What is the NRHA All-Industry Conference?


The North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) All-Industry Conference is a series of educational seminars and networking opportunities held annually in conjunction with the National Hardware Show® at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. Hosting these events together combines the benefits of two of the home improvement industry's premiere gatherings in one place. Designed for retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and industry professionals alike, the conference lineup offers valuable insights into industrywide topics, including omnichannel retailing, the changing consumer, generational trends and more. Connect with NRHA on Facebook, Twitter and on HardwareRetailing.com to be the first to get the latest conference updates.

The NRHA Village: Where Independent Retailers Connect


The NRHA Village serves as home base for the NRHA All-Industry Conference. It functions not only as the location where retailers, manufacturers and distributors forge new relationships with one another, but features the NRHA Village Stage, which is where the educational presentations, seminars and award ceremonies take place throughout the conference.

The Latest Research and Industry-Specific Action Items


The NRHA All-Industry Conference is the one industry event where retailers have the opportunity to hear proprietary research and best practices straight from the experts. NRHA designs the stage presentations to specifically serve the independent channel, so every minute of the conference has an action item or a takeaway.

Bring a Friend and Make a Friend


Along with educational seminars, the NRHA All-Industry Conference offers countless opportunities for independent retailers to meet with and learn from their peers. The Independent Retailer Reception, held in the NRHA Village at the end of the first day of the conference, provides a laidback environment to meet new people who do what you do, but maybe in a different way. You never know what great ideas you’ll take away from the Independent Retailer Reception.
