After already reporting that the move to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) had prompted a surge in exhibition stand bookings when launched discreetly to exhibitors back in December last year, bookings continue to come in thick and fast with more than 73% of the exhibition floor space snapped up.That is 40% more space again than the total at this year’s event, comfortably justifying the decision to move to the larger venue.
Making its presence felt early on, the aluminium sector has been busy signing up for FIT. Aside from major systems companies AluK and Reynaers confirming their place at FIT Show 2017, other companies to sign on the dotted line include: Origin, the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium bi-folding doors and windows, and Dutemänn, the trade specialist supplier of Schüco aluminium bi-fold doors; inline sliding doors and aluminium entrance doors and panels.
Adding to the already busy aluminium presence at FIT Show 2017, other recent sign ups have included plastics experts Röchling Engineering Plastics SE & Co. and advanced base and wall systems for conservatories company Durabase. These supplement such early adopters as Synseal, The Promac Group, Haffner Murat and VEKA.
“Aluminium is a huge part of the industry and it’s great to see so many companies wanting to get involved in FIT and exhibit their latest products, systems and innovative ideas,” said Paul Godwin, Managing Director of FIT Events Ltd, the company behind the FIT Show.
“We’re seeing new contracts from all sectors come across our desks every week. It’s an exciting time. It feels like a last minute rush before the show yet we still have 11 months to go so people are obviously just as exited as we are for the show to come around again.”
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.
