The three-day National Hardware Show kicks off Tuesday, promising a blend of new product exhibits.
At the National Hardware Show, independent retailers will be able to see products beyond the spectrum of what typical wholesalers offer, according to the show organizers.
Also on tap will be new niche opportunities, networking with other independent retailers from across the industry and educational opportunities geared toward helping them drive their businesses.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer meetings, receptions and other opportunities for home improvement retailers, manufacturers and buyers to get together and talk about what’s happening in the industry,” said Sonya Ruff Jarvis, VP attendee programs at the National Hardware Show. “With so many exhibitors, attendees and organizations under one roof, the National Hardware Show is a great time for everyone to get together.”
There will be nearly 700 new exhibitors across multiple categories. Some of the new exhibitors include Kohler Co., Woodcraft LLC, Family Handyman, Millennium Lock and Frontline Products, among others.
The events include the 29th Golden Hammer Awards and the Home Channel Hall of Fame induction of Ray Griffith, sponsored by Safety Works.
