On February 10, the National Hardware Show (NHS) announced that the 75th anniversary event will now take place October 21-23, 2021. The show will remain in the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, but will move to the newly opened West Hall.
While this schedule changes the Show’s daily model to Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the Education sessions will take place on Wednesday, October 20th, prior to the Show opening. This will allow two full days of the Show (Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd) to be dedicated to exploration, discovery and connection, while Saturday, October 23rd will be focused on International Sourcing to better help reconnect attendees, exhibitors, global suppliers and partners.
“After consulting key industry stakeholders and attendees, the decision to postpone to October was made to ensure maximum safety for all involved and to produce a successful event for all our participants,” said Beth Casson, Event Leader, National Hardware Show. “We know how eager everyone is to come together again, and are excited to unite in a brand new, state-of-the-art space in October.”
