Nicole Crews -- Casual Living, May 2, 2012
May is the month to head to Vegas for both the 2012 National Hardware Show (NHS), May 1-3, and The Center of Design & Innovation Hospitality Design Expo+Conference 2012 (HDExpo), May 15-17. The shows represent two distinct aspects of the outdoor industry, with HDExpo's contract design innovators juxtaposed with NHS's lawn and garden, tailgating and tool set. Both shows bring the big picture of today's outdoor lifestyle into focus. Here's a sampling of what they have to offer.
