The National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo moves to a new venue for 2017: The Las Vegas Convention Center.

The 37th annual trade show will be October 17-19, 2017.

Located at Paradise Road and East Desert Inn Rd., LVCC is 1.4 miles northeast of the Sands Convention Center – where NIFMSE has been for four years.

The Las Vegas edition of the trade show founded in 1981 in Columbus, Ohio, was first held in 1997 as NIFS/West. Starting with 228 booths in the inaugural year, the West show outgrew the East show in 2000. NIFS/East continued in Columbus, Orlando, Atlanta and Baltimore until being cancelled after the 2011 show.

Over the years the Las Vegas show has also been located at Bally’s, Paris and Mandalay Bay in addition to Sands.

Last year was the first NIFMSE for new owners Emerald Exhibitions LLC and it was a record year. NIFMSE drew a record 758 exhibiting companies topping the 1,000 booth mark. Show management announced attendee registration was up 18%, making the count about 1,473.

The next deadline for $60 discount Attendee registration is September 15, 2017.

The opening reception will be Tuesday 6p-8p poolside at the Westgate Resort. Informal networking will be pointed toward the Westgate’s Circle Bar. Conference sessions are on all three days (see below).

The NIFMSE Hall of Fame and Young Fastener Professionals award ceremony will be 3:30p-4:30p Wednesday.
