Industry Relevance

The National Hardware Show (NHS) spans a history of eight decades and has been a fundamental force in the shaping of the hardware market in the United States of America. The trade show offers exhibitors the opportunity to present their latest releases to the biggest buyers in America, and set trends for the upcoming year. NHS takes place at the LV Exhibition Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada early each year. Exhibitors are able to reconnect with current partners and network with new buyers to set up for the rest of the year. 

NHS presents buyers with the full value chain of related products under one roof. In effect, it’s the single biggest one-stop sourcing platform in the States. The exhibition floor is divided into nine groups of products, services and equipment: BBQ & Grill, Building, Electric, Global Source, Hardware & Tools, Homeware, Outdoor & Garden, Paint and Plumbing.

The 2023 edition marked the beginning of a new era for NHS as the hardware trade show partnered with other iconic shows: the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). This powerful trip of events took the Design & Construction Week at the Las Vegas Convention Center by storm, generating an incredible amount of publicity and sales for all brands involved. This record-breaking edition further cemented NHS’ reputation as an unmissable show!

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

You’ll be excited to hear that NHS continues to expand with a 38% increase in visitors compared to 2019. In fact, there was an incredible number of first timers at the trade show (24%), resulting in more opportunities to convert potential buyers. NHS remains a thoroughly American show with only 16% of visitors travelling from abroad. 

Professionally, exhibitors meet with wholesalers, distributors, co-ops, independent retailers, R&D, product development, manufacturers, online & e-commerce stores, builders, contractors as well as remodelers. Professionals that travel from outside the US are coming mainly from Canada, China, Mexico, India, Australia, England and Taiwan. On the domestic front, you can look forward to pitching to representatives from giants such as ACE, Ferguson, Home Hardware, Ring's End, Do it Best Corp, UDG, Mid-States, TrueValue, Lowe's, The Home Depot, Tractor Supply, Costco Wholesale and Grainger.

Additional Value of Attending 

There’s quite a lot happening at the LV Exhibition Centre. You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to education programming. One example is the Inventors Summit hosted by the United Inventors Association. The Summit provides visitors with several educational seminars and Product Pitch Panels that are run like “Shark Tank”. Business leaders will step in to offer guidance to inventors, who are working towards introducing market-ready products to consumers. 

The 2023 edition saw the introduction of brand new areas that helps guide buyers to the newest in products and inventions on the show floor. These are the HABITAT NEW and HABITAT NEXT areas, which in addition to an on-site showcase come with a digital product database that helps visitors learn more and save the products they like easily. 

HABITAT is created to facilitate connections between retailers and the latest trends, products, and merchandising solutions dropping on the market right now. Exhibitors are given an opportunity to showcase their products in the prominently displayed feature area. HABITAT NEW is a discovery zone for hardware and home improvement launches. It showcased the most thrilling new products from both new-to-market brands and experienced industry veterans. HABITAT NEXT is the brainchild of the United Inventors Association and highlighted the next generation of innovations set to rethink everyday living and adapt to changes in our world.

Of course, it’s not all work. You have plenty of opportunities to unwind and meet your peers in a much more relaxed fashion. A great way to do this is during the HABITAT Happy Hour scheduled to take place at the end of each show day at the Backyard Beer Garden. Great beer, comfortable seats and excellent music is what you can expect. 

You can’t have beer without food to go with it. The NHS Celebrity-Chef Cook-Off is a beloved feature that brings in the best chefs to demonstrate why they’re great at what they do. In 2023, it was Mitche Graf from BBQ Nation, who in his role as the host, chose the ingredients chefs had to use in order to create a unique dish.
