2016 Painting and Decorating Show Covers Everything
Professional decorators and stockists can see the latest innovations and proven best sellers at this year’s National Painting and Decorating Show.
Now in its 22nd year, the event will take place on November 29th and 30th in the Ericsson Hall at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena. Promising to be the biggest and best yet, the show will again be buzzing with plenty of new product launches, live demonstrations and a full timetable of free Masterclasses in two ‘open area’ theatres.
Thousands of free samples will be distributed by exhibitors, as well as some great gifts and promotional items in the Lucky Dip, where every dip into the bucket is a winner.
Covering every category in the fast changing decorating sector, this busy two-day event will feature the products, materials, tools, tips, techniques, textures, colour trends and decorative effects required by contractors and interior designers.
Each year the show’s list of exhibitors reads like a who’s who of the decorating industry, and the 2016 event is no exception. The sector’s leading manufacturers, suppliers and brands will be on hand – from Crown, Dulux, Henkel, Johnstone’s and Wagner Spraytech to Purdy, Hamilton Acorn, Packexe, Bradite and Olfa Tools, plus many, many more.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see at first hand the unveiling of new products and new packaging, and to discuss new merchandising materials and promotional programmes. For example, Tesa will be launching its new 16-week outdoor-use masking tape, TV personality Craig Phillips will be unveiling Wagner Spraytech’s new Vector range of airless spray guns, and Bradite will introduce its new water-based floor primer, recoatable in two and a half hours and designed for use on power floated and non-porous floor surfaces.
The National Painting and Decorating Show is also a timely opportunity for material stockists, agents and distributors to fine-tune their decorating departments for the year ahead, to meet with existing suppliers and customers and make new connections.
The central location of the Ricoh Arena makes the show easily accessible from all parts of the country, by road and by rail. Plus, the venue now has its own dedicated train station, providing an hourly rail link service between Coventry City station and the Arena.
