Looking Ahead to the 2018 National Hardware Show

National Hardware Show, Las Vegas Convention Center, May 8-10, 2018

Like many in our industry, Schaffer Associates is gearing up to attend the National Hardware Show (NHS) in Las Vegas next month.  Senior members of our team will join thousands of professionals on May 8-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center to explore and examine the latest trends, technology, and tools of the trade that are shaping our industry.

Last year’s Show was seen as a huge success, with over 2,600 exhibitors and more than 30,000 attendees.  The 2018 Show promises to build on those numbers in the 73rd installment of the NHS, which began post-World War 2 in New York City.  This year’s Show boasts new interactive exhibits, technologically-enhanced trend showcases, an upgraded NRHA All-Industry Conference, and a redesigned look and logo.  The Show features more than 15 major product categories, a return of the Reimagine Retail program, and exhibits highlighting trends like smart homes, enhanced backyard living, and tiny homes.

Our team at Schaffer Associates is excited to attend this year’s National Hardware Show, and we are eager to connect with you in Vegas.  As NHS will doubtlessly show, companies in our industry are in a constant search for talented individuals and better management techniques, and we can help you find both.  We hope you’ll contact one of our senior team members below who are attending the Show to set up a time to connect.  We’ll see you there!
