Show debut

The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) will make its FIT Show debut when it exhibits at the glass and glazing event at the NEC next May.

Tamworth-based trade association DHF is a not-for-profit trade association for companies associated with locks and building hardware, doorsets, industrial doors and shutters, domestic garage doors, and automated gates.

DHF members, of which there are almost 500, will be able to showcase their products and services as part of a new DHF Members Zone at FIT Show 2021.

Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, DHF’s commercial manager, said: “DHF is the go-to place for technical advice and training which lends itself to raising the standards of the industry. We are regarded as the centre of excellence with a network of professional staff members as well as external consultants that can provide support in all sectors, making us a single source for technical expertise, information, knowledge, advice, and practical help.

“FIT Show is the ideal platform to not only promote DHF, but to highlight the fantastic work of our members and help them to engage with new audiences who may require their products or services.”

DHF will also contribute to the FIT Show learning programme, delivering topical presentations.

FIT Show’s event director Nickie West said: “The fact that over half of our visitor audience is made up of companies who have expressed an interest in sourcing doors, locks and hardware via the show makes FIT an ideal platform for the DHF and its members.”
