National Painting and Decorating Show heading for sell-out

Published:  16 March, 2010

COVENTRY: There is still eight months to go and the organisers of this year’s National Painting and Decorating Show have announced that 80% of the stand space has already been sold.

The event last year attracted a record number of visitors, and all of the industry’s leading suppliers have signed up again. These include Akzo Nobel ICI Paints, Crown Paints and PPG. The principal stockists of decorating materials – Crown Decorating Centres, Dulux Decorator Centres, Johnstone Leyland Decorating Centres, and Brewers – are also exhibiting in their own right.

The exhibition takes place on 9th and 10th November at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Call 020 8645 2433 for more information and register for free tickets on the website
