The show, scheduled for May 18 to 20, 2020, at the Charlotte, North Carolina Convention Center in Charlotte, NC, USA, has been rescheduled to July 13 to 15, 2020, and will remain in Charlotte. “Our number one priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff,” said Randy Field, Group VP, Reed Exhibitions. “Postponement is never an easy decision. But after consulting our customers, closely monitoring developments and reviewing guidance from public health officials including United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), we have decided it is in the best interest of all our Fastener Fair community. We look forward to getting back to business and reconnecting in Charlotte in July.” “As we face challenging times, we must band together as an industry to continue the tradition of networking, sourcing, education and learning best practices at a common time/place,” said Bob Chiricosta, Event Director.
