Torque-Expo Coventry is a leading international industry show that combines fasteners, fixings, tools and related industries. Designed for face-to-face selling and lead generation – together with a special networking Gala-Dinner, Torque-Expo is the meeting place for the distribution industry.

Industry meeting point

Torque-Expo is designed for exhibitors to maximise a return on their investment.
Exhibiting at Torque-Expo provides a cost effective platform to meet and do business with distribution industry professionals looking to source new products. The target visitor audience are key decision makers (owners, MDs, senior buyers and purchasing managers) within stockist distribution and whole- saler businesses, independent retailers, hardware and builders merchants, multiple retailers and engineer suppliers.
The show’s key objectives are to provide exhibitors with a platform for focused selling to new and existing customers, meet distributors who are looking to enhance their range and increase sales and profits.


Networking has always been an essential part of Torque- Expo, including highly successful Gala Dinners.
The 2018 event will include an exhibitor networking event on the evening after set up as well as the traditional Gala Dinner on the first night of the show.
The on-site DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the Ricoh Arena will host the popular Gala Dinner networking event, including a three-course meal and featuring new comedians and a magician.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Tickets can be bought individually or tables can be reserved.
