The National Hardware Show, owned and operated by Reed Exhibitions, has reported that some 1,514 manufacturers have contracted to exhibit at the 2004 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, NV, U.S., May 10-12, 2004. In addition, more than 3,000 retailers, wholesalers, and distributors have registered to attend the show.

The home improvement trade show, owned and operated by Reed for nearly 60 years, was recently re-organized after declining attendance and exhibitor support at its annual Chicago, IL, U.S. show. Reed says that it decided to improve several aspects of the show, including new timing, location, program content, and lower costs.

With recent exhibitors signing on such as Black & Decker, Scotts Company, and Zinsser, Reed says that the 2004 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas is proving to be the preferred home improvement show for the industry.

"We are thrilled to have Briggs & Stratton, Scotts, and Zinsser join the 2004 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas," said Rob Cappiello, industry vice president for the 2004 National Hardware Show. "We have the top brands, the top buyers, the most innovative exhibitors, the largest offering of new products, and the most inspiring educational content. "The industry has noticed, and they’re betting on Las Vegas."

Mr. Cappiello noted that the Industry Summit on Home Improvements has been a major attraction for exhibitors and attendees. "It will be the first such educational event for the home improvement industry, and will feature more than 60 high-profile speakers on timely topics like women in home improvement, lawn and garden retailing and new demographic research."

New offerings at the 2004 National Hardware Show include:

  • New Product World provides a unique stage for tomorrow’s hot products. It offers innovative merchandising displays and hands-on demonstrations in a "real store" setting so buyers, manufacturers and retailers can see the industry’s new products and trends.
  • The Industry Summit on Home Improvements is a comprehensive, multi-conference educational offering. It features 12 education tracks with 60 sessions for retailers, buyers, distributors, marketers, and manufacturers
  • Lawn & Garden World will showcase the top trends, manufacturers, and new products for outdoor living. Features include the latest lawn, garden and outdoor living products and accessories, along with business-building seminars led by industry experts.
