2017 Trade show Opportunities

Many national tradeshows provide a positive environment to cultivate relationships with companies interested in new product ideas. As this New Year begins, inventors may want to consider attending any of the inventor-friendly tradeshows to gain more exposure and opportunities for their invention.

Highlighted below are three of the most prestigious events which InventionHome works with throughout the year. A more comprehensive listing can be found on our website at http://blog.inventionhome.com/tradeshows/.

International Home + Housewares Show

The housewares industry’s premier tradeshow event is fast approaching! On March 18-21, the major housewares’ executives will gather in Chicago to buy and sell the newest consumer lifestyle products for all areas of the home. These executives will also be on the lookout for the latest product trends and innovations on display in the “Inventors Corner” sponsored by Invention Home.

National Hardware Show

The National Hardware Show held annually in Las Vegas is the most popular event for learning, sourcing and trading in the $343 billion US home improvement and DIY markets. The “Inventors Spotlight” has become one of the most popular destinations at this 3-day event, which takes place this year from May 9-11. Inventors with products in these categories may want to consider participating: hardware and tools; lawn, garden and outdoor living; plumbing and electrical; paint and accessories; housewares; tailgate, backyard and BBQ.
