The National Hardware Show announced today that the 75th anniversary event will now take place October 21-23, 2021. The show will remain in the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, but will move to the newly opened West Hall.
While this schedule changes the show’s daily model to Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the education sessions will take place on Wednesday, October 20, prior to the show opening. This will allow two full days of the show (Thursday and Friday) to be dedicated to exploration, discovery and connection, while Saturday, October 23, will be focused on International Sourcing to better help reconnect attendees, exhibitors, global suppliers and partners.
“After consulting key industry stakeholders and attendees, the decision to postpone to October was made to ensure maximum safety for all involved and to produce a successful event for all our participants,” explains Beth Casson (pictured left), event leader, National Hardware Show. “We know how eager everyone is to come together again, and are excited to unite in a brand new, state-of-the-art space in October.”

The National Hardware Show celebrates a rich history spanning 75 years of serving the home improvement marketplace. From its early beginnings in New York during the post-World War 2 housing boom and eventual move to Chicago in the 1970s, to today’s current location in Las Vegas, NHS continually evolves through the industry’s involvement, commitment and passion to improving quality of life through their homes and beyond. Today, NHS is the place for global manufacturers, associations, organizations and the media to get an unfiltered view of the industry, hands-on experiences and access to the latest innovations and retail trends to enhance their business.
