Hanging Out at the Tradeshow

Hanging Out at the Tradeshow

The National Hardware Convention was an important event for Z Grills. It was a chance for us to represent our brand among our peers and learn more about how the grilling industry is evolving.

The president of Z Grills, along with the general operations manager, attended every day of the event to personally represent Z Grills and ensure our message was communicated. While there, they also made sure that all questions and concerns about our products were addressed.

On display was our premium 700 series grills, featuring 700 square inches of cooking space with a cooking heat range from 180°F to 475°, and offering ample cabinet space underneath the grill barrell.

We also had our 550B grills, featuring  528 square inches of cooking space and also having a cooking heat range from 180°F to 475°F. The 550B also has two back wheels for easy mobility from your garage to your backyard or wherever!


With that said, the show was awesome! It was fun, surprising, and a great space to meet new friends while reconnecting with old colleagues. It also offered an impressive diversity of vendors. We discovered many new trends in the grilling industry while being introduced to all kinds of cool products for outdoor recreation.

Some of the most random and priceless moments during the event were when costume characters marched around the convention, offering photos opportunities. Among the rogues gallery of characters were a barbarian escorted by two women in Roman togas. More amusing was a giant mosquito, probably sponsored by a pest control company, who was walking around looking to get swatted.

Outside the convention center were grill vendors who were sampling food. Barbecue grilling exhibits presented a tangy offering of barbecue rubs and sauces. Their were Cajon rubs and Spicy BBQ sauces along with grilled meats and seafood..

This event was definitely a boon for Z Grills. We were able to build new friendships and rediscovered old ones. We made contact with a variety of vendors that provide grilling accessories such as rubs and sauces. Keep your eye out with more about what's next for us and how these events shape the future of everything Z Grills.

Amazing Show, Amazing Grills

Amazing Show, Amazing Grills

This week Z Grills has had the honor of participating in the National Hardware Show, which is put on by the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA). We have set up an amazing booth, which presented all our grill models, which are available on our website in addition to many online retailers like Amazon and store retailers like Home Depot.

The show happens every year for the last 75 years at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It serves the hardware and home improvement industry and is the hub for the industry with over 20,000 industry professionals, over 120 media outlets, and more than 15 different product categories. The trade convention showcases everything from homewares, international sourcing, and Made in the USA products.

During the first day of the show, everyone on the Z Grills team was impressed with the diversity of products and companies participating. There were around 15 different grill companies, covering everything from wood pellet grills to gas grills to classic charcoal grills.

There was also everything else you could imagine in outdoor hardware. One of the most outstanding exhibits were among lawn furniture vendors, offering everything from high quality plush seating to the old fashion beach folding chairs. There were fire-pit vendors offering modest pits with more premium vendors offering large and ornate fire-pits. One of the most elaborate displays were  lawn umbrella vendors. One vendor offered a large umbrella that hung from its stem like a lamp, another vendor displayed their large umbrellas stacked into a tower rising several feet above the convention center.

Z Grills was proud to participate once again at this event to ensure our brand is recognized and represented amongst the vast swath of manufactures of everything outdoors and recreational!

Last week Z Grills participated in the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. It was an exciting opportunity for everyone in the company to represent our brand among nationally and globally renowned barbecue grill vendors.

Our goal was to ensure our product presentation outshined our competitors. Our message was that Z Grills leads among grill brands in quality, usability, and value! We stand behind these ideals as the key to our success.

There were many other grill vendors present, but we reaped praise for having the most impressive booth. Adorning our space was a diverse collection of our top models: 700E, 505B, 7002B, and the 450A. Additionally, we had a presentation of various prototype models, some of which  we will begin selling soon!

Our team met with many big retailers and other vendors, which gave us an excellent opportunity to share our passion for grilling and excitement with our 8-in-1 Z Grills. We were keen on not only explaining the diversity of grilling methods available with our one grill, but also our digital control system that allows grillmasters to set it and forget.

It was a big moment for everyone at Z Grills, and we look forward to the next tradeshow to experss why we have the best grills on the market!
