HÀ NỘI - The first ever Vietnam Hardware and Hand Tools Expo 2016 will be held at the HCM City from November 30 to December 3 this year at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in HCM City.
Vinexad is organising this first and only specialised International Exhibition on Hardware and Hand tools with the aim of opening more opportunities for Vietnamese people and give them access to advanced and handy products, said Nguyễn Khắc Luận, its general director.
The exhibition will focus on both manufacturing and introducing these products in daily life.
Luận said many Vietnamese and international manufacturers and distributors have evinced a keen interest in the upcoming event as they want to showcase products for both home improvement and support industries in the Vietnamese market.
He said the growing support industry in Việt Nam has played an important role in the supply chain as well as the global value chain. Companies and large-scale foreign corporations have established manufacturing and assembly plants in Việt Nam as businesses want to cut transport costs and risks. This also creates opportunities for local spare parts’ suppliers.
The exhibition will focus on four main sectors: Tools - DIY (Do It Yourself) and Building Hardware - Fasteners - Securities, Locks and Fittings, along with special commercial programmes and seminars aimed at promoting and developing products. These seminars will be organised within the framework of the exhibition. The expo will act as a platform for cooperation and exchange between buyers and sellers, and will give them direct access to advanced technologies and products. Besides, it will also provide an opportunity for an overview of the Vietnam hardware and hand tools industry for local enterprises, said Luận.
The Vietnam Association of Mechanical Industry (VAMI) is supporting the expo, offering professional counselling in the run up to the event. As of date, 152 enterprises from 17 countries and territories have confirmed participation in the Vietnam Hardware and Hand Tools Expo.
These countries are: Italy, Japan, the USA, Singapore, China, Germany, Korea, Taiwan, India, Holland, Australia, Việt Nam and so on. Among the brands that will participate are Bosch, Makita, Greenlee, Vogel, Hazet, Endres Tools, Sherman and Reilly, Betex, Loxeal, Homedepot and Pilosio Asia. The expo will be spread over an area of 4,000 sq.m.
During the exhibition, an industrial seminar on Integrating the Supply Chains of Support Industries and Product Marketing and Sales will be organised. At this seminar, experts and business leaders will exchange views on the current situation and outlook for the Vietnamese support industry and the prospects for integrated development as well as marketing and sales solutions. -- VNS
