Who Will Be at the National Hardware Show®?
While the National Hardware Show®, which will be held May 5-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, is a great place to find the newest products to hit the market and take in a variety of educational seminars and awards programs, it’s also the place to interact face-to-face with the representatives behind some of the biggest brands and most
well-known products in the home improvement industry.
And plenty of big brands — both new and veteran — will be at the Show. With more than 2,500 exhibitors in 15 unique product categories, the National Hardware Show is the place to meet with representatives from some of those big brands, including 3M, Channellock, Hamilton Beach, Big Green Egg, Louisville Ladder and more. The National Hardware Show’s global appeal also means opportunities for brands and international customers to meet and perhaps form cross-global partnerships.
“We’ve exhibited at the National Hardware Show for decades,” says Mark Yoder, national sales manager with Channellock. “Attendees at the hardware show represent about 50 percent of our clientele, so it’s really the show for us and our hand tool business, as well as the rest of our hardware and home improvement offerings. We can interact with all of our major customers within a three-day span, making the show a great networking opportunity.”
Not only are the exhibitors looking forward to meeting with attendees, but they’re ready to show off some new product lines.
“Big Green Egg has exhibited at the National Hardware Show for a number of years, and we find it’s an excellent way to effectively reach the specialty hardware retail community,” says Jerry Stone, business development manager at Big Green Egg. “The show offers us the chance to support our current distributors and dealers and to introduce the EGG product line to potential new dealers and vendors. The Show is a great place to find new product trends and to enhance the Big Green Egg brand in the important hardware trade.”
“This year, in addition to new products and technologies, 3M will be debuting a new global brand platform that showcases how 3M science impacts the world around us,” says Jeff Lavers, vice president and general manager, 3M Construction and Home Improvement Division. “We are excited to demonstrate the science behind the 3M products people use in and around their homes and jobsites every day.”
Product categories at the show include Building Products, Farm & Ranch, Hardware & Tools, Homewares, International Sourcing, Inventors Spotlight, Lawn, Garden & Outdoor Living, Paint & Accessories, Pet Products, Plumbing & Electrical, Storage & Organization, Outdoors, Tailgate & Recreation, Emergency Preparedness & Disaster Recovery, Energy Efficient and Made in USA.
