The National Hardware Show, taking place May 7-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, is excited to announce a variety of show classic and new featured product displays that will showcase the latest industry products and trends from exhibitors across various categories. As the industry’s most expansive show, the National Hardware Show is where home improvement experts, builders, remodelers and other industry leaders and professionals can experience everything home improvement all in one place.
“NHS’s featured product displays represent some of the most on-trend products that will be showcased during the show and we can’t wait to see them in person,” says Rich Russo, industry vice president for the National Hardware Show. “Our featured displays, including New Product Launch, New Product World and Interactive Smart Home, are important areas of the Show for attendees to see cutting edge products and trends in easy-to-browse locations.”
During the show, attendees can visit New Product Launch, Made in USA, Interactive Smart Home and both New Product World locations and use the new “hot hits” scanning capability within the NHS mobile app, sponsored by TCP. Products in those featured product display areas will have QR codes correlating to each product showcased, allowing attendees to scan each product to gather more information and save to view later. Each product that is scanned is then live-fed into the live leaderboard which will showcase the “hottest” and most scanned products. The live leaderboard can be viewed right in the NHS mobile app or on the interactive screens in the welcome center as well as on the screens in both New Product World locations.
