Were you one of the many thousands of decorating professionals who visited the P&D Show this year? Not the real one of course – that was postponed because of the pandemic – but an online version staged by the organisers in conjunction with Painting and Decorating News.
The Online P&D Show ran for six weeks until the end of October and attracted over 8,000 visitors who racked up a whopping 73,000 page views.
Commented PDN editor, Paul Murray: “This was the first industry event of its kind and so we had no idea how it would go. But as it turned out it was a triumph. Exhibitors really entered into the spirit of the thing, posting practical how-to videos, launching some amazing new products and offering great competition prizes.
“You can’t completely replicate the buzz and excitement of a live show but in the absence of the national event at Ricoh Arena we were able to keep everyone up-to-date with all the latest industry news and product innovations”.
The next National Painting and Decorating Show takes place on 23rd & 24th November 2021 at Ricoh Arena, Coventry. See you there!
