The National Hardware Show (NHS) announced the 2020 Show will take place virtually October 12-15, 2020. The first ever National Hardware Virtual Show will provide the global hardware and home improvement community with the tools needed to equip customers, empower businesses, and engage with industry leaders from the comfort of their home or office.
The National Hardware Virtual Show will feature a full slate of educational programming focused on today’s challenges and trending topics. In addition to educational seminars, there will be an all-star roster of keynote speakers including Do it Best president and CEO Dan Starr and other industry innovators at the NRHA All-Industry Conference.
During the Virtual Show, attendees will be able to sync up their calendars and allow NHS to help facilitate direct and virtual appointment setting via Jublia between top industry buyers, retailers and NHS suppliers and manufacturers. Additionally, attendees will get the chance to see and source the newest products and tools to help expand their current product offerings without ever having to leave their home of business.
“Throughout these unprecedented times, our primary objective at the National Hardware Show has been to support our community, listen to our customers and facilitate and further the personal and professional connections that our industry is built on, in the safest possible way,” said Randy Field, Group Vice President, Reed Exhibitions. “While we won’t be able to convene in person this year, we’re working tirelessly to make sure our virtual event in October delivers the unique and fruitful experiences you’ve come to know and expect from the National Hardware Show.”
Rich Russo, industry vice president, National Hardware Show said, “Over the past few months, our team has had to rethink everything, and open our minds to new, innovative ideas. We’re excited about our pivot to virtual which allows us to bring our robust NHS programming to customer across the globe in a new, safe way.”
