Should you exhibit your product at the upcoming National Hardware Show (May 10-12th)?

If you want exposure to thousands of industry professional looking for new products and the opportunity to learn from industry experts, YES…you should consider exhibiting at this show.

The trend in National Tradeshows is to include a “micro tradeshow” for inventors within the overall tradeshow.  This offers a huge benefit to independent inventors by allowing them to exhibit in the inventor areas for a fraction of the cost of the main show while providing mass exposure to all the companies at the tradeshow.  The inventor areas have become a destination for companies to see many inventions in one location.  My company, InventionHome, sponsors the National Hardware Show’s Inventors Spotlight and we highly recommend it.  This year’s Inventors Spotlight will feature a free Inventor Education Seminar with a variety of expert speakers including Mr. Dave Kappos, the head of the US Patent & Trademark Office.

What you need
What do you need in place to exhibit at a tradeshow?  I would strongly recommend that you have a patent application on file with the USPTO, either a provisional or non-provisional application, before exhibiting.  You will also need a good demonstrable prototype or finished product presentation for buyers to evaluate.

National Hardware Show (Las Vegas Convention Center / May 10 – 12)
The National Hardware Show is a housing after-market show that brings together manufacturers and resellers of all products used to remodel, repair, maintain and decorate the home and garden. This show attracts a worldwide audience of more than 27,000 industry professionals in over 150 product categories.
