NHS boasts more than 2,500 exhibitors across more than 15 product categories from hardware and tools, homewares, smart home technology, to lawn and garden, outdoor living, tailgating essentials, and introducing tiny living — the newest category to NHS in 2019.

This event combines the benefits of two of the home improvement industry’s premiere gatherings in one place. Designed for retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and industry professionals alike, the conference lineup offers valuable insights into industrywide topics, including omnichannel retailing, the ever-changing consumer, generational trends and more. The full conference agenda will be announced later this month.

Interactive Experiences 

In addition to offering a variety of sections that mirror trending home categories, NHS offers several interactive experiences that are both informative and fun! The latest and greatest in grilling, outdoor living and more can be found in the Tailgate, Backyard & BBQ section.
