    The Future of Housewares

    Housewares are getting smart. Not just how they’re designed and how they function, but how they’re sold. Connectivity is being incorporated into nearly every corner of the home – from light bulbs to coffee brewers, from thermostats to ovens – connected products, once only a dream, are fast becoming a reality.

    The in-store retail experience is catching up. Interactive displays, augmented reality and experiential activities are playing a role in keeping consumers engaged in brick-and-mortar establishments. New retail models are making it possible for emerging product developers to come to market. All of these concepts are on full display in the Hall of Global Innovation at The Inspired Home Show.
