P&D Show Feedback

Many, many thanks from the National Painting and Decorating Show team, to all our visitors and exhibitors, who together made this the biggest and best show ever.

We’ve been getting some fantastic feedback from our exhibitors, some of which we would like to share with you here:


“Dunlop stepped into the professional decorating industry for the first time at this year’s National Painting and Decorating Show. We felt it provided the perfect platform to launch our Pro Décor range – and we weren’t wrong! We were overwhelmed by the reception Pro Décor and our Hydrolo technology welcomed. It’s safe to say we’ll be attending this well organised and respected event next year to promote Pro Décor and engage with our customers.”

Debi Boulton, Brand Manager at Dunlop

Great show

“Great show, there was a great buzz around our stand. Looking forward to next year!!“

Dulux Decorator Centres


“This year’s show was very successful for us and our stand seemed busier than ever. It provided a fantastic – and unique – platform for launching key new products to the professionals we want to use them and the retailers we’re targeting to stock them. It generated a massive amount of excitement and interest. Our business has exhibited at the show since the show stated 19 years ago and it is always the first thing we factor into our annual Marketing plan.”

Paul Waller, TOR Coatings

No other show like it

“The P&D Show brings many of the industry’s biggest names in one place – we have exhibited every year since 2007, returning each year as the show gives us the opportunity to meet new and existing customers from all over the country. It allows us to showcase our services to the core customers of our business, trade professionals, in a unique environment – there is no other industry trade show of its kind in the UK!”

Stan Adams, Commercial Director at Brewers

Very Successful

“This year’s show once again proved very successful. The show was very busy with a mixture of trade and end user visitors; we also saw a large number of educational establishments. “Mike Pow, UK Sales and Marketing Manager – Distribution Tesa UK

Great Shop Window

“A really well attended show this year! The venue is perfect for this event and the hall was full for both days. The show is a great shop window for us and we have already booked our stand for next year!”

Rob Coleman, Wooster Brush Europe

We shall be back in 2014!

“Our first experience of exhibiting at the P&D Show we were not disappointed. The show was busy, relevant to the Grime Boss brand, and certainly provided enthusiastic, engaged and knowledgeable traders and end users. We shall be back in 2014!”
