FIT To Go Again in 2023

The organiser of the FIT Show has announced dates for its 10th anniversary event as 23-25 May 2023. The event will take place in Halls  9, 10, and 11 at Birmingham’s NEC.

2023 will mark ten years since FIT launched at The Telford exhibition centre which hosted three successful events before FIT out-grew the venue. It moved to the NEC in 2017.


 “We are holding the event next year to sync our dates with Fensterbau. We are not planning to make FIT an annual event, I really don't think that there is an appetitive in the industry for that but it is equally important that we don't clash with Fensterbau.”

– Nickie West 

Event director, FIT Show, Montgomery Exhibitions


Out and about

Speaking at the 2022 event, West continued: “People seem really delighted to be out and about and able to meet up again. There is a lot of investment in this show, not just from the bigger companies but from small firms as well. They have invested not just money but a lot of time and passion to be here.”

West is also managing director of the Montgomery Design & Build Portfolio so is well versed in getting shows organised to suit the market – and visitors. She added: “Unfortunately, we lost a number of overseas exhibitors. We had a big Chinese contingent who were locked down by Covid and our Turkish exhibitors were unable to get visas in time – but people from the industry pulled together to put on a smashing event – the number of visitors has been very pleasing.

“We are now really looking forward to the 2023 event. Re-bookings are strong and we are already in talks with several major companies who are not here this year.”


Odd years

FIT Show will continue to follow a biennial frequency, placing the show in Fensterbau Frontale’s ‘off year’. The May 2023 edition will be followed by FIT Show 2025 and return every other year thereafter.
