Update for 2020 Exhibitors
A Free Educational & Networking Event for Independent Retailers
The retail landscape is changing rapidly and all stores — whether mass, specialty, independent, gift or some combination of these — are looking for ways to evolve, compete and win in this new economy.
The International Housewares Association recognizes the unique challenges – and opportunities – that come with being an independent retailer of home goods in 2020. In addition to developing attractions and programming for independent retailers during the four days of The Inspired Home Show 2020, formerly the International Home + Housewares Show, will be holding a 1/2 day educational and networking event that focuses exclusively on how to succeed as an independent retailer in today’s market.
Join us before the Show opens to the larger industry — and take advantage of the insights and inspiration from a variety of speakers and topics.
