The National Association of Home Builders is pleased to welcome the National Hardware Show (NHS) as part of the 10th annual Design & Construction Week (DCW), Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2023, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
For nine years, DCW has featured the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). It is the largest annual gathering of residential construction and design industry professionals, typically featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting brands spanning 1,000,000 net square feet of exhibit space. This in-person event will spotlight new products, industry experts, and numerous networking opportunities.
The addition of NHS will bring even more energy to this dynamic event.
“This is an exciting development for the industry as we prepare to celebrate the 10th anniversary of DCW,” said Jerry Howard, NAHB’s chief executive officer. “Co-locating NHS with IBS and KBIS will allow attendees to explore additional products and opportunities to grow their businesses and maintain a competitive edge in the market.”
Attendance at the 2022 IBS in Orlando this February far exceeded expectations, demonstrating the strong desire of housing professionals to get together for in-person networking, learn from dynamic education sessions, and see the most innovative new products. NAHB announced that more than 45,000 industry professionals filled the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando for the 2022 IBS, while DCW drew more than 70,000 attendees overall.
IBS, the premier event for the residential construction industry, offers products, connections, and education. The added opportunity to walk the exhibits of NHS is another great reason to attend. Learn more about IBS and DCW at BuildersShow.com.

A wide range of resources, including economic analysis, talking points, and insightful webinars are available at nahb.org/supplychain to help industry professionals develop strategies for these difficult market conditions.
