FIT Show organisers have announced a restructure to its popular Gala Dinner evening by revising the format and holding the event in support of GM Fundraising and Hope House Children’s Hospices.
The event will take place on Wednesday 22nd May, following the second day of the 2019 FIT Show exhibition, at the NEC Resorts World complex in the VOX where the glass and glazing industry come together for a glittering celebration of its achievements.
Guests will enjoy a champagne reception from 7.00pm followed by a three-course meal served by the VOX’s award winning team led by Head Chef Aaron Johnson. As part of the evening, the FIT Show Award winners will be announced and guests will be invited to participate in a silent auction to help raise funds for its chosen charity.
FIT Show event director, Nickie West said: “We’ve taken on board the feedback of our audience and will be shaking up the format of the industry’s much loved celebratory event, taking the FIT Show Gala Dinner back to its roots.
“Our guests can expect an intimate evening of networking, celebrating the fantastic work that is being done throughout our industry with the FIT Show Awards and all whilst helping to raise much needed funds for GM Fundraising.”
GM Fundraising founder, Gary Morton added: “We're delighted that FIT Show will host its Gala Dinner in support of GM Fundraising and the fantastic team at Hope House Children’s Hospices. Our industry is like no other when it comes to supporting special causes.
“What better way to celebrate the brilliant work that is being done across the industry than coming together for this special evening, and raising much needed funds for a very worthy cause in the process?”
FIT Show 2019 will take place at the NEC Birmingham from 21st to 23rd May and will feature up to 300 exhibitors from across the window, door, conservatory and glass industry.
