What's more, to our delight, many local exhibitors and visitors told us that they will come to visit the 6th Guanghzou Fastener Trade Show scheduled for Nov.11-12, 2011 at Guangzhou Poly World Trade Expo Center.
Though the size of the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo/East is a little small, and there are only three exhibitors from China, representatives of China Fastener Info spared no effort to distribute a large number of CFDs and introduced Chinese suppliers to purchasers. We successfully played a beautiful melody of East with Chinese red in the backdrop of the deep blue light at the Columbus Conference Hall.
