Record breaking numbers for the show in all 3 categories—exhibit space, exhibitors, and total number of attendees in 2016

For the first time in its show history, the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo (NIFMSE) is named on the list of Trade ShowNews Network’s Trade (TSNN) Top 250 Trade Shows and Trade Show Executive’s (TSE) Fastest 50 Winners. TSNN’s list represents the top 250 trade shows held last year in the United States and is ranked by net square footage. At just under 100,000 square feet, NIFMSE is recognized and awarded amongst other top winners.

NIFMSE was also named one of 50’s fastest growing trade shows by TSE magazine in all 3 categories for 2016. The list comprised of the shows that had the highest levels of growth in total attendance, net square footage, and number of exhibiting companies in 2016.

This spring, NIFMSE will be honored amongst other 49 Fastest 50 winners at the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit in Chicago. Emerald Expositions was also honored as the top show management organization with the most shows on the TSNN list, by far, with 30 shows.

“We are thrilled to be named on TSNN’s Top 250 list and are honored to have been selected as one of TSE’s Fastest 50 shows in all three categories," said Karalynn Sprouse, EVP of Emerald Expositions. “This accomplishment is a testament to our dedication to bringing value and growth to the show and to our fastener, machinery and tooling community and is also a reflection of the continual support from our exhibitors, attendees and industry partners.”

In 2016, NIFMSE experienced its largest attendance to date, with 18% growth in qualified buyers and a 22% increase in exhibitor growth from 2015.
