The show that’s got decorating covered


On November 27 and 28, the decorating trade will convene at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena for the 2018 National Painting and Decorating Show.

For professional decorators, contractors, merchants and stockists, this is the annual trade event that has the entire decorating sector covered. Paint and wallpaper, preparation tools and applicators, colour trends and time-saving techniques – show visitors will see the latest in product innovation as well as plenty of trusted best sellers.

From Dulux, PlastiKote, tesa and Wagner to Brewers, Crown, 3M, Graco and Benjamin Moore, the 2018 show will again feature hundreds of products, brands and suppliers revealing the latest trends and textures making news across the decorating market.

Every year this show buzzes with product launches, hands-on demos, theatre sessions, show-only deals, free samples, how-to information, competitions, raffles, prize draws, sporting challenges and celebrity guests.

Several special features also help visitors make the most of their time at the show. Making its debut at the 2018 event is SprayZone, designed to take the mystery out of spraying. Visitors will have a hands-on opportunity to hone their paint spraying skills, instructed by experts in the proper and safe use of several different types of equipment.

In the two MasterClass theatres, sponsored by Packexe, again this year industry experts will present practical information and demonstrations, and reveal tricks and techniques of the trade every 30 minutes throughout the two-day show.

The popular Lucky Dip will be back again, making everyone a winner of useful gifts, product samples and promotional items.

The CoffeeZone, sponsored by Crown Decorating Centres, will provide visitors with a welcome break as they shop the show. And each day the first 1000 pre-registered visitors to arrive at the event will receive a complimentary product-packed DecoBag.

The show venue, complete with on-site hotel, parking, restaurants and bars, is easily accessible by road, rail and air. It’s just a two-hour drive from 75% of the country, Birmingham Airport is a short drive away, and an on-site train station provides an hourly service between Coventry City station and Ricoh Arena.

The National Painting and Decorating Show provides visitors with a valuable networking opportunity to meet exhibitors face-to-face, find out who’s doing what in the decorating industry, and exchange ideas and solutions with like-minded decorating professionals.
