Bringing Buyers and Product Suppliers Together Throughout the Year
IHA’s NEW Digital Marketplace
Over the last year, traffic to Housewares Connect 365, IHA’s existing digital marketplace, increased exponentially as retailers sought new ways to discover new products and suppliers in absence of face-to-face events. Users to the platform have increased by 30% and total sessions by 34% since this time last year.
IHA is re-launching the platform as Connect 365, IHA’s Digital Marketplace, on May 4, 2021. We have added new features and functionality that will enhance members’ visual presence on the site, and encourage retailers to browse and gather information based on their individual preferences and profiles.
IHA members with a Housewares Connect 365 account have been moved over to the new platform, but because of the enhanced features and functionality, it is critical that you review and update your account before May 4th so that you can put your best face forward when the new platform launches.
Launch May 4th!
The new Connect 365 platform will be introduced and marketed to the industry beginning on May 4th. Take a few moments over the next three weeks to update your profile and your page(s) to make sure you are ready to be discovered by buyers and media.
