With new testimonials coming in from the likes of Carl F Groupco, Distinction Doors, Trojan and more, here’s what they had to say:“The 2016 FIT Show was the first year Soudal UK exhibited and due to the success we have already booked our 2017 stand.During the show we captured over 400 leads and have since generated new business prospects.
“The move to the NEC seems positive and gives room for further growth within the show and Soudal are looking forward to be a part of this.”
– Kate Perrett, Marketing Manager, Soudal
“The 2016 FIT Show has been the most successful exhibition for Carl F Groupco to date, not just in the quanity of leads gathered, but the quality. We found that the calibre of visitors were very high and on the whole ready to be making purchase decisions and actively sourcing new products.
“The event, yet again, brought the industry together and provided us with the perfect platform to meet new prospects, entertain our existing customers and network with suppliers.
“We selected the FIT Show to launch our new brand SmartSecure, safe in the knowledge that it is the premier event for our industry. We signed up for the 2017 show at the NEC 5 months before the 2016 show and have every confidence that FIT Show’s success will continue into 2017.”
– Clare Crockett, Marketing Manager, Carl F Groupco
“The FIT Show is an important date in our calendar and we find it to be a valuable part of our sales and marketing strategy. We used the show this year to launch our LEKA solid roof, which is up to 40% lighter than alternative solid roof solutions and can achieve a U value of just 0.15.
The interest and buzz around the product was phenomenal and this has already translated into tangible results: we have signed up six installing partners as a direct result of the show. Moving the show to the NEW next year is an indication of the importance of the FIT Show to the industry and we are already looking forward to it.”
– Heidi Sachs, Managing Director, Modplan
“As the leading window and door hardware company in the UK, it is vital for us to have a presence at the leading window and door exhibition in the UK. This year, our stand showcased three ranges: our best-selling stainless steel range, our coloured products range and our new heavy duty Athena Door Hinge.
We proactively marketed the stainless steel range prior to the show and achieved plenty of high quality footfall as a result. As we would expect, all visitors to the stand were impressed with the quality of Trojan products and we have got a large number of qualified leads to follow up across our entire product range.
We look forward to being at the first NEW FIT Show next year and to seeing the show become an even more important date in the industry calendar.”
– Tony Chadwick, Group Managing Director, Trojan
“We recognise the FIT Show as the highlight of exhibition calendar for the UK door and window industry, which is why we chose it to unveil our next-generation composite door.
Visitors to the show are the well-informed decision makers we want to target and the interest and feedback we had from them about our game-changing new door was superb.
As the UK’s number one composite door company, we blaze a trail for others to follow and we were delighted to be able to showcase such an important product as such an important event.”
– Chantel Roach, Marketing Director, Distinction Doors
