National Painting and Decorating Show 2018 Review
tesa, a leading global adhesive tape manufacturer, has been attending the P&D Show show for 11 years, and this year, continued to demonstrate commitment to P&D professionals.
tesa took this year’s event as a chance to highlight the capabilities of its masking and adhesive tape range, including a sneak preview of the new Easy Cover Precision® launching in January 2019. The latest member of the Easy Cover range features new sizes of 2.1m and 2.6m drop, which was very well received by professionals at the show who intend to implement spraying in future work.
The tesa stand showcased a number of creative and eye-catching elements, including three giant sized rolls of tape constructed from MDF and built-in LED lighting. Visitors to the tesa stand over the course of the two-day exhibition had the opportunity to watch Chris Ashmore, Director of Creative Murals and Portraits, produce a mural using tesa masking tape on a featured display wall.
Chris has recently painted a new feature wall at tesa’s UK headquarters that celebrates the company’s heritage and development and was keen to demonstrate the versatility of tesa’s Professional masking tape.
Donna Smith, Trade Marketing Manager, is confident those who visited the stand were suitably impressed, saying:
“As always, we have been delighted with the response to our attendance at the National Painting and Decorating Show. The event remains a fantastic chance for us to update loyal fans of tesa masking tape, as well as speak to people who are not currently aware of our full range of capabilities. Previewing Easy Cover Precision® has provided us with pre-launch feedback from the market which is highly beneficial. We would also like to thank Chris Ashmore for taking the time to create some fantastic murals for the benefit of our stand’s visitors.”
