SHEPARD is the Official General Contractor of the Fastener Fair 2022 and will maintain an Exhibitor Service Center during set-up, show days and dismantling.  All other official show contractors will also be set up in this area as well.  All inquiries regarding booth services and orders should be made at the Exhibitor Service Center, including booth furnishings, labor, freight, utilities, and special show services.

Notice To Exhibitors Regarding Non-Official Contractors

The companies listed below have been appointed as the only Official Contractors providing the stated services for this event.  Show Management carefully considers the selection of Official Contractors based on quality of service, variety of products, price, and reputation. Since these contractors frequently work on more than one show with us, they value the business of our customers and provide quality products and services.

Some companies may misrepresent themselves as being an official contractor so PLEASE be sure to check the list in the exhibitor manual or give us a call.   

Things to watch for if you are considering the services of a non-official contractor are hidden charges for material handling, labor, and shipping that you might not pay otherwise (for example on carpet rental), control over delivery time, availability during move-in and leverage if something goes wrong.   

Also be advised that non-official contractors will need to abide by the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor procedures, provide insurance certificates, etc. in order to gain access to the Show Floor.
