The Inspired Home Press Events

IHA’s Inspired Home Press Events provide consumer and trade editors with previews of new products from members and Show exhibitors. Two events are held each year in New York City. The International Home + Housewares Show Preview is held in January and features 60 exhibitors from all Show categories. In June, The Inspired Home: Housewares for the Holidays press event offers editors the opportunity to see new products for the second half of the year and the holiday selling season.

Each Press Event is a 4-hour tabletop exhibition providing a one-on-one opportunity to promote your products to the magazine and newspaper editors, bloggers and social media influencers who are interested in housewares products. Each company gets a 6-foot table on which to display up to four new products. No booth set-up is needed.


The two annual events are:
