It’s nearly FIT Show time again and it’s no surprise that tickets for the black-tie Gala Dinner are going fast.
Already one of the highlights of the industry’s social calendar, this year’s Gala Dinner, hosted by award-winning stand-up comic and ventriloquist Nina Conti, will feature a champagne reception and superb banquet followed by a charity casino and entertainment by Nina herself.
Last year’s giant Scalextric game is also back by popular demand with prizes for wannabe F1 champions… and it has now been revealed that the World Cup Surprise, long hinted as a feature of the show, will now take place at the dinner itself. What will it be? There’s only one way to find out – log on to www.fitshow.co.uk and grab the last of the tickets while you can.
“At the last count, there were fewer than 100 tickets left,” said Paul Godwin, Managing Director of the FIT Show. “Last year’s event was a sell-out with more than 800 attending, and this year half the tickets had gone even before the event went live on the FIT Show website, so anyone who hasn’t booked their tickets yet had better get moving or miss out.”
The dinner will offer an extra opportunity to network away from the bustle of the exhibition floor and many of the show’s trade sponsors and key speakers will also be there.
As well as the fun and fine dining, guests will hear the announcement of the Master Fitter Challenge winners, with prizes totalling over £10,000 up for grabs to reward the most skilled in our industry.
Compere Nina Conti is a winner of the BBC New Comedy awards and has extensive credits in comedy and acting roles around the world. Paul Godwin says the FIT Show team were knocked out by her act at the AEO Excellence Awards where FIT won Launch Show of the Year. “It is one of the most exciting, original and hilarious acts I have ever seen and we knew then we had to book her to top the bill.”
The FIT Show takes place at the Telford International Centre June 10th-12th with the FIT Show Gala Dinner on the evening of Wednesday June 11th.
