Ty Hagler, Trig Innovation’s principal and designer-in-chief, will be attending the National Hardware Show (NHS) this week in Las Vegas (May 10-12).
The National Hardware Show will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and feature over 2300 vendors and more than 100,000 new products. The NHS, sponsored by the North American Retail Hardware Association, brings together companies, vendors, and members of the trade media to showcase new products coming to hardware retailers throughout the United States in the coming year. Of the nine specialty areas featured at this year’s show, Trig Innovation has built practice areas in Hardware and Tools, Lawn, Garden, and Outdoor Living, and Homewares.
“The National Hardware Show is something that I look forward to all year,” stated Hagler. “To me, the show is about innovation coming alive right before our very eyes. The product development process—from ideation and concept refinement, all the way to launch—is very complex, and there’s really no such thing as instant gratification. And the feeling I always get about these shows, NHS in particular, is that companies are out there winning every day through focused, bright innovation. Not only do I have the privilege of meeting great people—I’m meeting people who are achieving success in the marketplace at the core of Trig’s business.”
Throughout the week, Hagler and Trig staff will be consulting with companies on their future needs in product development and planning, as well as meeting with members of the trade media who support the hardware retailing industry.
