Event comments

James Lee, Head of GGF Group Marketing: “Fensterbau has seen a much stronger British presence than in previous years. Thanks to our five co-exhibitors, made up of high profile UK companies and GGF Members the whole event proved a great success.”

Dean Bradley of Glazpart: We met with potential clients from over 20 countries and we were pleased to launch some new products in frame corner protection at the show. UK Pavilion was ideal as it allowed the group of exhibitors to cost effectively work together, increasing our impact and presence at the show.”

Matthew Glover, Chairman of The FIT Show: It was a very productive few days for the FIT Show and we’ll certainly be keen to take part again in 2018.”

Derek Brown, RITEC International Business Development Manager: “This was our first Fensterbau and it was an unqualified success for us. The stand was always busy and we accumulated many high quality leads from all over the world. We would very much like to return in 2018.”
