After a Covid-19 enforced break, we were thrilled to return to Coventry for the Painting and Decorating Show 2021. Held over two days at the CBS Arena (previously Ricoh), we joined over 100 manufacturers, showing thousands of products.
Painting and Decorating Show Essentials
The Big Wipes stand at the National Painting & Decorating Show 2021 was, as per usual, a ‘must see’. We were visited by professional painters and decorators – individuals and businesses, stockists and suppliers. Everyone was looking for the best product demonstrations and incredible deals. Clearly they found all of this on the Big Wipes stand! It was fantastic to once more be able to meet our customers face to face.
The 2021 edition of the Painting & Decorating show succeeded in bringing painters and decorators right up to date. There were plenty of activities to make the visit really worthwhile, including discounts and special offers across the widest range of products.
What did the Organisers think
Organiser Terry Dullaway believes that the event is a real partnership between exhibitors and visitors. He explains: “It’s the hard work of the exhibitors and the enthusiasm of the thousands of visitors that has always made the show so worthwhile. The fantastic buzz experienced over the two days this year really did reflect the confidence and high customer demand the trade is experiencing.
“Nearly 3,000 decorating professionals, designers, merchants and specifiers came together to make the welcome 2021 return of the Painting & Decorating Show a huge success. Informative and easily accessible, the popular Masterclass programme showcased demonstrations of new and existing products by experts, for experts.
“Following last year’s postponement due to COVID-19,t here was an even more exciting mix of new products, innovation, practical demonstrations, freebies and unrivalled special deals. Painters and Decorators sorely needed this show after the past months”
“It was also great to see trade professionals making the trip from all parts the UK. Above all, this truly underlines its appeal as the only truly national event”, Terry concluded.
