Do you have a new invention? Be a part of one of the most exciting areas at the National Hardware Show, the Inventors Spotlight! This dedicated area features products not yet on the market to give buyers an inside look at what may be the next big product or service to revolutionize the industry. This section is jam packed with brand new inventions and offers a variety of opportunities to showcase your prototype or product to retailers, distributors and wholesalers who are always looking for the latest and greatest products!

What Inventors have to say…

 I would highly encourage an inventor to make one of the most important decisions they could possibly make when introducing a new product: exhibit at the National Hardware Show. This Show cannot be compared to any other single event that an inventor could participate in that would give them greater exposure to the largest retail buyers in the nation. These buyers are on the hunt for new products…they are pre-disposed to wanting to learn about your new product.

Our product is now in numerous national retailers including, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Ace, Meijer, Farm and Fleet, Amazon and many, many more with the momentum still growing. Virtually every major retailer that carries our product can be traced to the National Hardware Show.

Since introducing a prototype of my new product at the Show in May of 2012, we have sold a million pieces of our Mini. We have participated in the Show ever since. If your product is in the hardware channel and you need it to get noticed, the very best thing that you can do is exhibit at the National Hardware Show.

Here is the formula that I tell everyone that asks me what my opinion of the National Hardware Show is: If you have a new product, the NHS = Success!
