Checkatrade is set to make its debut at FIT Show while CR Laurence will return to the event at Birmingham’s NEC 10-12 May to showcase its glass rooms.

Checkatrade has 44,000 trade members across the UK which are vetted by their customers who report their experience via the Checkatrade website. The firm will be exhibiting at FIT to raise awareness of the benefits of membership and to talk to installers about the demand it is currently seeing across all trades to sign up.



 “Over the past two years the home improvement market has experienced exceptionally strong growth, bolstered by the increased amount of time we’ve all spent at home during the pandemic. We’re always on the lookout for great trades who can help us meet the intense demand we’re seeing from homeowners.”

– Alex Cubitt 

Chief Growth Officer, Checkatrade


Making the most of it

“Exhibiting at FIT Show gives us the opportunity to speak directly to tradespeople about how Checkatrade can support them both now and in the future,” adds Checkatrade’s Cubitt. “8 of 10 consumers would choose a Checkatrade endorsed trade and so there’s a great opportunity for us to help trades make the most of the current market conditions.”


Glass Rooms

Speaking about (CRL) CR Laurence’s decision to exhibit at FIT Show 2022, Simon Boocock, MD says: “The event attracts everyone from fabricators and installers through to architects and specifiers – the market we want to promote our Glass Room solutions to. CRL Glass Rooms are simple to construct, providing shelter from the elements and providing unobstructed views. With an intelligent modular design, the aluminium structure means very few supports are needed even over large areas.

“The connectors give a high degree of flexibility with many variations possible,” adds Boocock. “Optional extras include sliding doors, vertical blinds and roof blinds to create spaces that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.”


Nickie West

Speaking about Checkatrade’s presence, event director Nickie West said: “Our visitors will be able to tap into the expertise of the huge household name of Checkatrade. Their team will be on hand to offer advice and support about better promoting businesses to homeowners. Any platform that promotes quality and connects installers with homeowners can only be a good thing.”

CRL has long supported FIT Show, having exhibited in 2016, 2017 and 2019. Nickie West said: “CR Laurence is a brilliant brand for our visitors. Like many companies, CRL has experienced a surge in demand on the back of the pandemic – we’re looking forward to seeing their Glass Rooms up close and personal at FIT Show.”
