FIT Show is celebrating a decade of being the UK’s number one trade show for the glass, glazing, hardware and components industry. We’ve come a long way since we launched in 2013. Here’s a look back at how it all started…
FIT Show Brand Story
Before 2013 - before FIT Show - those Installers who sought to build a better business for themselves and better places to live for the people of our country faced a problem. They wanted to advance, but they were busy people.
The great innovators, the businesses who gave ambitious Installers the tools to make people’s homes more attractive, comfortable, flexible, warm and secure were out there, but spread across the land.
They were not always easy to find.
How could the enterprising Installer be sure they had the right products, the right suppliers?
How could they find new products which would keep them competitive and different?
How could they compare those products to others?
How could they learn about the latest technologies, innovations and ideas to improve their company?
To make them more financially secure and their customers happier in their homes?
How could they possibly rely on the internet to identify all that was out there?
Even if they could, how could they even spare the days it would take to find everything, let alone go and see everything?
HOW COULD AMBITIOUS AND TALENTED PEOPLE REALISE THEIR POTENTIAL WITHOUT A PLATFORM TO SUPPORT THAT AMBITION?

PRODUCTS WERE BOUGHT, DEALS WERE DONE, CONNECTIONS WERE MADE, RELATIONSHIPS WERE REAFFIRMED, IDEAS WERE ABSORBED.
They went from ambitious but frustrated business owners to ambitious, world-class business owners.
That is the story of FIT Show. The story of the ambitious Installer who needs a platform to help them to fulfil their ambition.
Many things have changed since 2013. Technology has changed, as have market dynamics and the habits and behaviours of those inside and outside of the industry.
FIT Show has gotten bigger. Much bigger.
