In Vegas: Get Your Hammer On

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The 2014 Golden Hammer Awards will strike for the 30th time May 6, when industry leaders gather poolside at the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

Sponsored by The Vendor Center and Midwest Fasteners, and presented in partnership with the National Hardware Show, the Golden Hammer event honors the best of the best in home improvement.

For the first time, the Golden Hammers will serve as the open-to-all welcome reception for the entire National Hardware Show.

The agenda is chock full of networking, and also includes the induction of Orgill CEO Ron Beal into the Home Channel Hall of Fame; the Retailer of the Year presentation to Sulphur, La.-based Stine Home & Yard; and the annual Tools of the Trade Award presentation to Hipp Modern Builders Supply of Mountain View, Ark.

Gates open at 4:30, and there’s no charge.

The Golden Hammer has evolved since its founding in 1985. That’s the year that St. Paul, Minn.-based Knox Lumber won the first “Golden Hammer Trophy” for “most outstanding commercial.” (It included the tagline: “All the right stuff at the right prices.”)

In 2004, charter members of the Home Channel Hall of Fame were inducted: Joe Orgill, Joe Hardy, Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus.
