Attendees from around the world will gather September 10 & 11, 2024 at Mandalay Bay 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, skilled knowledge, and practical strategies.

What We Are Looking For & Suggested Topics

IFE is looking for cutting-edge content and topics that solve today’s biggest challenges in the fastener industry. Proposals are welcome from both well-versed industry experts as well as professionals just beginning to transition to leadership roles. IFE strives to build a diverse group of speakers, reflecting the broad array of industry insights available. Proposals should address any of the following areas:

Applications Regulations, Trades and Tariff Policies

Environment and Sustainability Sourcing
Inventory Control and Management Supply Chain
Production Distribution

Global Challenges and Opportunities (Inflation, Economic Trends, Resilience) Technology



All topics must be strictly educational and provide actionable ideas. Promotional content related to an individual’s product, company, and/or services violates the conference’s “no-pitch” policy.
