The FIT Show 2016



This week, the biggest trade exhibition for the window, door and conservatory industry was held at the International Centre in Telford. With manufPR agency Manchesteracturers, suppliers and installers showing off hundreds of new products and services from their stands spanning across three halls, it was clear that many of the exhibitors had gone all out with this year’s event. One of the stands was set up to look like a the coffee shop in the US sitcom Friends, another one was pop art-inspired, and there were even some Only Fools and Horses lookalikes!

  

We went on the last day of the event to visit our client The Glass and Glazing Federation, who had two seminar slots – one looking at consumer issues and the other one unveiling the new energy saving calculator.

 

During the first seminar, the GGF’s director of home improvement Brian Smith introduced the audience to the GGF’s new and revised Consumer Code of Practice, which takes into account new consumer legislation and has been approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. Covering sales, surveys, products, installation and the guarantee, the code of practice outlines how GGF members should work and deal with consumers and outlines the benefits of using a GGF member to homeowners.

 

In the second seminar, GGF technical officer Micky Sulston introduced the attendees to the brand new energy saving calculator, which enables homeowners to work out approximately how much they could potentially save on their energy bills if they upgraded their windows with modern, energy efficient glazing. Micky gave a live demonstration of the new online tool, which can be found on the consumer-facing website MyGlazing.com, and it’s user friendly, looks great and helps you to understand how new windows could benefit your home, your bank balance and the environment!
