The Glass & Glazing Federation and Fensa have announced a successful FIT Show for both organisations who offered industry peers a bank of information on areas such as recruiting new talent, upskilling, winning new business, and changes to building regulations.
Anda Gregory, chief development officer at the GGF explains: “Visitors to the FIT Show were evidently hungry for more information on many issues. It was clear to see from the number of visitors coming to see us during the show that companies want to apply best practice and do the right thing but are struggling to find all the answers they need. It was great to share our expertise and knowledge on both of our stands, but also at the series of talks we gave throughout the show. The seminars were packed out and were well received by all who attended.
“The GGF’s Skilled Pathways Scheme and training offering also went down a storm at the show because companies could see that it has everything they need to attract new talent and offer full training programmes to employees. Similarly, the Fensa stand was inundated with people keen to learn more about the changes to Building Regulations. We had a mixture of visitors to both stands too – a vast number of members looking for more advice and guidance, as well as many more new faces looking to become members.
Anda continues: “Despite the many challenges we have ahead, as we all anticipated, the show brought with it an immense sense of positivity, which was great to see. Meeting with industry peers, both members and non-members, face to face again was a wonderful reminder of how well we can all work together. Both the GGF and Fensa enjoyed catching up with colleagues in person to provide the trusted expertise that the industry was clearly so hungry for, but we are also looking forward to working with all aspects of the industry to offer our support on an ongoing basis.”
