Stop listen and learn

As the old saying goes, knowledge is power, and at this year’s FIT Show there are going to be a wide range of seminar sessions and discussions, hosted by a broad spectrum of industry experts all designed to empower visitors with the insight and information.

For 2017, the FIT Show organisers have put together what they claims is the most comprehensive seminar programme yet, with a host of distinguished speakers covering a full spectrum of key topics for the window, door and conservatory industry. A total of 19 seminar sessions have been scheduled for the exhibition, all of which have been planned to provide show-goers with up-to-date advice on everything from market conditions, regulations and finance, to the latest sales, business and installation advice.

And, with a significant aluminium presence at the show, there will also be a separate and dedicated programme from systems house Aluk, which will be hosting a series of seminars focusing on the aluminium industry.

Visitors to the Expert Zone on Aluk’s stand (Q10) will have the opportunity to gain an insight into the state of the aluminium market from the likes of CAB chairman, Justin Ratcliffe, as well as get up to speed with the latest products, regulations and trends. All of which will prove to be vital information for any fabricators thinking about adding aluminium to their product offering.

Hardware specialist Maco will be hosting a ‘tweet and meet’ (#TNMP4), on stand E20 between 5pm-8pm on Tuesday May 23, that will invite guests to address a number of topics such as poor customer service and price increases, to more technical subjects such as PAS24 and DocQ. Presented in an informal and relaxed environment, Maco’s ‘tweet and meet’ will not only be a forum to discuss subjects that impact on the daily working lives of those in the glazing industry, but also a chance to catch up with old friends.  

All seminars, which take place on stand B70, are free to attend to FIT Show visitors. For more details on the full programme, visit For more information on the AluK seminars visit:
