After a busy few weeks surrounding this year’s FIT Show, it is now time to reflect on the good and the bad of this year’s show. Barrie Smith-Wright (Group Director of Sales for the Kinnell Group) comments;

“A first for us this year was running a stand as QANW alone, at first this seemed a bit daunting but we soon realised that any reservations were misplaced. Fellow exhibitors and visitors popped by our stand to say hi and have a chat about anything insurance backed guarantee related which meant our stand was constantly busy. We also think the free doughnuts might have had something to do with our popularity with these going down a treat!

Our stand was situated near the Insight Theatre meaning there was a constant buzz of people, talks and some exciting demonstrations throughout the 3 days which helped keep the footfall up. The team and I personally enjoyed the live debate on Thursday morning, “Scaling the skills gap” and the live demonstrations from “Tibby’s Top Tools”. Another subject of particular interest to us was the “Breaking Glass” chat at the Discovery Theatre with this being an area we are currently focusing on through our in-house broker, looking to ensure that businesses can access appropriate cover to meet their needs.

This show has developed massively with this year not seeming to attract as many installers as previously, we would suggest that going forward the management at FIT consider this when marketing the event.

All in all – a very enjoyable and worthwhile event…”

A definite highlight of the show was the PiGS late night event in which we took the opportunity to sponsor a drinks package and attend the event. It really was a great night with people from across the industry getting together and enjoying some live music- which we were happy to host on our stand!

Finally, we would like to say a thank you to everyone who visited us throughout the show and would like to welcome on board any new members that we have gained.
