Everyone knows the FIT Show is set to be the big event of the glazing year. But now more and more major industry players are giving it a further boost by making it the launch pad for unveiling new products, initiatives and other events.
Big names like Rehau, Illbruck, and Business Micros are just a few of those promising significant new launches at the show, while others like Universal Arches are using it as a platform for a celebration.
“We’re really pleased that so many of the big-hitters see the show as such a major event in their calendar,” said Paul Godwin, Managing Director of the FIT Show. “They are not only paying us an enormous compliment but also helping to make the show even more of an absolute ‘must’ for everyone in the industry. This is only the second FIT Show and already it has become established as a key element of many company’s product development programmes.”
Rehau will be headlining with new multi-chambered profiles to bring its sculptured Total70s system to the same thermal efficiency spec as Total70c chamfered frames. Still on energy saving, Illbruck will launch its ‘Have One on Us’ campaign where the first 50 installers registering on its stand can fit out an entire house free of charge with its A-Rated window system containing its exclusive components. Visitors to the Business Micros stand can see an exclusive preview of the latest version of its LogiKal software as well as many other products. There will be celebrations on the Universal Arches stand where the company will be celebrating not only 20 years since it was founded but also its exclusive relationship with suppliers Residence 9 and Solidor. Many other exhibitors have plans still under wraps and many, such as Glazerite, are promising as many as six launches at the show.
As well as the FIT Show itself, at The International Centre Telford on June 10-12, will be the black-tie Gala Dinner on the night of the 11th featuring dining, dancing and cabaret hosted by award-winning stand-up comic Nina Conti as well as a tantalising ‘World Cup Surprise’ and the announcement of the Master Fitter Challenge winners, with prizes totalling over £10,000 up for grabs to reward the most skilled in our industry.
