A new show launching at The International Centre in Telford claims to have sold more than half its total floor plan one year out.
 
The new Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show is focused on fabricators and installers working in the window, door and conservatory industry and will be held from 16 to 18 April 2013. Show co-organiser and company director Paul Godwin pointed out the home improvement window, door and conservatory market was still worth £3.7bn annually, despite the impact of the economy on the industry in recent years.
 
“Most markets of this size enjoy their own annual showcase. It continues to be a dynamic, vibrant industry that is constantly changing and demanding new ideas and energies,” Godwin said.
 
“The FIT Show is designed to provide information, ideas, inspiration and a powerful forum for fabricators, installers and the trade to come together in a friendly, creative environment that will also be fun.”
 
Show co-founder Matthew Glover said its research indicated potential visitors preferred a Midlands location, leading to its choice of Telford. He highlighted the venue’s free parking, Wi-Fi connectivity and motorway connections as key selling points.
 
According to its market research, 95.2 per cent of people wanted to visit a national window, door and conservatory trade show with a focus on new products and services, networking, establishing new business contacts, meeting existing suppliers and attending seminars and presentations.
 
The organiser claims the FIT Show is the first national event for the glass and glazing sector for more than three years following the cancellation of Emap’s Glassex show.

Godwin and Glover, who have a history in the glazing and glass industries, expect to attract 150 suppliers to the show and have now added an additional 600sqm to the floor plan. Alongside exhibitors, the new event will feature demonstrations, seminars, discussions and debates and will be complemented by a gala dinner.
 
Telford’s International Centre claims to have also witnessed a rise in public exhibitions this year including Tattoo Freeze and the British Sugarcraft Exhibition.
