The 2016 FIT Show appears to be have been a great success for both exhibitors and visitors alike. In all there were 182 stands.

Pre-registered visitors to the event at The International Centre in Telford were up 85% on the previous show in 2014, according to GGP Magazine.This year’s edition kicked off with TV personality and guest, George Clarke, opening the Master Fitter Challenge in which six installers competed live at the show, installing glazing products in front of the thousands of visitors at the event.The cash prizes totalled £10,000 with Craig Hanson of Pennine Windows being declared the winner.

George Clarke was present at the Truedor stand on Tuesday where he kindly met and snapped photos with customers and visitors alike.

Truedor’s comic book-style stand certainly stood out as one of the most creative at the show. Several of the company’s impressive contemporary composite doors were on display. This went down well with their customers and visitors, though was perhaps outdone by the Truemans Windows stand.

The event was a perfect opportunity for companies to introduce and demo their new products to their existing customers and visitors to the show.
