Speaker Submissions for IFE 2022 are Open!

Since 1981, International Fastener Expo has connected manufacturers and master distributors of fasteners, precision formed parts, fastener machinery & tooling and other related products and services with distributors and sales agents in the distribution chain.

Attendees from around the globe will gather October 17 – 19 in Las Vegas for a robust show floor experience and educational conference program. We’re calling on industry thought-leaders and experts to share insights, expert advice, and practical strategies.

Do you have the expertise or experience that will benefit our #IFE2022 attendees? If so, we invite you to submit a speaker proposal below to join our expert speaking faculty.

The deadline to submit a proposal is June 6, 2022.
