Wanting more companies to feel the ‘FIT Effect’, this year’s FIT Show has just got bigger thanks to the opening of Hall 1A at The International Centre Telford. The Hall will include a number of new exhibitors in addition to a considerably enlarged FIT Theatre, in which the FIT for Business Seminar programme will take place. With the June event being the last FIT Show for almost two years, a steady flow of exhibition stand bookings continues to be received.
Opening the new hall has also enabled the organisers to create a new initiative for first time FIT Show exhibitors. Called First FIT a limited number of low-cost inclusive stands – starting at £3000 + VAT – have been created for companies putting their toe in the FIT show water for the first time. The FIT Show’s sales director Jason Wootton says the initiative has been introduced after an audit revealed the significant number of exhibitors that have sized up their stands for this year: “We found that a considerable number of companies re-booking for this year increased their stand size and investment after their success at the first event. That gave us the confidence to introduce this scheme,” said Jason.
Last year’s award-winning inaugural FIT Show proved to be a huge success for exhibitors and visitors alike, producing an average of 147 sales enquiries for each of the 170 exhibitors that took part. With 90% of stand space booked three months ahead of the event the organisers have released a further allocation of stands in a variety of costs, sizes and configurations in Hall 1A. To ensure an excellent flow of visitors the facility will enjoy its own dedicated entrance and is located adjacent to one of the busiest bar/cafes in the venue.
The FIT Theatre will provide a home for seminars such as the daily, extended presentation by sales guru Paul Clifton. Paul will take to the stage to advise visitors on how to enter the elite league of sales people that convert more than 80% of their conservatory leads. This and all other presentations are designed to offer visitors information and advice that they can put together immediately in their business and, with entry completely free of charge visitors are encouraged to pre book their seats through the FIT Show web site to ensure they get a place.
The 2014 FIT Show will take place at The International Centre Telford on 10th, 11th, 12th June. More information can be found at www.fitshow.co.uk, on Twitter @fitshow and Facebook, www.facebook.com/fitshowuk.
