for on-hand ready-to-ship items

While demand for your products remains strong, the ability to fill orders is hamstrung by shipping issues that face the entire industry. That being said, you likely have product available – it just might not be your traditional best-sellers or your newest innovations.

With the probable inventory draught coming post-holidays in Q1, retailers will need to consider new suppliers and new product lines, prioritizing the ability to get product on shelves over current suppliers or even the newest or most popular SKUs.  By March of 2022, retailers are going to be hungry for supply, and the product you have on-hand is likely to see a resurgence in demand.  Exhibitors can use The Inspired Home Show to help alleviate this crisis.  The need for inventory will be immediate, which means that retailers are going to be ready to negotiate and write orders in Chicago this March for on-hand, ready-to-ship items.
