The Home Depot will be receptive to new ideas, new products and new inventions during the upcoming National Hardware Show at the Inventor’s Spotlight pavilion.

The world’s largest home improvement retailer will host a product pitch panel at this year’s event, and there are some heavy hitters in the lineup. Scheduled to serve on the pitch panel are:

  • Ted Decker, executive VP of merchandising;
  • Jim Hovis, senior VP of global brand and product development;
  • Jeanine Huebner, senior VP of hardlines; and
  • Dave Fedewa, VP of product and development.

The above Home Depot merchants will take pitches from a variety of pre-registered inventors. The United Inventors Association describes the panel as a “unique opportunity to get before the biggest home improvement retailer in the industry.”

The Home Depot Product Pitch event is slated for May 9. For more information, visit The 2018 National Hardware Show runs from May 8 to May 10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
