Trade Decorator Live brings the Painting & Decorating Industry together for debut exhibition


The UK’s two-day pop-up Painting & Decorating show is coming to Old Trafford Football Stadium, Manchester on the 23rd & 24th June…


Trade Decorator live sponsored by Repair Care plans to bring together industry professionals to see the latest products, gain access to ‘show offers’ on trade essentials and network with colleagues.


Trade Decorator Live will boast a dedicated ‘trade zone’ sponsored by CT1, where painters and decorators will be able pick-up products and tools “for less”, and a ‘masterclass area’, which will feature product demonstrations carried out by social media influencers.


If you’re looking to invest in spraying, get hands on in the Spray Zone Sponsored by Abode Decorating Training Academy where you’ll be able to try out the latest machines from Graco, Wagner and QTech.


Running alongside the show are a series of free seminars covering a wide range of subjects from estimating and financial management, how to win more business, social media for decorators and vehicle security.


A training zone, sponsored by Trimaco will offer free courses to help painters and decorators upskill. Courses will cover timber repairs, fine finishing using abrasives and dustless sanding, Venetian Plaster application and colour workshops.


In true Trade Decorator style we’ll have loads of freebies, competitions and giveaways and the first 100 visitors each day can pick up a goodie bag sponsored by Timbabuild and filled with generous goodies from our exhibitors.

 “We know that time is important for professional painters and decorators. Many are self-employed, and work all hours of the day, so we have put on an event that will boost their business and is also a good day out,” explained Paula McIntosh, managing director, Trade Decorator.


“We are going all out to ensure this is an event you will feel was worth attending and that it is firmly planned in your calendar… for years to come,” she added.

Pre-register for tickets as several perks are available for VIP ticket holders including a free hot buffet lunch and drinks in the bar after the event on Thursday evening at our Evening drinks reception sponsored by Dulux Academy.
