(PRWEB UK) 4 March 2012
The organisers of The FIT Show, the new business event for the window, door and conservatory industry taking place in April next year, say that more than 50% of the floor space has already been sold just weeks after it was officially launched.
A mix of large and small companies has clamoured to book exhibition space at the event, which is the first to clearly target fabricators and installers working in the home improvement glazing sector. An exhibition of more than 150 companies in addition to a programme of seminars, discussions, competitions and networking has had immediate appeal to firms looking for an effective way of reaching potential new customers face-to-face. When it takes place on 16th to 18th April 2013 it will be the first national event for the glass and glazing sector for more than 3 years.
Matthew Glover, managing director of The FIT Show and whose commercial interests include the manufacture of windows, doors and conservatories, says he is delighted with the response: “We launched The FIT Show because we listened to so many people saying that the industry needed its own show, that a sector worth more than £3.7 million should have its own showcase. This is a market in which business is done face-to-face and the response we have had confirms the need for our own industry event.”
Whilst there is a clear desire for a new business event, the decision process has been made easier by the inclusive stands being affordable with transparent pricing. “Our research showed that a key requirement was for value for money and clear pricing,” explained Matthew. “This is common sense really. In addition however the venue, the Telford International Centre, offers one of the finest exhibition and meeting centres in the UK and the free parking and easy access is also very attractive.”
The burgeoning exhibitor list now includes such diverse brands as Conservatory Outlet; Custom Glass; CWG Choices; Door-Stop International; Edgetech; Elumatec; FUX/White Extrusion Machinery; Insight Data; Liniar Windows/HL Plastics; Lister Trade Frames; Mila Hardware; Pilkington; Prefix Systems; Promac Group; Quickslide; Solidor; Synseal; Universal Arches; Windowlink; Zoom Conservatory Systems; Tuffx Processed Glass; Anglo European; Totali Timber Solutions; Eclectic Systems; Deceuninck; and Bison Trade Frames; Business Micros, Distinction Doors; Fab n Fix; Glass People; UAP; and Window Industry Consumables; Glazerite; Dempsey Dyer; and Group Homesafe. A substantial list of ‘pre contract’ exhibitors swells the list still further.
