Innovation Direct™ Looking Forward to Annual National Hardware Show Stop…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, here with the details on what is annually the most multifaceted trade show on our itinerary, the National Hardware Show. The Las Vegas Convention Center is the one venue large enough to hold what now amounts to 15 different themed show segments under one roof! The 2014 edition of the event will unfold between May 6th and 8th and for the 12th consecutive year, Innovation Direct™ staff will be walking the show floor, attempting to capitalize on the opportunities sure to be present!
In addition to featuring the leading companies in the hardware and tools category, the proceedings will also offer its attendees the chance to network with manufacturers and marketers in the lawn and garden, housewares, paint and related accessories, pet products, storage and organization, outdoor, tailgate, and recreation,building products, and plumbing and electrical industries, and energy efficient products, among others! Special International Sourcing and Inventor’s Spotlight sections of the show will also be a part of the this year’s proceedings. According to the official show website, the 2014 edition of the National Hardware Show is expected to attract over 2500 vendors and 27,000 visitors while showcasing over 250,000 products. With the US home improvement and DIY (Do-It-Yourself) markets alone totaling about $343 billion dollars annually as per the show’s website, we expect this show to be the most powerful yet on this year’s schedule.
