Grow Your Business at the 2024 National Hardware Show

Are you ready to revolutionize your business? Registration is now open for the 2024 National Hardware Show (NHS), taking place March 26-28 in Las Vegas. Representatives of the home improvement industry from all over the world —including independent retailers, online retailers, distributors and wholesalers—attend NHS to discover the latest products, innovations and trends shaping the future of the home improvement and DIY industry and network with fellow attendees.

“Beyond access to thousands of new products and trends, the 2024 National Hardware Show has so much value to offer attendees,” says Beth Casson, NHS event vice president. “Our goal this year was to elevate the Show experience so attendees can make the most of their time in Las Vegas and go home with new insights and connections to help grow their businesses.”

What’s new in 2024? A new and improved exhibit hall layout will make it easier than ever to navigate the Show and explore exhibitor booths. New product categories include hobby, gift and specialty, sport and outdoor recreation, paint and decor and more.

Retailers will also have the opportunity to gain insights and make connections at the new Independent Retail Center.

“We are excited to offer sessions on succession planning, ensuring a prosperous future for your retail venture,” Casson says.

The Independent Retail Center will provide a space for retailers to network with their peers and connect with industry professionals, with topic-focused roundtables led by the North American Hardware and Paint Association (NHPA).

“The Independent Retail Center offers a unique opportunity for members of the independent home improvement industry to come together to discuss important topics and engage in idea sharing and networking,” says Dan Tratensek, NHPA chief operating officer. “In addition to facilitating conversations between attendees, we’re pleased to offer roundtable discussions centered around driving sales, leadership and succession planning.”
