This time it really is coming home! FENEX, the UK fenestration sector’s first virtual exhibition platform, is responding to clear demand and will host its first every in-person expo at the popular Telford International Centre in April of 2023.

In previous shows, the UK fenestration sector made the Telford International Centre it’s home. There was a lot of love and connection with the TIC. The industry took over the entire space. It had great travel connections. It had great amenities and was affordable for those taking part and those who were visiting. There was a real community spirit when the sector descended on Telford, and FENEX is going to bring that back to the fenestration industry in April 2023.

FENEX At Telford

The announcement of an in-person event at what is the spiritual home of UK fenestration completes the vision of FENEX. It was launched as a virtual platform in 2020 during the pandemic and has continued to grow ever since. But the beauty of having both virtual and in-person events means FENEX can offer everything to everyone.

For those interested in just a virtual offering, there is the main event in September of this year, plus a full virtual events calendar throughout 2022. For companies who wish to attend an in-person event, there is now the FENEX Expo at Telford in April 2023. Although it is anticipated that the majority of exhibitors will take part in both the digital and physical shows.

Co-founder of FENEX Lee Clarke said: “we see the show at Telford as a strategic part of our future plans to accommodate the need for live and virtual exhibitions, now and in the years to come. We believe the TIC really is the fenestration industry’s ideal choice. After many conversations with key industry figures, it was a no-brainer to push forward with the sector’s first hybrid event.”

Fellow co-founder Jason Grafton-Holt commented: “This is a major step for FENEX and continues to build our vision of a trade show that offers both virtual and in-person events. Telford was incredibly popular with both visitors and exhibitors so it was the natural choice for us. It’s clear there has been demand for a long time to go back to what is now seen as our sector’s spiritual home. FENEX is now the platform that offers every option to every company and that is a very exciting prospect.”

FENEX will be investing significant sums of money in their programme of shows over the next few years, with £850,000 of budget going towards the marketing of the events, the trailblazing software used for the virtual exhibitions, and of course the Telford show in 2023.
