It’s been a long wait but we’re so excited to finally deliver our first ever Trade Decorator LIVE Exhibition – The UK’s two-day pop-up Painting & Decorating show is coming to Old Trafford Football Stadium, Manchester on the 23rd & 24th June… 

Here is a Q & A with Paula McIntosh Managing Director of the Trade Decorator Brand – to find out why Trade Decorator LIVE is a must- attend event for professional painters and decorators across the UK.

Q Why did you decide to launch Trade Decorator LIVE?

Paula: In 2017 we launched the UK’s First interactive news and review based website for professional decorators. We have developed a strong following of professional Painters & Decorators in the UK across all our social media platforms and have successfully launched our own Trade Decorator forum on Facebook. The ethos behind Trade decorator is about raising the standards in the painting & decorating industry and celebrating the skills in the industry. The success of Trade Decorator is down to the strong support we have received from both Manufacturers and decorators alike who dominate our social media platforms and community. With Trade Decorator LIVE we want to bring the “social media effect” to a live environment to demonstrate and celebrate all that is good in this industry.

Q. Why should decorators take time off the tools to visit?

Paula: 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.

Attending Trade shows are also legitimate business expenses and costs of travel, accommodation and meals are all expenses you can offset against your business.


2022 sees the launch of the Trade Decorator LIVE exhibition and we are going all out to ensure this is an event you will feel was worth attending and ensure it is firmly planned in your calendars as an event not to be missed for years to come.

Q. What can visitors expect to see and do at Trade Decorator LIVE?

Paula: The exhibition will feature many of the UK’s leading manufacturers in our “Trade Zone” the place where visitors will be able to do business and find out about new products, test out all the latest products, take part in competitions, get access to show only offers on trade essentials and load up your vans for less!

Visit our decorator demonstrations in our Masterclass area with many faces you will recognise from social media, showing how they get the best results with the industry’s biggest brands.

In addition to this, are their elements of your business where you feel you would benefit from professional advice? Our seminars will be led by experts in Estimating & Financial management, Social media for business, Best practice for websites, how to reduce the risk of vehicle theft and more…

As part of our VIP packages, we will be offering a number of FREE training opportunities in our Training Zone sponsored by Trimaco for upskilling which include, Timber repairs, fine finishing using abrasives and dustless sanding, Venetian Plaster application and a colour workshop.

Come and meet the Trade Decorator Forum team and enjoy a great day out with their fellow decorators. It really is worth the trip!
