Organizers of the 73rd National Hardware Show, coming to Las Vegas May 8-10 (Tuesday to Thursday), expect more than 2,500 hands-on exhibits across more than 15 product categories.

New experiential product displays and special events are expected to energize the event and live up to its new slogan: “The Tool that Powers Your Business.” Attendee badge registration grants access to the NRHA All-Industry Conference, personalized exhibitor and product recommendations, the NHS Mobile App and other planning features to offer attendees a seamless attending experience.

“This year’s Show, our 73rd edition, begins a new era for the National Hardware Show” Rich Russo, vice president of NHS says. “For years, we have served the industry as a way for hardware & home improvement professionals to connect face-to-face annually. While that won’t change, in addition to an all-new logo and look, we’re enhancing the Show experience with new interactive exhibits, new ways to showcase trends, enhanced NRHA All-Industry Conference, new participation from retail leaders and so much more. This is truly a year not to be missed.”

Three new Show features offer interactive ways to experience trends:

  • Smart Home Virtual Reality experience will give retailers an immersive look at the home of the future and what they can do to become go-to destinations for customers in this category. Take a virtual tour of the products, accessories and whole-home integrations customers will be asking for in the years ahead.
  • Ultimate Backyard outside in Tailgate, Backyard & BBQ presents the latest and greatest in grilling, outdoor living and more. Take a moment to relax and unwind and see what’s cooking in this popular category to help make your customers’ backyards their favorite destination in town.
  • Operation Tiny Home will offer attendees an exclusive look at the tiny home building process and the products specially made for these homes. Operation Tiny Home will be hosting a 3-day Tiny Home Building Workshop with the host of Tiny Home Nation, Zach Giffin, where veterans will become proficient with tiny home construction practices and general carpentry skills and you’ll watch the building process from start to finish.
