Shower manufacturer Roman, and shower tray manufacturer JT, have announced Burge and Gunson as the winner of their exclusive prize draw, which was held at the 'Meet the Merchant' Fortis conference on 29 and 30 April, 2014.

The prize draw, held by Roman and JT, was open to all Fortis members, offering them the chance to win a 50" television. To be in with the chance of winning the prize, the merchants had to hand in their unique reference number at the Roman and JT stand.

Roman displayed products from its new Lumin8 range of 8mm thick glass Shower Enclosures and Bath Screens, while JT demonstrated its tray portfolio.

Prize winner Burge and Gunson, London's largest independent bathroom specialist, along with over 30 other merchants, attended the 'Meet the Merchant' conference, which was held at the Hinckley Hotel in Leicester.

Burge and Gunson's general manager, Colin Towers, represented Burge and Gunson at the conference and proudly received the prize.

Mike Spink, group sales director of Roman, said: "The 'Meet the Merchant' Fortis conference is a great way to get all Fortis members together and catch up to discuss future opportunities and partnerships – a very enjoyable two days."
