RNO Exhibitions and the National Hardware Show, a home improvement tradeshow, announced Feb. 25 that both companies are officially working together on the inaugural launch of the Spring 2015 Outdoor Supply Auction to be held as a new buying opportunity within the National Hardware Show (NHS), May 5-7, 2015, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“This is an exciting new concept that is complementary to the National Hardware Show and enables our brand to continue to meet the industry’s need for platforms to grow their business. Extensive research revealed a strong opportunity and together with RNO we have built an auction event to meet this critical need,” stated Richard Russo, industry vice president, NHS.
The Outdoor Supply Auction (OSA) was conceived with the intent of bringing the best of what the tradeshow industry has to offer and blending it with the excitement and the certainty of sale at auction. OSA uses proprietary cloud based and mobile app technology, My Guerilla, that brings buyers and sellers together creating a one of a kind selling event. No other technology delivers real-time buyer leads during the Show for participating exhibitors and sellers.
“The National Hardware Show and their parent company, Reed Exhibitions, is a worldwide leader of event planning and a true innovator in the tradeshow industry. Their participation brings to mind one word…success!” said Vince Webb, president, RNO.
This is an all-new buying opportunity for National Hardware Show attendees with no sign up fee, no minimum and no reserve auction on millions of dollars of merchandise. During the 3-day buying event, hundreds of different product lots will be sold from a wide range of new, overstock, discontinued, seasonal change and packaging change products from all National Hardware Show product categories at discounted prices.
