The Gardenex export federation is organising the British pavilion at the 2017 National Hardware Show (NHS) in Las Vegas from 9 to 11 May. It will be the 21st occasion that the federation has taken a group of British exhibitors to the major North American trade show, and a prime location has been reserved in the Lawn and Garden section (North Hall) for the UK companies.
Among the UK companies is VegTrug (Booth 10329), which is doubling the size of its booth space as a result of its expanding business in the US. VegTrug, well known for its self-contained raised planters, is adding several new products to its range for 2017/18. These include a nursery 4-tier greenhouse that is designed for smaller gardens and integrates with existing VegTrug products.
Two of the British exhibitors, Home to Garden and Nordic Garden Buildings, will be exhibiting at the NHS for the first time. Home to Garden Ltd (Booth 10335) is showing new Magic LED String Lights that are enclosed in a transparent, high quality glass sphere which hangs from a straight black chord.
Nordic Garden Buildings (Booth 10337) is displaying its award winning, maintenance-free garden buildings in both contemporary and traditional designs to suit any outdoor space. New products include Madison and Manhattan Garden Rooms that are extremely popular in the UK market and are ideal for US consumers who want to experience British design mixed with Scandinavian Hygge.
Other companies in the British group that have exhibited at the NHS on previous occasions are as follows:
