International Home Housewares Show

Should You Exhibit at the International Home + Housewares Show “Inventors Corner”?

The International Home + Housewares Show with roots dating back to 1906, has earned its reputation as the best venue for companies to introduce their housewares-related products to the Industry. The Show is the largest housewares-only fair in the world, boasting over 60,000 home goods professionals in attendance with over 20,000 buyers.


Of particular interest to inventors and small startups is the Inventors Corner , the area where companies congregate seeking new and unique products for licensing and distribution, making it one of the top destinations at the Show year after year.

Besides exhibit space in the high traffic Inventors Corner, an inventor’s booth includes free access to inventor educational seminars, chances to pitch products in person to industry expert review panels, and inclusion in the InventionHome AfterShow, an online presentation made available to companies after the show ends. The AfterShow gives inventors further exposure and another opportunity to connect with companies that may have missed their booth.

This year there will be more opportunity for inventors to gain valuable feedback from industry experts. Two panel review sessions will be offered each day of the Show to ensure that every inventor gets one or more chances to pitch their product to the experts. Experts in product development, marketing, licensing, etc. will listen and advise Inventors Corner exhibitors how to succeed in commercializing their inventions.

Exhibit space is on sale now and is available on a first-come first-served basis. Booths were sold out last year so we encourage you to make your plans early if you wish to attend.

Where: Chicago, Illinois
When: March 15 – 18 2014
