FIT Show event organisers have announced that over 40% of its exhibiting brands will be making their FIT Show debuts. Brands including Rockdoor, Exlabesa, Solar Calibre, STORM Building Products, UK Doors Online and Adminbase are all set to premiere at FIT Show.
Visitor pre registration figures continue to track at over 100% above the figures for the same period in the campaign for its 2019 event, reinforcing the industry’s unwavering appetite for its flagship trade show.
The report follows the UK Government's announcement that the final stage of the easing of lockdown restrictions is to be delayed from June 21st to July 19th, at which point all restrictions on social distancing, travel and mass gatherings are anticipated to be lifted.
When FIT Show returns to the NEC (September 26 - 28, 2021), visitors can expect a lineup of over 200 exhibitors from across the home improvement industry. The industry will come together to see the very latest products on the market for the first time since 2019.
Natasha Erskine, UK Doors Online marketing director comments: “As a new start up, we think exhibiting at FIT Show is the perfect opportunity to showcase our business and let the trade know about the services we can offer.
“Industry exhibitions provide a unique opportunity to reach the whole market, and even though we are still newbies we couldn’t pass on the chance to really get our name out there and show how good we are at FIT.”
Bruce Mitchell, STORM Building Products MD added: “The FIT Show is a fantastic opportunity to connect with the best in the industry and STORM will be launching our exclusive mineral-based decking, DECKORATORS®, along with our new canopy system.
“As FIT Show is the only dedicated event in the UK for our industry, STORM will be there to showcase the outdoor living products and solutions we offer to support your projects.”
FIT Show event director Nickie West commented: “We’re excited by the breadth of brands that make our stellar FIT Show lineup. The fact that over 40% of the brands that are due to exhibit will be making their FIT Show debut is a major pull for visitors.
“And visitor appetite for FIT Show remains strong with an unprecedented level of early registrations. We’re all looking ahead to September as a crucial marker in the industry’s roadmap as we strive to get back to face-to-face business and reconnect with the market.
“FIT Show will present the first opportunity for the market to see, touch and compare the latest products side-by-side since 2019. I’m excited to welcome our new and returning brands, and our visitors, when we open the doors to FIT Show 2021.”
FIT Show is the UK’s number one, award-winning showcase for the glass, glazing, window, door, hardware and components industry. FIT Show will return to the NEC 26 - 28 September 2021.
