Fast-growing sash window manufacturers Victorian Sliders have confirmed that they’ll be exhibiting at the rescheduled 2021 FIT Show this September.
The fenestration sector’s biggest and most celebrated trade event had originally been planned for May. However, following the announcement of a third national coronavirus lockdown, the decision was taken to postpone it until September.
It’s a move that Victorian Sliders completely endorses, as Group Managing Director Andy Jones explains.
“I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we totally support the FIT Show in choosing to reschedule.
“If we’ve all learned anything in the last year, it’s that the pandemic is extremely unpredictable – and when the third lockdown was imposed in response to rapidly rising cases, it quickly became clear that an event of that kind just wouldn’t be feasible in the Spring.
“In the long run, I actually think it’ll make for a more successful show. By the late summer, tens of millions of people around the country will have been vaccinated, and I suspect more will attend as a result.
“After a year in which the usual business meetings and network events haven’t been possible, there’s a real appetite to get together, take stock, and see what the best firms in British fenestration have to offer in 2021.
“Hopefully, if all goes to plan, and restrictions on large gatherings are relaxed, we’ll be showcasing a host of new innovations on what will be our biggest ever FIT Show stand by far.
“We’re looking forward to seeing customers and friends from throughout the industry at the NEC in September.”
FIT Show event director, Nickie West added: “We’re really excited to have secured the support of Victorian Sliders for our September event. We are anticipating that there will be more new products on display than ever at FIT Show 2021, and we can always rely on Victorian Sliders to put on a show-stopping display of the latest sliding sash windows.
“We know that our trade visitors, installers in particular, will be heading straight to the Victorian Sliders stand to see, touch and feel these latest products for the very first time.”
