International Home + Housewares Show 2017
A World-Class Showcase of Global Brands, Cutting-Edge Design
and Advanced Retail Intelligence
The International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago is the leading global marketplace to see the latest market-driven home goods products, designs and trends. It is a must-attend event for retailers and distributors who want to improve their business by differentiating their product offering and concepts.
With a strong focus on high-quality, high-design global brands, the Show features the entire product lines of the leading U.S. housewares brands, product suppliers and designers — not just the products pre-selected for export markets displayed at non-U.S. shows. Buyers have a chance to find new products and product lines that are not yet available in other markets.
Featuring over 2.100 exhibitors from more than 40 countries, the Show is configured into four expos:

In addition to the inspiration and ideas found visiting the great Chicago retailers, the International Home + Housewares Show offers first-class educational and networking opportunities for both specialty retailers and corporate buyers – special exhibitions and creative displays and a full lineup of seminars on trends & design, visual merchandising and branding, retail success factors and consumer preferences. Note especially the Pantone Color Watch display and seminars for the 2014/2015 color and material trends!
