The World’s Leading Home + Housewares Show
March 2—4 | McCormick Place | Chicago, IL

The Inspired Home Show 2023 wrapped on March 7 at McCormick Place in Chicago after four highly productive days. After an initial return in 2022, the Show demonstrated significant year-over-year increases in both exhibitor and retailer participation. More than 1,600 exhibitors and nearly 30,000 home + housewares professionals from 125 countries came together to discover new products, reconnect with colleagues and advance the industry.

“The 2023 Show was an incredible step forward in the post-pandemic recovery of face-to-face events for the home + housewares industry,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the International Housewares Association. “The enthusiasm and positive feedback we have seen over the last four days reminds us all how important it is to gather the industry together in-person every year. It was particularly rewarding to see the return of so many who were unable to participate last year.”

Strong support for the Show was demonstrated by the industry, through the presence of major key retailers and leading exhibiting brands. Attendees confirmed at the Show included senior-level executives, DMMs, GMMs and buyers from major retailers around the world including:
