LAS VEGAS – The National Hardware Show (NHS) merges a historically consumer-focused event, formerly known as the Tiny House Jamboree, into the hardware event for professionals.
The new Tiny Living @ NHS will focus on the business of small building and construction technology, with an array of specialized exhibitors as well as experiences geared towards the tiny house movement. Tiny Living @ NHS will take place May 7-9, 2019 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Tiny Living @ NHS provides builders, developers, product/service providers, government officials, retailers, non-profits and other real estate professionals an unparalleled opportunity to meet and connect directly with lumber and building supply dealers, manufacturers of the world's largest variety of small living related products and services, and more to discover new and unique products specific to the tiny living movement,” said Rich Russo, Industry Vice President for the National Hardware Show. “Not only will attendees have the opportunity to network, but also to sit in on educational seminars, tour actual tiny homes and more, making the National Hardware Show the destination for staying up-to-date on the tiny living industry.”
Tiny Living @ NHS will feature a multitude of exhibitors, such as Mr. Cool, Karavan Trailers, La Siesta Inc., and more, that specialize in products and services focused on tiny living needs and trends. These brands (and many more!) will be interspersed among more than 2,400 leading brands – new and recognized – in the hardware and home space, giving attendees unprecedented access to discover everything they need in one place.
Tiny Living @ NHS is also the only event where builders, developers, product/service providers, government officials, retailers, non-profits and other real estate professionals that cater to the tiny living movement can network with more than 30,000 hardware, building supply and other industry professionals.
Small Build & Construction Technology Conference
Included as part of Tiny Living @ NHS programming, the Small Build & Construction Technology Conference is an event for industry leaders to discover new technologies, create collaborative opportunities, and learn together to advance the industry. The two-day conference will feature a mixture of interactive panels with industry veterans such as:
