UK Pavilion at Fensterbau a ‘great success’

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) had a busy and productive week at the biennial Fensterbau Frontale – the world’s largest window exhibition held on 21-24 March in Nuremberg, Germany.

As hosts of the UK Pavilion – a 200 square metre space showcasing 12 prominent companies from the UK glazing industry – the GGF reflected positively on the four day show which had almost 1400 exhibitors, representing more than 40 countries and attracted 110,000 visitors from the international fenestration industry.

Shaun McAllister, GGF Managing Director commented:  “Firstly my thanks go to the 12 companies who co-exhibited on the UK Pavilion. Without them we would not have been able to promote the UK industry to this scale, at such a huge exhibition. I would also like to thank all the GGF team and our support staff who made the event run so successfully. All those who exhibited and visited the UK Pavilion, certainly seemed to enjoy the first class hospitality and networking.”

The theme of the UK Pavilion was “Britain Means Business” and the co-exhibitors certainly lived up to the theme with video presentations, product displays and live product demonstrations.

On the second day of the show, the UK Pavilion featured a unique British Reception – “An Afternoon G&T” which was sponsored by RegaLead who were co-exhibiting on the UK Pavilion, showcasing their cutting edge ColorSpray Aqua glass and PVC-U paint technology.

The co-exhibitors on the UK Pavilion included: FIT EventsGlazpart, GQA QualificationsHOPPE UKThe Jackloc CompanyMade forTradeReddiplexRegaLeadRITEC InternationalRoseview Windows and Window Ware.

James Lee, GGF Director of Marketing and Communications summarised, “In 2016, we launched the UK Pavilion with just five companies. This year we had 12 companies co-exhibiting and it is clear that there is a real interest from British companies in this exhibition. We will now gather feedback from our survey of all co-exhibitors and start planning 2020 at the end of this year. From the GGF perspective, we’re delighted the exhibition was a great success and that we promoted the GGF, our Members and the industry to an international audience.”
