FIT Show Highlights 2023

We are pleased to announce another successful year at FIT Show 2023 which took place at the NEC in Birmingham over three days last week. The show brought together many of the glass and glazing specialists from across the UK, and it was nice to be back at stand number S51 to showcase the latest innovations in Smartlift glass lifting technology.

Here are some highlights from the and Smartlift stand from this year’s show.

Day 1

The team got off to a busy start from day one with a newly improved stand welcoming visitors from across the glass and glazing industry. We were pleased to meet both new and existing connections and showcase the latest innovations from Smartlift such as the new generation SL 409 HLE RT and SL 609 HLE RT glazing robots.

Many of our guests were impressed at how far Smartlift vacuum lifting technology has evolved over the last year. Our experts were able to demonstrate new functionality including the latest enhancements to the remote control unit of the SL 409 and SL 609.

Day 2

After a brilliant first day filled with lots of discussions and a few verbal agreements, the second day was the one that everyone was looking forward to with an extended opening time to help make the most of what the show has to offer with our very own team even getting the opportunity to relax a little and explore the exhibition halls.

The round off another excellent day, John Burton (Director at was approached for an interview by FIT T.V to explain some of the advantages of Smartlift glass lifting robots – you can watch the interview below!

Day 3

With the FIT Show 2023 about to come to an end, we expected the halls to be less busy than usual, however, this was not the case with day 3 foot traffic been just as busy as days 1 and 2. We were able to round off another great year at FIT Show by obtaining even more new contacts and arranging on-site demonstrations of Smartlift glazing robots.

FIT Show 2023 has built upon the success of previous shows and we are very thankful to the organisers for giving and Smartlift a stage to showcase the latest innovations in glass and glazing lifting technologies.

Of course, the show wouldn’t be what it is without those who attend it, and we would like to offer a big thank you to everyone who came to see us on stand S51 – both new and existing connections. We hope and look forward to doing business with you in the near future.
