HBSDealer put out the call for best new products, and the industry delivered with a record number of entries for the latest class of Golden Hammer Award winners.
The process marks an enhancement and continuation of a decades-old tradition of honoring the best-of-the-best of the home improvement industry — from the best home center television commercials back in the early 1980s to Golden Hammer Retailers of the Year in the early 20th century.

The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 1, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Resorts World Las Vegas, a brand new property just steps away from the new Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Everyone knows the Golden Hammer is an emblem of innovative products,” added HBSDealer’s Clark. “This year, we want to bring together the best of the best along with the golden hearts of the industry.”
