)-- Innovation Direct™, a South Florida-based leader in the area of intellectual property licensing now in its 15th year of serving the inventor community, is preparing to make one of its most productive and prolific stops on its annual trade show itinerary, the National Hardware Show. This year’s edition of the proceedings will take place May 10th-12th at the Las Vegas Convention Center and will feature an astounding and unprecedented 9 shows in 1, providing Innovation Direct™with the optimal opportunity to make significant inroads with potential licensees in multiple industries.
For several years, the National Hardware Show has been co-located with Lawn and Garden World and the Homewares Show, but has also been progressively increasing its diversity by incorporating exhibits centered in a variety of other popular industry segments. To this end, the 2011 edition of the show will also feature the following co-located exhibitions: Paint and Accessories, Plumbing and Electrical, Storage and Organization, Tailgate, Inventor’s Spotlight and Pet Products. This year’s proceedings will also feature an International Sourcing Area for companies and individuals wishing to explore the possibility of overseas manufacturing.
As per the event’s official website, a variety of awards ceremonies will celebrate excellence in different areas of these profitable industries, such as Lawn and Garden, Homewares and New Products in various categories that have yet to hit the market. Additionally, 4 dedicated areas featuring only New Products, which represents a 33% increase from the 2010 National Hardware Show, will be a featured part of the 2011 proceedings, corroborating how important and vital innovation is to all of the industries that the events will be focused on.
"We've always found this event to be particularly relevant to our invention roster due to the categories it focus on," commented Peter Doran, Innovation Direct™'s Managing Director. "However, we would now have to say that the additional industry segments that the event has taken on have significantly increased the importance of it to our company beyond past years!"
Innovation Direct™ particularly looks forward to participating in what should be one of the most enjoyable, informative and productive events of the year. Innovation Direct™ staff will network with companies at the National Hardware Show and its co-located events and will conduct subsequent follow-up after the proceedings have concluded and invite them to join Innovation Direct To Industry™, the company's complimentary e-mail invention information delivery service for manufacturers and marketers.
