When the curtain rises on the 2011 National Hardware Show, attendees will be treated to a steady stream of new product introductions from industry leaders like 3M, Robert Bosch Tool Corp/, Char-broil, The Coleman Co., Jarden Safety & Security and many others.

“We are excited not only at the depth of suppliers signed up for the 2011 National Hardware Show, but at the unveiling of new products across all categories,” said Rich Russo, event director, National Hardware Show. “The industry can look forward to seeing some of the most creative solutions imaginable in all segments of the industry.”

This year’s nearly sold-out event -- to be held May 10 to 12 in Las Vegas -- will showcase innovations in Hardware & Tools, Homewares, Lawn & Garden/Outdoor Living, Paint & Accessories, Plumbing & Electrical, Storage & Organization, and Tailgate/Outdoor Recreation, as well as core product categories being featured in the Show’s International Sourcing area.

There will be four areas devoted to new products at the 2011 Show, including the New Product Launch Spotlight, with a highly visible location in the lobby of the Central Hall. New power tools from SKIL, Ryobi/Ridgid and others, as well as never-before-seen lawn and garden products will be tested in the Handy/Gardening How-To Product Test Shop, which also has exhibitors demonstrating their products in 15-minute slots each afternoon at the Show.
