologies available for advanced manufacturing. Make a date in your diary!
