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.
