With F Scott Fitzgerald’s literary masterpiece The Great Gatsby described as exploring ‘themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess…’ some might believe the book could provide the perfect theme for an event staged for the UK's glass and glazing industry. And that is just what we thought when we set the scene for the 2016 Gala Dinner which takes place as usual in The International Centre, venue for The FIT Show.
900 revelers will party to a backdrop of the Roaring Twenties and just like then partying hard and dancing will be the key pursuits of the evening. Unlike the prohibition, that party-goers so skillfully worked their way around at that time, alcohol will be readily available at the FIT Show Gala Dinner but a host of other cultural cues will give the event a high society, glamorous feel and the ultimate in luxury will be the theme throughout.
Guests will believe they have travelled back in time as The Great Gatsby is the theme for the whole evening, from when guests enter the party until they leave. Guests are encouraged to come dressed for the evening and ready for a great night out!
