International Home & Housewares show
March 6-8
McCormick Place
Chicago, IL, USA

An international showcase of household and home products organized by the International Housewares Association. The 2011 Home and Housewares show is divided into four categories: Clean and Contain, Dine and Design, Wired and Well and Global Crossroads, which contains the stall of international exhibitors. On average the show attracts around 60,000 professional attendees, 15,000 US buyers and 6,000 international buyers from over 100 countries per year. In terms of visitor numbers the show is therefore much smaller than Ambiente (February 11-15) yet larger than the Thailand International Furniture Fair (March 16-20).
