Registration is now open for the seventh annual Concrete Decor Show taking place in San Diego, Sept. 25 through 29 at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center.

The show will feature decorative concrete workshops and seminars led by concrete industry professionals. In addition to the educational offerings, a trade show with displays and demonstrations will be held.

As part of the annual event, a nonprofit organization is selected to receive a makeover, complements of the show’s organizer, Concrete Decor magazine. This year’s recipient is the Bannister Family House, a facility that provides a home-like environment for people with family members in long-term or critical care at the UC San Diego Health medical center. Improvements will include projects from a built-in barbecue to carved concrete rock features to a decorative concrete patio complete with a stained tree of life-like design and an inlaid LithoMosaic. San Diego-based architect, Amanda Conahan and T.B. Penick & Sons, created the conceptual design for the Bannister Family House.

In addition to concrete-centric classes and displays, the Paint Decor Annex will feature exhibits, demonstrations and workshops devoted to decorative painting and faux finishing techniques that can be used on floors, furniture, walls or ceilings. Coatings professionals and concrete artisans can take advantage of classes sponsored by the International Decorative Artisans League to improve their skills and discover new products.
