"The FENCETECH and METALfab shows will allow attendees from all over the country to discover the industry's best products, services and professional development and offer an opportunity to celebrate all this great industry has to offer in an environment conducive to collaboration and community." "We are excited about co-locating with FENCETECH and working with AFA. This agreement is the result of several years of discussions and I'm delighted to see this vision becoming a reality," said Todd Daniel. "Both of our organizations have great strengths, and by combining our annual shows we can now expose our attendees to more products, services, and new ideas." FENCETECH is the largest gathering in the fence industry, and METALfab is NOMMA's premier event for ornamental and miscellaneous metals professionals. Co-locating these trade shows will provide immeasurable benefits to attendees, exhibitors and association members in the fencing and metals industries. "We're trying to look at what's best for the industry," said Thornton, "and create an offering where we can show more aspects of the fence and metals industry under one roof so attendees can come and go between the two." Together, these high-profile events will be a one-stop shop for decision makers and place them on the frontline of the latest products and services in the fencing and metals industries. 12 | July/August 2016 * O&MM Fabricator "We are excited about co-locating with FENCETECH and working with AFA.
