Three Inventor Opportunities at 2012 National Hardware Show

National Hardware Show Logo

Like clockwork, the National Hardware Show is only 2 pages away on the calendar! Held annually in early May, the Hardware Show has become a highly anticipated event for our InventionHome staff.

InventionHome is pleased to once again co-sponsor the Inventor’s Spotlight area of the National Hardware Show, which is organized by the United Inventors Association (UIA). We find the Hardware Show to be one of the most robust tradeshows in the industry. It always brings strong traffic to our booth, meetings with great companies, and the opportunity to meet passionate inventors. This year’s show will be held May 1-3, 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

National Hardware Show Floor
This year's National Hardware Show promises another show floor packed with industry professionals looking for that next big product!

Before we flip another page on the calendar, you should consider the opportunities that the Hardware Show offers you:

1) Exhibit in the Inventor’s Spotlight Area

Due to overwhelming popularity at the show, the 2012 Inventor’s Spotlight is expanding with more space and an all-new location! Tradeshow staff has relocated the Inventor’s Spotlight to an exclusive second floor exhibition space called Innovation Station. This new exhibit area will be home to the latest inventor innovations and trends, and will also feature the New Product World and Green Product World. Show staff expects the Innovation Station to draw great foot traffic from show attendees including retail buyers, distributors, manufactures, press and others.

If you would like to attend and exhibit in the Inventor’s Spotlight at the 2012 National Hardware Show, please contact Cheryl Fishbone at or 203-840-5444.

2) Submit Your Product for a Chance to be Displayed at the InventionHome Booth

Don’t have time or money to exhibit your hardware product in person at the National Hardware Show? No problem. InventionHome is providing 3 lucky inventors with a chance to be selected to have their products displayed and represented in the InventionHome booth located directly in the Inventor’s Spotlight area. InventionHome will select 3 products from those submitted.

If selected, InventionHome will display your product at the show, manage any interest, subsequent follow up, contract negotiation and contract signing all with no up-front fee, no obligation and no risk. We only ask for a commission if we land a deal for your product as a result of the show.

3) Enter the Pitch Tank

What would you do with two minutes to pitch your product to one of the most influential figures in the Infomercial industry? InventionHome has teamed with Kevin Harrington, investor Shark on ABC’s Shark Tank and chairman of TVGoods, to give inventors 2-minutes each to pitch their products and receive professional feedback and a chance to win a 2-minute infomercial production deal from TVGoods.

Pitch Tank is open to exhibitors for a nominal fee at the 2012 Hardware Show. If you would like more information on the Pitch Tank, please contact Cheryl Fishbone at or 203-840-5444.

If you have interest in any of the above opportunities, don’t wait too long! Spaces are limited! And furthermore, those calendar pages seem to flip over awfully quickly!
