The Fabric Installer Trade Show (FIT) will move from Telford International Centre to the NEC in May 2017.
The reason for the move is a need for further exhibiting space after the sell-out success of the previous three shows.
Paul Godwin, MD of FIT Events Ltd and organiser of The FIT Show, said: “A move was inevitable to handle the continuing demand for exhibition space and to allow the development of the event generally, including visitor numbers. The NEC ticks all the boxes; offering a flexible space and a central location with fantastic transport links meaning that visitors and exhibitors from across the UK will be able to access the venue with ease.
“The FIT Show returns an event for this industry to the NEC, where the last national glazing exhibition ran for more than 30 years.”
Richard Mann, business development director for the NEC, said: “Not only can the NEC offer the flexible space organisers need to physically grow their shows, we can also provide reassurance that all the requirements of their growing show will be met, thanks to our 40 years of experience of delivering for our customers. We know FIT Show has great potential for growth, and we’re excited to be working closely with FIT Events to help them do just that in 2017 and beyond.”
The inaugural NEC show will take place on 23-25 May 2017 and then return to the venue from 21-23 May 2019.
