InventionHome Success at the 2014 National Hardware Show


For the forth consecutive year, InventionHome sponsored the “Inventor’s Spotlight” at the National Hardware Show (NHS) in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year’s show took place May 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With 27,000 attendees, this tradeshow marks the pinnacle event for the $343 billon dollar home improvement market.


Highlights of the 2014 show include:

  • In collaboration with show organizers, InventionHome coordinated private pitch events with hardware companies including Iron Bridge Tools, DAP, Techtronic Industries and NCH.
  • “Pitch the Experts” panelists (including InventionHome’s Colleen Kelly) provided inventors with valuable insight ranging from their pitches, marketing tips, development, etc.
  • The InventionHome marketing team fortified relationships with many hardware “member” companies and also added many new companies to our membership ranks.
  • Day 3 of the show was hailed as “Innovation Day” and gave tribute to various areas of the show (including the InventionHome Inventor’s Spotlight).
  • The UIA ‘Education Forum’ took place on May 5 and provided inventors with FREE access to educational speakers on a variety of invention topics.
  • We met Elvis (and his brother).
