The International Housewares Association (IHA) will bring the home and housewares community together at The Inspired Home Show 2024 being held from March 17 to 19 at Chicago’s McCormick Place Complex.
More than 1,700 exhibitors will welcome buyers in a newly configured layout over three full days. The Show will open on March 17 and close on March 19 from 8:30am to 5:30pm each day. A ‘power hour’ from 5:30 to 6:30pm on Sunday and Monday will allow buyers and exhibitors to complete meetings in progress at Show end.
The new layout has the Wired + Well Expo moving from the Lakeside Center to the North Hall, co-locating with the Clean + Contain Expo. Exhibits and displays located in the Lakeside Center Lobby, including the Smart Home Pavilion and Inventors Corner, will now be located in the North and South Halls. The International Sourcing Expo will return to Level 1 of the North Hall.
“We’re excited about the new configuration as it creates the most vibrant, productive and efficient trade show experience possible for buyers and sellers,” IHA president and CEO, Derek Miller said.
“Positioning the three primary expos, which also includes Dine + Décor, together in the North and South Halls, brings the industry’s core categories into a central location that is much easier and more efficient to navigate with quick trips between two halls now being possible.”
Buyer attendees will find new innovation throughout the Show from 300 first-time and returning companies, of which more than 100 well-known brands are back after an absence including Artland, BergHOFF, BSH Bosch, Cool Gear, Corkcicle, Cuisinart, Emile Henry, Fissler, J.K. Adams, Everplush-Tricol Clean, Jean Dubost, Joseph Joseph, Keurig/Dr. Pepper, Lotus Sustainables, Midea, Opinel, Range Kleen, Scan Pan, Stolzle Lausitz Glassware and Tramontina.
