Show Information

Entirely home improvement, exclusively independent.

The Independent Home Improvement Show (IHIS) is uniquely designed to connect independent retailers with leading manufacturers. At IHIS you will create personalized, meaningful connections, develop strategic sourcing opportunities and walk away with top notch education to arm yourself in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace.

Launching in August alongside the Independent Garden Center Show, the industry’s largest trade show and conference for independent garden center owners, managers and buyers, the Independent Home Improvement Show is where the extensive home improvement industry comes together in one place because of one goal: to support the future and business development of independent retailers.

The Independent Home Improvement Show is powered by the National Hardware Show (NHS). For nearly 75 years, the National Hardware Show has served the hardware and home improvement industry as the prime time place for face-to-face sourcing, networking and business development—always growing and expanding to keep you in the know and ahead of your competition. Seeing a new opportunity to provide an additional setting for independent retailers to get a more dedicated sourcing and business development environment, NHS expanded its portfolio to bring its industry experience and passion by launching the Independent Home Improvement Show.
