(NORWALK, Connecticut, May 29, 2018)—Earlier this month, thousands of hardware and home improvement professionals from throughout the industry gathered at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 73rd edition of the National Hardware Show. Attendees and exhibitors alike had the chance to network, learn about new products and see the latest and greatest in industry trends.
“The 2018 National Hardware Show was a successful one,” says Rich Russo, vice president of the National Hardware Show. “With three busy days full of excitement and enthusiasm, we were thrilled to see such a great turnout and hope everyone left feeling inspired by the ideas, best practices, insights and new connections made at the Show. It was inspiring for us to see so many industry professionals from across the country and all over the world gather together here at NHS.”
As always, a key focus for all who attended were new products—not only could retailers find the latest and greatest at the Show, but there were several featured areas where their latest innovations and developments were on display.
“We’re constantly looking for products for our electrical department,” says Diana Newton, vice president of Bay Hardware in Seal Beach, California. “There are always improvements to be made there.”
The educational seminars at the North American Retail Hardware Association’s (NRHA) All-Industry Conference, held in the NRHA Village in the Central Lobby, were also a popular area for many attendees.
“This event has it all: products, networking, learning more about managing and running a business,” says Sherri Amos, director of dealer support at Home Hardware. “It’s one you can’t miss.”
