FENCETECH to Co-Locate with METALfab
Trade Shows of AFA and NOMMA


The American Fence Association and the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association have announced that for the first time, in 2017, their trade shows will co-locate. FENCETECH and METALfab will take place February 1-5 in San Antonio, Texas.

Tony Thornton, CFP, CAGOI, CAGSD, Executive Director of American Fence Association (AFA), and Todd Daniel, CAE, Executive Director of National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA), recently announced plans to co-locate FENCETECH and METALfab at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, February 1 - 5, 2017.

"AFA is proud to announce the partnership with NOMMA to co-locate the two shows," Thornton announced. "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."

ENCETECH 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.
