The Inspired Home Show 2024 wrapped on March 19 at McCormick Place in Chicago after three days. The Show featured 1,648 exhibitors from 38 countries with nearly 30,000 home and housewares professionals from over 120 countries coming together to discover new products, connect with colleagues and advance the industry.

“The 2024 Show built on the success of last year’s Show with total square feet of exhibition space being slightly higher. The change to the format was positive, making the Show incredibly efficient – moving between the three primary Expos, now consolidated into two halls rather than three, was well received by both exhibitors and buyers,” International Housewares Association president and CEO, Derek Miller said.

Strong support for the Show was demonstrated by the industry, through the presence of major key retailers and leading exhibiting brands.

Attendees included senior-level executives, DMMs, GMMs and buyers from major retailers around the world including US-based Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Home Depot, JC Penney, Lowes, Macy’s, Target, Walmart and Williams-Sonoma, UK-based John Lewis, Lakeland, Tesco and QVC, as well as several major European retailers. Closer to home, New Zealand-based Mitre 10 and Smith & Caughey’s representatives were present.  

There were more than 400 new and returning companies showcasing their new products including Bosch, Cuisinart, Joseph Joseph and Midea, with first-time exhibitors including BLENDi and Cricut.

A complete list of exhibiting companies and brands, along with product details can be found on IHA’s Connect 365, the Show’s online directory or through the mobile app.

The Inspired Home Show 2025 will take place March 2 to March 4 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
