Over the last few weeks, the National Hardware Show has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 virus and its impact on members of the global hardware and home improvement community, including the business disruptions caused by cancelled or postponed events. The organization issued a statement yesterday confirming the event will take place as scheduled at this time.
“We understand the concerns of our customers and do not take them lightly. The National Hardware Show firmly believes in the importance of an industry gathering place and is committed to hosting the Show as planned May 5-7, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Please know that the health and safety of exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff is, and will always be, our number one priority. We are collaborating closely with the Las Vegas Convention Center and local public health authorities and following local, state and federal public health guidelines, including those issued by the CDC. If their advice and guidelines are updated, we will immediately let you know.”
The North American Retail Hardware Association hosts the NRHA All-Industry Conference in conjunction with the National Hardware Show.
“We are communicating regularly with the National Hardware Show regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on industry events,” says NRHA CEO Bob Cutter. “We have confidence in the leadership of the organization to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved, and we will continue to update our members as we receive new information.”
