ORLANDO, FL — In a boon for members of the design, construction, and home improvement industry, three of the leading trade shows will take place at the same time in 2023, furthering the offering of what attendees can see next year.
The National Hardware Show® (NHS), NAHB International Builders' Show® (IBS) and NKBA's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) at Design & Construction Week® will be held in Las Vegas, NV January 31 to February 2.
"We are absolutely thrilled that the National Hardware Show (NHS) will be in Las Vegas during the same time that Design & Construction Week takes place," said Jerry Howard, CEO of the National Association of Home Builders. "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," said Bill Darcy, Chief Executive Officer for the National Kitchen & Bath Association. "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."
The National Hardware Show has a 76 year history of serving the home improvement marketplace. From its early beginnings in New York during the post-World War Two housing boom and eventual move to Chicago in the 1970s, to today's current location in Las Vegas, NHS is a leading event, as well as education and networking platform, serving the hardware and home improvement industry.
