Networking Event & Gala Dinner

We are delighted to invite all PDA Members and Associate Partners to join us in Liverpool on Saturday 5 October for our annual networking and gala dinner event! 2024 is a big year for the PDA, as we are celebrating our 130 year anniversary.

The evening will commence with a Champagne reception followed by a sumptuous formal dinner. After dinner we will present the PDA Apprentice Paperhanger of the Year Awards and celebrate the work of the talented apprentices who make the finals. Then it’s time to enjoy the live entertainment and hit the dance floor.

The event will take place in the vibrant city of Liverpool at the Hilton Liverpool City Centre. The hotel is centrally located within a ten‑minute walk of Royal Albert Dock, The Beatles Story and Liverpool ONE.

The night provides a great opportunity for PDA Members and their guests to network, celebrate achievements and enjoy a five‑star evening.

We do hope you can attend and look forward to seeing you.

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for such a nice evening. Carl and I both really enjoyed it.
The music was great, the food was excellent and thank you for making sure it was gluten free. It was nice to meet you all in person too and we had a great time with our table as well.

Thank you so much for a brilliant conference. What a night!
It was amazing.
Thanks again,

We at Tighes would like to thank you for organising yet again another amazing event which as usual went with military precision.
We all very much enjoyed ourselves, even me being able to wear that same old suit!

Well done in organising, fab event. I’m sure anyone looking at the pictures will see what fun it was, and want to be there next year!
You are a great bunch of people to work with. ~ Yorkshire Events Photography

Thank you all for organising such a great event, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

I was invited to the PDA gala on Saturday evening, it was a pleasure to be part of it and be awarded the CEO recognition and achievement award. Being part of this evening was a special experience as it was a privilege to meet people higher up the ladder in my chosen trade and has motivated me even more to carry on with painting and decorating. Special thanks to Yvonne and Neil for inviting me and to all of the people who made this amazing evening happen. Holly 😊

Congratulations on organising such an amazing event! We had a wonderful evening mingling with fellow decorators and were truly impressed by the emerging talents of tomorrow.😊

Following last year’s success, we’re planning to hold our next National Networking event on Saturday 5 October 2024 at Hilton Liverpool City Centre.
