It’s Time to Down Tools & Hotfoot it to FIT Show

We get it, you’ve got a backlog of leads to fulfil and your order book is looking pretty healthy for the foreseeable. You’re probably thinking there’s not much point in taking time off the tools to make a trip to FIT Show (NEC 23 - 25 May, 2023.) 

It’s only been a year since the last FIT Show, so there won’t be much new to see, and you can always go next year, right…? WRONG!

News Flash! After FIT Show this May, our tenth anniversary edition no less, FIT Show won’t return until May 2025. Can you afford to leave three years between your FIT Show visits by not attending this May? This is your chance to secure your future pipeline and drive long-term leads.

And if you think there won’t be anything new to see, you couldn’t be more wrong. Over 25% of the lineup is made of brands who have never exhibited before, and 40% are from overseas.

These are brands and products that you will never have seen at FIT Show before. In the last few weeks alone brands such as Sheerline (Garnalex), Whitesales, Supalite, Gerda Doors by Pioneer Trading, Saint-Gobain, Listers, Glazerite, Business Micros, Chekatrade, Mennie Canada.

Emmegi and Deponti have joined the lineup (And there are even more BIG names still to be announced!) Expect to see 200 brands showcasing thousands of the latest products.

Alongside new brands, you won’t want to miss the brand new Installer HUB feature with live product demos where you will be able to receive training and support on how to install the latest products on the market, as well as speak directly to the people who manufacture them.

Have you heard about our CPD Certified learning programme? We’ve teamed up with GGF & FENSA to curate a programme of 30+ hours of seminars, all delivered by industry experts. You will be able to attend free sessions like these:

  • ‘Facing the future: 2023 State of the Nation’
  • ‘How to avoid a race to the bottom’ (working for sales, selling more high margin products, wider themes)
  • ‘Market trends and expectations’ 
  • Building Regs – ‘Future Homes Standards’ & ‘The Building Safety Bill’
  • U-values and net zero goals - ‘Meeting the demand for the 100,000,000 windows which need replacing’
  • ‘Get social media fit; five easy ways to find and secure sales using social media’ 
  • ‘How to use storytelling to increase sales’
  • ‘Fire Doorsets: Legislation Changes’
  • ‘Regulation changes in roof lights and lanterns’
  • ‘Sustainable Glazing - the future of recycled glass’
  • ‘Pulse Testing - An alternative to trickle vents?’

You can view the full programme and register for these sessions via

You’ll be able to combine work and pleasure at FIT Show this May, with a mountain of exclusive show offers and discounts to take advantage of.

  • FIX Radio will be broadcasting live from the show and there will be competitions running when you’re on site.
  • Winkhaus will be offering up Virgin Experience Day vouchers as part of their on stand promotion.
  • Two visitors to ODL Europe’s stand will win £500 of holiday vouchers each.

Exhibitors will be offering genuine discounts on products and services that are exclusive to FIT Show - these are offers that you can only access if you attend this May.

Party Time! Did we mention, it’s our ten year anniversary event this May? Join us as we celebrate ten years of FIT Show and a decade of being the UK’s number one trade show for the window, door, glass, hardware and components industry.

To save you time off the tools, we’ll be opening late on Wednesday 24th May (10am to 8pm) so you can always join us after work.

And it wouldn’t be a late night at FIT Show without the PiG’s Party which is promising a BIG extravaganza with live music and an extra place to network after you’ve seen all of the latest products on the market.

There has never been a more important time to plan a trip to FIT. What are you waiting for? Down tools immediately and head to to register for your FREE ticket!
