The National Hardware Show® Presents the Latest in Outdoor Living at the All-New Ultimate Backyard Area

Apr 26, 2018

(NORWALK, Connecticut, April 26, 2018)—The 2018 National Hardware Show® is helping you experience the latest in outdoor living innovation—instead of merely seeing it. From Tuesday, May 8 to Thursday, May 10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the National Hardware Show presents the latest products and technology shaping outdoor living and the home improvement industry.

An all-new Show feature, the Ultimate Backyard, located outdoors in the Tailgate, Backyard & BBQ area in the Silver Lot, is the perfect chance to enjoy sunny Las Vegas and test new outdoor living products in the environment they’re meant for—a fresh, fun backyard setting. You’ll feel right at home, surrounded by grills, hammocks and even a bit of grass to help you get into the backyard mindset. Proudly sponsored by Adams Manufacturing, the Ultimate Backyard will offer Show attendees a glimpse at the latest outdoor products, from coolers and grills to outdoor furniture, fireplaces and more.

“After a day, or days, in the convention halls, we wanted to showcase products in a new way and encourage attendees to get some fresh air by experiencing great, new outdoor living products up close, in a backyard setting—just like they’re meant to be used,” says Rich Russo, vice president of the National Hardware Show. “Take a moment to step outside the Show floor and test these new products for yourself.”
