The trade show, hosted by The International Housewares Association (IHA), features thousands of products that span the home and housewares sectors. As time passes, so will key show and editorial opportunities. Check out our list below of upcoming deadlines regarding The Inspired Home Show 2022 so you can maximize your show experience.
First and foremost, if your brand has not already registered for the event, which is set to take place in Chicago, IL, March 5-7 2022, make sure you do so here at your earliest convenience to reserve your space as an exhibitor.
News media that covers IHA are always looking for new products! Entering your new product listings through your Connect 365 portal is an optimum way for news media and buyers to find your new products debuting at the show. It is recommended to enter by February 11 for maximum visibility.
Online Press Kits
Exhibitors can conveniently upload press kits for free through IHA’s online press room! Once uploaded (as a Word document, jpeg, pdf, png, or gif file), it will be viewable by all news media registered to attend this year’s show. To get as much exposure with the media as possible, exhibitors can upload their digital kits and send paper or digital kits to the Show News Center for the media to take. The sooner you upload your kit, the more exposure possible. The final deadline to submit press kits is March 4.
In-Booth Special Events
If your exhibition features a celebrity appearance, product demonstration, or special media event, consider including it in your listing on Connect 365, the online show directory. The news media thrives on unique opportunities and available in mid-February, exhibitors can invite the media to their booths using the pre-show media registration list.
