NHS Exhibit Hall & Featured Areas

Explore the National Hardware Show’s re-imaged floor plan featuring new and improved areas created to provide enhanced product discovery and interactive experiences.

NHS debuted the launch of HABITAT in 2021, and it quickly became a must-see destination at the Show. We like to think of HABITAT as a showcase for the new ideas and technologies that are evolving how we will live at home. HABITAT at NHS can be experienced in 3 featured destinations: HABITAT Curated, HABITAT NEW, and HABITAT NEXT.

The most exciting new products from new-to-market brands and industry veterans alike come to life in HABITAT NEW, a discovery zone for the latest in Hardware and Home Improvement launches.

Powered by the United Inventors Association
