The European Federation FEST provides merchants of sanitary and heating articles with the support and advice needed to run their businesses in a competitive environment.

FEST is the European trade body to which national trade associations join to represent the interests of the sanitary and central heating articles distribution across Europe. FEST wants to work with the national member-associations, the European Commission, the national and european manufacturers associations and the national and european Installers associations. The role of FEST is important, because each sector, such as the technical products distribution industry, needs a vehicle to represent its views, sometimes to counter the views of others, and to be a focal point for communication.

We are proudly sponsored by:


The 57th FEST Congress, hosted by Vice-President Johan Stevens of Sanitop, will take place between 22nd-24th September 2022 in Lisbon. More information will be added soon.




FEST EMDG 2.0 – JUNE 2021







This month FEST hosted a successful Webinar entitled “Wholesalers in the post-Covid World’, attended by colleagues from across Europe. The event was opened by a leading industry consultant based in the UK who introduced Stefan Van Rompaey, an expert in retail trends. Stefan’s presentation touched on recent changes in consumers’ buying habits that have gained accelerated momentum as a direct result of the global pandemic. His views were then widely discussed by a panel of key industry figures, who spoke specifically about the impact on wholesalers in the sector.
