The desire for getting FIT amongst the glass and glazing industry shows no sign of abating as exhibitors rush to sign up for the next installation of the Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show.
Hot off the heels of April’s inaugural show, which saw more than 170 exhibitors filling all four halls of The International Centre, Telford, the organisers have confirmed that over 50% of exhibition space for The FIT Show 2014 is already occupied; a full year ahead of its hosting.
Exhibitor demand for 2014 commenced before the 2013 event had ended as composite door manufacturers Solidor once again became the first company to commit.
After witnessing the widely hailed success of the show, many other existing exhibiting companies have followed suit after being given first chance to rebook, with many opting to move to larger stands.
Several brand new names are also now on-board and contracts have been issued for a further 15% of the available stand space, which has posed a very welcome headache for the FIT Show sales team.
FIT Show Sales Director Jason Wootton says that finding space and the right size of space is the issue:
“It has been a good problem to have but because 2013 was a complete sell-out it was even more important that existing exhibitors were able to confirm their requirements for 2014 first. Only then will we take care of the requirements of the many new companies wanting space for 2014.
“With contracts signed and others we are waiting to be returned, we have around 70% of space booked already for 2014. Plus, we are still trying to get through dozens of enquiries and others that have not yet confirmed either way.
“Companies that are interested in taking space at The FIT Show next year should indicate their interest as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
The 2014 FIT Show will take place at The International Centre, Telford, from 10th-12th June. More event information can be found at www.fitshow.co.uk .
