The FIT Show 2017 is now a little over seven months away. As excitement builds for the much talked about fabricator and installer trade show – one where the companies that produce and distribute the products, components and services gather to meet the people that sell, fabricate and install them – the contracts continue to roll in.

With 80% of the floor space booked at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) for next year’s show – that’s 47% more space than the total at FIT Show 2016 – things are heating up. It’s an exciting time for the fabricator and installer trade show with so many new exhibitors coming on board as well as many familiar faces returning to be a part of what Andy Jones, the Group Sales and Marketing Director for Synseal, called “the industry number one show.”

Machinery company contracts seem to be dominating the FIT Show inbox the most at present with the likes of Tim-ing Centar, Bassra Machine Tools Ltd, Kaban, and WPR Taka all signing on the dotted line. But it’s also been a busy couple of months for aluminium companies with names such as Alumil and Kawneer coming on board and adding their names to the list of aluminium companies who have already signed up for the show.

Trade association the GGF Group and the UKAS accredited IFC Certification Ltd have both booked their spot for 2017, as has recruitment company Chase Taylor Recruitment and software company MBN International Systems Ltd.

Other names to look out for who have all signed up include: SEA Group, MASCO UK Window Group, Lancashire Trade Frames, Lohmann Tapes, Architectural Vision Systems, DL Chemicals, Potterton Pacs Ltd, ODL Europe, Newton Steel Framing Ltd, and Brisant-Secure.

“We’re absolutely delighted with the ongoing interest we’ve had,” said Freya Humphries, Area Sales Manager for The FIT Show. “Having already exceeded the amount of floor space available at the last show by almost 50%, and with the amount of contracts we’ve got currently coming in, it’s obvious how excited people are for 2017’s show at the NEC.”

With an impressive 45% increase in visitors to this year’s FIT Show, with 8,500 window, door and conservatory fabricators, installers and other industry people making their way to Telford, the prospects are even greater for the NEC.
