Christmas came early for members of The FIT Show team when they scooped a trophy at this year’s G Awards, which took place at a glamorous presentation ceremony held in London’s Hilton Park Lane hotel.
The FIT Show won the ‘Promotional Campaign of the Year – Trade’ category for the inaugural FIT Show that took place in April 2013. The event attracted more than 170 exhibitors and almost 6,000 visitors, the majority of whom were fabricators and exhibitors, its core target group.
More than 650 of the window, door and conservatory industry’s great and good looked on during the presentation as the FIT Show team took to the stage, invited by host for the evening, comedian and television presenter Dara O’Briain.
“We are all so proud to win this award in front of so many of the people that made it possible,” exclaimed Matthew Glover, co-organiser of The FIT Show. “I have attended the G Awards many times but to actually win one of the categories is wonderful. I am delighted that our fantastic team has been recognised.”
The G Awards trophy is the second The FIT Show has won this year, the event being presented previously with the prestigious ‘Trade Show Launch of the Year’ by the Association of Event Organisers (AEO).
The FIT Show will take place once again at Telford in 2014 on 10th, 11th and 12th June, for which more than 80% of stands had been sold by early December.
