U.S.: National Hardware Show postponed to September

The National Hardware Show has been postponed and will now take place on 1-3 September 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. Originally the event, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2020, was scheduled for 5-7 May. “We know how important the National Hardware Show is to our customers’ business and it is our top priority to provide a place where the hardware and home improvement industry has the ability to come together and allow business to continue,” said Randy Field, group vice-president, Reed Exhibitions. “Therefore, we will be holding the National Hardware Show September 1-3, 2020. We believe this is the right decision for our customers and the industry in general, which is a vital part of the supply chain for manufacturing and distribution of products.” The fair organisers are “working with our partners to find solutions to logistical and operational issues that may arise. We are here to help, but ask for their patience as we ensure all of our customers are taken care of,” said Field.

U.S.: Another successful National Hardware Show

Las Vegas played host to the hardware and home improvement industry last week, as retailers and buyers from across North America attended the National Hardware Show. The show was held in conjunction with the All-Industry Conference, held by the North American Hardware Association. The event got underway with a presentation by John Hartmann, CEO of The True Value Company. On the show floor, the Canadian presence was not as evident as in years past. However, Canadian companies were exhibiting and representatives from the likes of Lowe’s Canada, The Home Depot Canada and Canadian Tire were all in attendance.
