NHS Announces 2016 Layout, Schedule Changes
The National Hardware Show (NHS) will once again host the event in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central and North Halls, beginning in 2016 – returning to the 2014 Show floor layout.
The NHS had occupied the Central and North Halls for many years; however, the 2015 show, held earlier this year, was moved to the Central and South halls to better accommodate growth opportunities for new and additional exhibiting companies.
As a result of this move back to the Central and North Halls, there are some important changes that will take place for the 2016 NHS, most notably the dates for the event.
The 2016 Show date and day pattern will shift by one day to Wednesday, May 4 through Friday, May 6 (previously Tuesday, May 3 through Thursday, May 5).
The Show Floor layout has also CHANGED and will more closely resemble the 2014 National Hardware Show, including:
- NORTH HALL: Lawn, Garden & Outdoor Living (including Pet and Farm & Ranch Products)
- CENTRAL HALL: Hardware & Tools, Paint & Accessories, Homewares, Plumbing & Electrical, and International Sourcing
- OUTDOORS, TAILGATE & RECREATION will move back to the Silver Lot in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center
In addition, many of the show features such as the NRHA Village & Stage, New Product World and New Product Launch, will move back into the lobby and others into meeting rooms.
