The Inspired Home Show® – IHA’s Global Home + Housewares Market

Formerly the International Home + Housewares Show, The Inspired Home Show is North America’s largest housewares trade show! They connect not only buyer to seller, but also product to lifestyle and the industry to the consumer mindset. Every year, more than 52,000 home and housewares professionals from more than 130 countries converge upon Chicago to discover new housewares products and industry trends, meet face-to-face with executives from top retail and manufacturer brands, and gain the insights, leads and exposure to jump-start a successful year. The Show is owned and operated by the International Housewares Association (IHA), which has a rich history within the housewares industry dating back more than 80 years.

One Show — Six Destinations

The Inspired Home Show features thousands of product categories across all home + housewares categories. We’ve made it easy to navigate by segmenting the Show into five Expos and the Hall of Global Innovation, which includes Smart Home, Smart Retailing and other progressive approaches to products and retailing in the home and housewares space.
