Visiting the National Hardware Show is one of the highlights of our year at Baysource Global. Not only are there incredible clever gadgets, but you get to meet the inventors and innovators behind them. The National Hardware Show is growing every year, and this year attracted over 2800 exhibitors and 110+ inventors.
When you arrive at the National Hardware Show, you can tell that you are in the presence of some of the greatest innovators, who are at a pivotal point in their careers. Tradeshows are often the first places that product innovators go to get their product in front of people and get real-time feedback. The first step for many inventors is going to a tradeshow, then preparing prototypes and finally sending out sales samples, which will likely give them dominion over the invention.
