At this year’s National Painting and Decorating Show almost 100 exhibitors will be displaying a vast array of products and offering great show-only deals.
The major paint manufacturers use the event to launch new coatings on to the market, stockists tempt visitors with some fantastic discounts, suppliers pack their stands with a massive selection of tools, ancillaries and workday essentials – and there’s always a sprinkling of never-before-seen items from entrepreneurs at home and abroad.
One of the best things about the show is that it’s not just a marketplace: there are live demonstrations of finishing techniques and applications going on continuously, and there’s always a fun element, too – from competitions, raffles and prize draws through to sporting challenges and personal appearances by celebs.
The National Painting and Decorating Show 2014 , Jaguar Hall, Ricoh Arena, Coventry. 18th and 19th November , 9.30-4pm both days.
