HARDWARE STORES

Around the horn in Las Vegas

The National Hardware Show curated three days of discovery.

Las Vegas The National Hardware Show brought the industry to Las Vegas for three days of networking, learning and, of course, products.

“This year’s show is all about new,” said Rich Russo, VP of the National Hardware Show, in his opening day remarks. “From our logo and branding to 500-plus new exhibitors, there are new experiences everywhere you turn and new products to bring back to your stores.”

All told, some 2,800 exhibitors were on hand to welcome the hardware industry to the show. One of those attendees was Martin Prus, owner of Abbotsford Paint & Decorating. “I’ve been coming to the show for 12 years,” he said. “We’re always looking for new products and seeing how we can expand on what we have.”

One post can’t hold the event’s vastness, but above are some of the sights seen in Las Vegas.
