It’s less than five months until FIT Show returns to the NEC for its ten year anniversary edition (May 23rd-25th, 2023.) Over the last decade, FIT Show has firmly established itself as the number one event for the UK glass, glazing, windows, doors, hardware and components industry.
The UK timber window market has demonstrated significant growth since 2014, which saw an uplift of 17.9% to 739,000 frames, and by 25.4% to £439m in installed value* (Palmer Report). It is anticipated that this growth is set to continue, although stalled slightly by global supply chain issues and the economic impact of COVID.
This growth is reflected by the representation of timber products at FIT Show. What started out as a predominantly UPVC trade show has evolved significantly to become a full showcase of the very best timber, aluminium, UPVC and composite products on the market.
Supported by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), the FIT Show 2023 roster of exhibitors includes brands such as Metsawood, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of engineered wood products, and timber window and door manufacturers Gowercroft and AB Staliu Gaminiai.
For brands who are looking to engage with builders, installers, specifiers and fabricators of timber products, FIT Show provides access to every link in the supply chain, all under one roof across three days. One third of the people who visited FIT Show in 2022 were specifically seeking composite and timber solutions.
Here’s why FIT Show 2023 should be an essential fixture in your business calendar this year:
UK’s only dedicated industry event
FIT Show is the UK’s only dedicated event for the fenestration industry. Exhibiting at FIT Show will give you access to a projected audience of 10,000 installers, builders, fabricators, specifiers, architects and local authorities all looking to find the latest products and innovations.
So much more than windows and doors
FIT Show has evolved to become much more than a windows and doors event. Alongside the show’s core UPVC, aluminium, timber and hardware line-up, FIT Show has introduced new features for outdoor living related products, lifting equipment and so much more.
A decade of innovation
When the FIT Show returns this May, it will be ten full years since the show launched. This is your chance to help celebrate ten years since the launch of FIT Show, and a decade of being the UK’s number one trade show for the glass, glazing, hardware and components industry.
FIT Show marketing machine
For brands looking to unlock the power of exhibiting at FIT Show, the sooner you sign up to exhibit, the sooner you can start benefiting from the huge marketing machine that powers FIT Show. Our dedicated in-house team of experts are on hand to help your business get the best possible ROI out of exhibiting.
No show until 2025
After FIT Show 2023 this May there will be no show until 2025. Can you afford to leave a two year gap before engaging with the market, en masse at FIT Show? As a visitor, can you wait a full two years before seeing and comparing the latest products on the market, side-by-side?
A full line-up
Over 85% of space has now been allocated and 20% of the FIT Show 2023 list of exhibitors is made up of brands who are completely new to FIT Show. If you are thinking about exhibiting, it’s likely that your competitors are going to be there. And if you’ve visited before, but think there won’t be anything new to see, the line-up includes a wide breadth of launch brands who are lining up to show you the very latest products and innovations.
Free to attend and budget friendly rates
For visitors, FIT Show is completely free to attend. Registration is already open so you can lock the biggest days of the fenestration calendar on the FIT Show website. For exhibitors, walk on stand packages are available from as little as £3000. The FIT Show team of experts is on hand to help you at every step of the journey.
