GGF set to mix business and pleasure at FIT Show 2019

  • 15 May 2019

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and its group of commercial subsidiaries are ready for a fantastic FIT Show at Birmingham’s NEC (21 – 23 May), with a range of promotions, prizes and presentations, on a stand packed full of surprises.

The stand, F40 in Hall 20, will feature a demonstration area with technical, training and health and safety experts, who will be sharing their knowledge and taking questions from visitors.

In addition, the GGF stand will have large wide screen monitors with videos displays, highlighting the benefits of the GGF and its subsidiary brands.


Of a less high tech nature, there will also be a mini putting green, with visitors invited to show off their golfing skills, with those lucky enough to sink a hole in one entered into a prize draw. 

Training is a major theme at this year’s show and the GGF are recognising this, with Andy Clegg of Fenestrology providing live product demonstrations every morning and afternoon on the stand.

Richard Hearn, GGF Head of Training, will also be attending, taking any questions and bookings for the GGF’s accredited training courses for installers and surveyors.

To complement the training demos and seminars, the GGF is also giving away money off vouchers, offering 20% off all GGF Training Courses booked using the training vouchers. Visitors can collect their 20% off training vouchers from the GGF stand.

The GGF will also be giving away branded items, such as pens, memory sticks and stress balls and all visitors to the stand on the Late Night Tuesday (6pm to 8pm) can expect a fun surprise.

If you are planning to extend your visit into the first evening of the show, feel free to visit the GGF stand and enjoy the fun.

Though a lot is happening on the GGF’s stand there’s also a lot going on off it in the FIT Show Seminar Programme.

The GGF and its commercial companies are delighted to support and participate in the FIT Show Seminar Programme at this year’s show.

Kevin Buckley, GGF Group Chief Executive (pictured below), will present the opening seminar on 21 May at 10:30am in the Insight Theatre in Hall 20.

In his presentation, Kevin will cover the major issues affecting the industry such as the impact of Brexit, fire safety, energy efficiency and the skills shortage in the construction industry.


Kevin will reveal some interesting findings from the GGF’s recent extensive market research and underline how the GGF is leading the way by helping companies cope with the issues that are changing in the trading environment.

The GGF and its subsidiary companies are presenting eight seminars in total, where more information can be found by clicking this link –
