National Hardware Show

The National Hardware Show (NHS) is held every year by Reed Exhibitions in Las Vegas. It is a housing after-market show that brings together manufacturers and resellers of all products used to remodel, repair, maintain and decorate the home and garden.

The Show features Lawn & Garden World, Homewares and New Product World. The combined events provide a preview of the entire home enhancement marketplace with over 150 product categories.

The first National Hardware Show took place in New York City in 1945 and was created by Abe Rosenburg of General Tools, along with Charlie Snitow, General's Chief Legal Council.

In the early 1960s, Reed Exhibitions (previously Cahners Expositions Group) acquired Snitow's trade show business. The Show moved to Chicago's new McCormick Lakeside exhibit hall in 1975. In February 2003, Reed Exhibitions announced that the National Hardware Show was moving to Las Vegas.
