With F Scott Fitzgerald’s literary masterpiece The Great Gatsby described as exploring ‘themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess…’ some might believe the book could provide the perfect theme for an event staged for the British glass and glazing industry. And that is just what the organisers of The FIT Show thought when they set the scene for next year’s Gala Dinner, which takes place on the middle evening of the show at the Telford venue.

The sold out, packed full-house of 900 revelers will party to a backdrop of the Roaring Twenties and just as then partying hard and dancing will be the key pursuits of the evening. Unlike the prohibition that party-goers so skillfully worked their way around at that time alcohol will be readily available at the Gala Dinner but a host of other cultural cues will give the event a high society, glamorous feel and the ultimate in luxury will be the theme throughout.

Guests will believe they have travelled back in time says Nickie West, Event Director for The FIT Show: “The Great Gatsby is the theme for the whole evening, from when guests enter the party until they leave. “It will apply to everything although we want everyone to be surprised and wow’d so we are not going to reveal too much beforehand. Just come dressed for the evening and ready for a great night out!”

The Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show takes place at The International Centre Telford on 12th, 13th 14th April 2016. Although the Gala Dinner is sold out visitors to the FIT Show itself can reserve their free tickets now by visiting: http://www.fitshow.co.uk/reserve-your-tickets
