See What Last Year's Exhibitors Had To Say

  • I have been with Intromark for sixteen years and been attending the Hardware Show since 2000. Every year I feel that the show has enabled my team to be able to meet with manufacturers and distribution companies who are looking for new products. Last year our booth was attended by numerous companies and people who actually wanted to do business. We believe that the 2016 National Hardware Show will give us the same results. We are looking forward to another fantastic experience.

  • Fiskars was excited to have the opportunity to exhibit at the National Hardware Show again. We appreciated the flexibility and hard work of Reed Exhibitions and look forward to continuing our successful partnership.

  • The continued success of the National Hardware Show can be attributed in part to the professionalism of the entire Reed Exhibitions team and their willingness to make the show a success for exhibitors like Adams Manufacturing. NHS continues to be our top performing show for good reason (we do about 25 per year)!

    That being said, thought you’d be interested in all the integrated promotion and media that we employed to create buzz and drive traffic—from the belly band and directory ads to pre-show eBlasts and on-site props. As I’ve been preaching for years, the investment in booth space cost is just the beginning!
