For more than 80 years, the International Housewares Association (IHA) has hosted the industry’s premier home + housewares trade show. Retail buyers come to Chicago every year to discover new products and innovations, to meet with current suppliers and to find new opportunities.
The Show attracts top global key retailers in 13 channels, and thousands of independent specialty buyers from 130 countries.
Thousands of buyers you won’t see at any other trade event – and they spend significant time and energy taking full advantage of their time in Chicago.
