The National Hardware Show will join the NAHB International Builders' Show and the NKBA's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show at Design & Construction Week next year, which will be held in Las Vegas Jan. 31 to Feb. 2.
"We are absolutely thrilled that the National Hardware Show will be in Las Vegas during the same time that Design & Construction Week takes place," says Jerry Howard, NAHB CEO. "NHS creates synergy with the International Builders' Show and NKBA's Kitchen and Bath Show. Co-locating NHS with IBS and KBIS will allow attendees to explore additional products and opportunities to grow their businesses and maintain a competitive edge in the market."
"We think having the National Hardware Show co-locate with us in Las Vegas next year is a great opportunity to expand Design & Construction Week," says Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. "It gives Design & Construction Week attendees more products and services to experience during their three days at the show. It's also a great way for all three associations to better serve their respective members as we look to the future."
"Our customers benefit from more value and opportunity during their time in Las Vegas by aligning with two other industry leading events. NHS, IBS & KBIS events have complementary product offerings that will broaden buying and selling opportunities," said Beth Casson, National Hardware Show Event Vice President. "NHS is the destination for uncovering trends and sourcing new products and suppliers. By hosting the show earlier in the year, this gives buyers an opportunity to kick off the year with discovery and connection, while allowing more time for critical decisions before big buying events. We've heard that this timing and an NHS collaboration with these events would be a great benefit to our customers, so we are thrilled to make this happen for our NHS Community."
