FAKRO confirms sponsorship of 2017 BMF All-Industry Conference

Published:  05 January, 2016

FAKRO has confirmed its headline sponsorship of the BMF All-Industry Conference in 2017.

The roof window manufacturer has been the event’s headline sponsor since the BMF’s new-style All-Industry Conference began in 2013.

John Newcomb, managing director of the BMF, said: “We are delighted that FAKRO is to sponsor the BMF All-Industry Conference for a third time. The last two have both been hugely successful, with delegate numbers increasing each year. We have already started planning for 2017 and it promises to be the best event yet, so watch out for details of dates and venue later in the year.”

Noel Shanahan, managing director of FAKRO, added: “We are pleased to continue our association with the BMF All-Industry Conference. It is a great event that brings the whole industry together to benefit from new ideas, fresh thinking, meeting old friends and developing new relationships.”

FAKRO is also looking forward to a busy year in 2016, starting with a conference and gala dinner in January at its head office in Poland to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. This will be followed by a UK nationwide roadshow programme and a series of one-day events at merchants to demonstrate products and meet customers.

Mr Shanahan continued: “We will be improving and increasing the insulation performance of all FAKRO windows, while also enhancing aesthetics and ensuring faster and easier installation. New products such as a new ‘walk on’ flat roof window with a wide range of colour options will be available from early 2016. All new product activity will be supported with an extensive marketing and sales programme designed to support the merchant and bring customers to the trade counter requesting FAKRO products. This includes major exhibition stands at the National Home Building & Renovating Show and, for the first time, at Grand Designs Live London.”
