The Inspired Home Show reports strong performance

Four highly productive days concluded on 7 March at McCormick Place in Chicago with over 1,600 exhibitors and almost 30,000 home and housewares professionals from 125 countries in attendance.

Organisers, the International Housewares Association, said the show demonstrated significant year-on-year increases in both exhibitor and retailer participation.

The IHA has also announced that the 2024 show will take place from 16 to 19 March, 2024 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Derek Miller, president and ceo of the IHA, commented: “The 2023 show was an incredible step forward in the post-pandemic recovery of face-to-face events for the home and housewares industry. The enthusiasm and positive feedback we have seen over the last four days reminds us all how important it is to gather the industry together in-person every year.

“It was particularly rewarding to see the return of so many who were unable to participate last year.”

The show featured multiple new and returning attractions in 2023, including the addition of the travel gear and luggage category, created in partnership with the Travel Goods Association; The pre-show new exhibitor preview and Trending Today, which featured brands and products new to the show; The gia Global Innovation Awards, honouring the excellence in home and housewares retailing, product design and student achievement; Four keynotes focused on the future of housewares trends in consumer and retail evolution; Innovation Theatre sessions featuring experts; The return of the Housewares Cares Charity Gala, benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and others.
