Apr 21, 2016

(NORWALK, Connecticut, April 21, 2016) — When you attend the National Hardware Show®, Wednesday, May 4 - Friday, May 6, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with representatives from some of the biggest, most well-known brands in the industry.

There will be more than 2,800 exhibitors at the Show this year—with more than 700 of them being new to the National Hardware Show—in 15 product categories. (Product categories include Building Products, Electrical, Farm & Ranch, Hardware & Tools, Housewares, International Sourcing, Inventors Spotlight, Lawn, Garden and Outdoor Living, Made in USA, Tailgate, Backyard & BBQ, Paint & Accessories, Pet Products, Plumbing and Storage & Organization.)

Some of the big brands at the Show include Big Green Egg, Channellock, Westinghouse, Hyde Tools, Red Devil Inc., Louisville Ladder and The Hillman Group, among others. (For a full list of exhibitors, click here.) The global appeal of the Show also means opportunities for brands and international customers to meet, network and form partnerships.

“The National Hardware Show is a great venue to reconnect with our largest class of trade–the hardware community,” says Jerry Stone, business development manager with Big Green Egg. “The large group of independent dealers who attend this show perfectly fit our business model, making this a great opportunity to introduce new products, attract new dealers, spend time with our existing customers and have some fun along the way.”
