“We couldn’t be more excited to return to Las Vegas for our 75th edition Show,” said Beth Casson, Event Leader, National Hardware Show. “While the world has changed significantly since our last visit to the Convention Center, NHS has adapted to remain the primary hub for hardware and home improvement communities to stay connected – be it virtually or in-person.”

The National Hardware Show is where exhibitors and suppliers can get their products in front of the most diverse range of buyers in the industry to generate sales leads, build relationships and gain global exposure. Meanwhile, media can discover the newest, most diverse range of products and learn about trends shaping the future of the hardware and home improvement market.

New This Year

In addition to returning to Las Vegas for the in-person Show with updated health and safety guidelines, NHS added a year-round digital component this year – NHS Connects – to deliver thought leadership, global insights and unrivaled sourcing and networking opportunities for its communities. The online platform allows members to source the newest products and vendors, connect with new and current customers and stay up-to-date with the latest industry education and content.

Additionally, HABITAT, a new platform by NHS will live both online and on-site at the event, showcasing the hardware and home improvement industries’ biggest ideas and innovations. HABITAT, where merchandise and mission meet, is a lens on the future and how our industry can rise to meet the changes in our world.

Finally, NHS launched PUNCHLIST, a bi-weekly editorial newsletter to highlight trends, cultural shifts and ingenuities from prominent companies and leaders. To be added to the PUNCHLIST distribution list, please register here.
