At The FIT Show our Members will also be invited to take full advantage of the hospitality in our special ‘Life Begins at 40’ Members lounge.

The FIT Show is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our 40th anniversary with the industry, and we are looking forward to welcoming both Members and non-Members for a few drinks and some fun entertainment!”

GGF seminar programme

The GGF’s extensive seminar programme will include three topical presentations from GGF experts on home improvement, technical and health and safety:

23rd May (12:10 – 12:40pm) – Don’t get mad! Get even!

Brian Smith, Director of GGF Home Improvement explains how the GGF’s conciliation process can turn a nightmare into a dream.

24th May (12:10 – 12:40pm) – A guide to glazing in conservation areas

Presentation by Russell Day, GGF Technical Officer, on installing glazing in conservation areas. The talk covers the planning framework, the process with local planning officers and the work the GGF Heritage Window Group is doing to change hearts and minds on an issue that’s costing installers millions of pounds each year.

25th May (12:10 – 12:40pm) – Accident will happen! But why risk it?

GGF Director of Health and Safety Phil Pinnington discusses why more company directors are being fined and in some cases imprisoned for negligence. Phil advises how companies can easily avoid the worst case scenarios.
