It is the world’s largest housewares-only fair in the world and features more than 2,200 exhibitors from 6 continents, attracting more than 62,000 attendees from over 125 countries. A barometer for the hottest consumer appliance and housewares trends and the culmination of the efforts of some of the world’s leading manufacturers, entrepreneurs, and artisans.

The future of housewares is moving quickly and THRIVE will be there to track changes in the industry, driven by the fast moving technologies of the Smart Home and the Internet of Things (IoT). The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), tells us that increased consumer enthusiasm for the Internet of Things and the adoption of new emerging technologies will drive the U.S. consumer technology industry to $292 billion in retail revenues this year. Connectivity is leading to unprecedented convergence and 2017’s IHHS will begin to tell us how much of this revenue is finding its way into the home and housewares category.

Jonathan Dalton and Trent Kahute will be there to support THRIVE’s clients, analyze emerging trends, and identify the latent customer needs.

We are in Chicago from March 17th through to the 20th. Please drop us a note at  [email protected] and we’ll set a time to get together.
