Recapping the 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show
We had a great week at this year’s NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Nevada! The Stone Harbor Hardware booth saw a number of visitors, and the entire week provided an opportunity for us to highlight a few of the new and exciting products that we offer. Let’s recap how the week went for Stone Harbor Hardware and where the industry is headed in 2023 and beyond!
Largescale Recap of the Show
Design & Construction Week saw over 200,000 industry professionals come to Las Vegas to take part in the various co-dated industry shows that included the NAHB International Builders’ Show and the NKBA Kitchen & Bath Industry Show. KBIS itself saw over 40,000 attendees and featured 500 exhibitors spread throughout nearly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space within the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Stone Harbor Hardware at the Show
Our booth was located within the Central Hall of the convention center, and we had many visitors ask about our featured products. Our new Urban cabinet collection and our Bi-Fold Barn Door sets drew a lot of attention and inquiries. Satin brass and matte black finishes appear to continue trending, as they were by far the most popular finishes we observed in other booths.
Of the builders, contractors, and remodelers we spoke with in the Stone Harbor booth, most were on the hunt for bathroom, cabinet, and door hardware. Additionally, the outlook of the industry may be heading in a more optimistic direction than other projections have indicated!
The Show Through the Eyes of a First-Timer
One of our employees, Meagan, was able to attend the show for the first time this year. Meagan is a Marketing and Graphic Design Specialist with Stone Harbor Hardware and had this to say about her experience at this year’s International Builders Show:
“I was able to attend my first trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada this year! It was a great experience to meet different exhibitors and promoting our new products for Stone Harbor. We got some pretty good leads featuring contractors and interior designers. I was able to walk around and see other exhibitors and the different products that they were showcasing. I would like to go back and see more exhibitors and other products for the next year!”
We have already begun planning for next year’s show and can’t wait to see where the industry as a whole is headed in 2023 and beyond!
