“As an event organiser, I am hugely sympathetic to both Fensterbau and its exhibitors following the announcement that the March 2020 event is being postponed due to the growing threat of Coronavirus.
“On behalf of the whole FIT Show team, we would like to extend our sympathies and support to the Fensterbau team and its exhibitors, which includes the European arms of a number of FIT Show’s own exhibitors.
“Fensterbau, like many exhibitions, and indeed businesses on a global scale, are having to react and deal with circumstances that none of us could have foreseen or adequately prepared for.
“I do not underestimate how difficult this must have, and will continue to be, for the entire team. From the people working hard behind the scenes to prepare for another successful show, through to its exhibitors and visitors who will have been making the same preparations.
“FIT Show, including myself and a number of the UK team, were due to host a reception as part of the GGF Members Pavillion at Fensterbau next month, and look forward to supporting the show in the same way when it returns later in the year.
"I have every confidence that the whole industry will pull together to deliver a first class Fensterbau 2020, and I look forward to supporting the show when it returns.”
