Inventor’s Spotlight at the National Hardware Show

The National Hardware Show is just around the corner and if you’ve got an innovative home-related product, this could be the show for you! With over 2,800 companies exhibiting, it’s one of the biggest baddest annual trade shows in the world. If you’re planning on heading out this May make sure to check out the Inventor’s Spotlight, sponsored by the United Invention Association (UIA) and Garden Weasel, a special exhibition category (and area?) reserved for new products.

Unique opportunities for Inventor’s Spotlight exhibitors include a chance to earn special recognition from the UIA in one of five categories like “most eco-friendly” and “best for simplicity.” Participants will also get to pitch their product live to the bigwigs at Garden Weasel–which apparently could “get your product licenced, promoted and possibly a TV commercial.”

And did I mention it’s in Las Vegas? So even if you don’t make a single sale, at least you can count on a free drink.

Sure sounds a heck of a lot more exciting than the World of Concrete my husband attends every year.
