Innovation Direct™ excited to be a part of 2008 National Hardware Show with Lawn and Garden World…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our first update regarding the 2008 National Hardware Show with Lawn and Garden World, which Innovation Direct™ is exhibiting in. With the Hardware Expo and Construction Products Exhibit just having wrapped up in Puerto Rico last week, there has barely been time to focus on this terrific event, which will take place today-Thursday at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. This marks the 63rd annual edition of the event, and Innovation Direct™ has found it to be one of the true gems of our trade show itinerary each year.
As per the show’s official website, over 3,000 exhibitors representing more than 150 product categories are expected, and approximately 30,000 attendees are primed to walk the aisles of the Las Vegas Convention Center and interact with them. In 2007, the show’s official website cites 18% of the attendees of last year’s proceedings as being of international origin, lending a true global component to the event.
Adding to the appeal of this show is the fact that two other successful events in their own right are co-located with it, Lawn and Garden World and the Homewares Show. Essentially three multi-billion dollar industries are represented, making this event an incredibly fertile ground for the garnering of potentially valuable leads for the inventions represented by Innovation Direct™.
Our trade show contingent informs us that Day 1 has already gotten off to a strong start, with traffic in the aisles being quite steady. We will have an update for you later in the day, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Stay tuned!
