With three months to go before opening day, Chicago’s 2013 International Home + Housewares Show is 97% sold out, according to the exhibition’s owner and operator the International Housewares Association.
“With the economy showing signs of growth, the demand from exhibitors for space in the show has been unprecedented,” says Phil Brandl, IHA president. “We’re also encouraged by the return of several familiar companies who are exhibiting after a brief absence.”
The show will host over 2,100 exhibitors from around the world, including 400 new companies exhibiting for the first time. Amongst suppliers returning after an absence as well as some new exhibitors are: Grunwerg, Hanna’s Candles, Igloo Products, Koziol, Menu, Rayware, SALT Sisters, Jarden Consumer Solutions, Spectrum Brands, Debbie Meyer Solutions, Fuller Brush and Pioneer Pet Products.
