FIT Show’s popular Gala Dinner has undergone a glittering makeover ahead of its return for 2019. The event will take place on Wednesday 22nd May and will debut at NEC Resorts World, in The VOX.
Taking on board feedback from its audience, organisers have announced a restructure to the Gala Dinner and have taken it back to its roots as a networking platform for the industry. The evening will include entertainment from a swing band, alongside several opportunities to network and celebrate.
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. This year’s event will also be held in support of GM Fundraising and Hope House Children’s Hospices, with a silent auction on the night.
FIT Show event director, Nickie West said: “We’re really excited about this year’s Gala Dinner which is set to be a spectacular event which very much celebrates the achievements of the industry. We’ve worked hard to take the evening back to its roots, creating a relaxed atmosphere for our guests to network, reconnect with their customers and make new connections too.
“It was a natural decision for us to hold the event in aid GM Fundraising and Hope House Children’s Hospices - this is a cause that we know is close to a lot of people throughout the industry and beyond.”
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.
