Here is a statement from the National Hardware Show organizers as they continue to monitor the situation with the Covid-19 virus and the status of the show:

Dear Industry Members,   

Over the last few weeks, the National Hardware Show has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 virus and its impact on members of the global hardware and home improvement community, including the business disruptions caused by cancelled or postponed events. We understand the concerns of our customers and do not take them lightly. In fact, we want to hear from you with any questions or concerns you may have! 

The National Hardware Show firmly believes in the importance of an industry gathering place and is committed to hosting the Show as planned May 5-7, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Please know that the health and safety of exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff is, and will always be, our number one priority. We are collaborating closely with the Las Vegas Convention Center and local public health authorities and following local, state and federal public health guidelines, including those issued by the CDC. If their advice and guidelines is updated, we will immediately let you know.   

Details about our precautions are available in a statement on our website.   

As we countdown the weeks leading up to NHS, we’re continuing to see daily increases in buyer and retailer registrations. We’re excited to make this an event not to be missed as we celebrate our 75th anniversary of connecting the industry! The time to begin engaging with your industry is now…secure your presence at the Show and book your booth space today and let us be the place where you equip your customer and empower your business.   In an effort to eliminate misinformation and be transparent we will be providing a weekly status update to ensure you have the most accurate information regarding NHS. Our entire industry has certainly been impacted at a global level – it’s now more important than ever to come together.   

With that in mind, please see the following official statements and helpful links as we navigate this together.
