Grants for Chicago show exhibitors up for grabs from BHETA

BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association) has secured grants to help suppliers towards the cost of exhibiting at next year’s International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.

The new exhibitor grants, which are worth £2,000, are from the Department for International Trade. They add to existing funding opportunities for BHETA members including financial support for the German shows Ambiente (to be held in Frankfurt from February 9 to February 13) and the International Hardware Fair (to be held in Cologne from March 4 to March 7).

The 2018 US event will take place from March 10 to March 13. According to the International Housewares Association (IHA), which owns and operates the show, exhibiting at the annual US event is ‘your opportunity to join the world’s largest audience of home goods and housewares professionals. Every year more than 62,000 of the world’s most important professionals gather to do business at Chicago’s state-of-the-art McCormick Place Exposition Center’.

The 2017 show was sold-out with 2,204 exhibitors from 47 countries.

Interested BHETA members can apply for an exhibitor grant via links on the BHETA website at or contact Dawn Clarke at  for an application form.
