IHA’s Inspired Home Show has partnered with MarketBlast to source outside product innovation in the global housewares industry.
Product submissions for the Home + Housewares Marketplace Hunt can be made by inventors, suppliers, manufacturers, startup companies, professional developers, product engineers and innovators at MarketBlast’s website. Products will be reviewed by the International Housewares Association.
Chosen participants will be given the opportunity to pitch a shark-tank-like panel of professionals in The Inventors Corner of the March show and receive insights and feedback.
IHA’s Inspired Home Show 2022 is being held March 5-7 in Chicago. Each year, the Inspired Home Show brings together 60 inventors to a must-visit destination known as The Inventors Corner. This area showcases inventors’ freshest product creations.
Retail buyers, product developers, licensing executives, media representatives and many other industry professionals will converge on the Inventors Corner with the intent of discovering new products.
There are no upfront costs or commissions for new submitters to participate. To submit to the Inspired Home Show Innovation Hunt, create a MarketBlast account at marketblast.com, add your product to your private account, search the keyword “housewares” from the list of open hunts and submit.
