The esteemed award ceremony – which is taking place at the Plaisterers' Hall, London, on Thursday, July 5 – is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Jon Konsbruck, National Sales Manager Contractors/Specification at Crown Paints, said: “We feel really privileged to be the main sponsor of this year’s Premier Trophy Awards, especially as it’s a milestone anniversary. 

“Year on year, the event is one that’s always in everybody’s diaries in the painting and decorating industry and it’s important for Crown Paints to support it.

“We’re looking forward to coming together and celebrating the work and achievements of people within the trade.”
