Relax in style at the 2017 FIT Show

have-you-booked-your-fit-show-hotel-yet-the-necs-resorts-world-entertainment-complex-is-a-stones-throw-away-from-a-large-selection-of-hotelsBoasting five hotels within a 10 minute walk, as well as more then 18 cafes, restaurants and bars, over 50 retail outlets and even an IMAX cinema courtesy of the adjacent Resorts World entertainment complex, the venue for next year’s FIT Show is now not only more accessible for exhibitors and visitors, but it promises a lot more choice away from the exhibition halls as well.

With the 2017 FIT Show just under seven months away, and with many exhibitors already planning on how best to impress the many thousands of visitors that are expected to flood through the doors at Birmingham’s NEC in May next year, the event’s organisers are heralding it as the biggest and busiest FIT yet.

And while the new, more spacious home for FIT will undoubtedly allow the companies who have confirmed for the show to really go to town with the design of their stands, it also has a lot more options for those who want to relax and unwind over the course of the three day exhibition – including hundreds of first class rooms, a brace of luxury spas, gyms and even the UK’s largest casino – without having to stray too far from the hustle and bustle of the main event.

FIT Show Event Director, Nickie West, said: “The main reason to relocate the FIT Show to Birmingham for 2017 was the fact that, with a 45% increase in visitors to Telford in 2016, it was clear that we needed room for the event to grow.

“A lot of people will of course spend the majority of their time during FIT hard at work in the exhibition centre itself, but with five hotels within walking distance, including the Hilton Metropole, Crowne Plaza and Genting, plus all the attractions at the nearby Resorts World, there’s so much variety in terms of accommodation for both exhibitors and visitors, the latter of which may very well want to spend more than one day discovering what the 2017 FIT Show has to offer.”
