The Inspired Home Influencer Conference brings lifestyle content creators together around education, peer networking and opportunity for interaction with more than 2,000 home + housewares product brands. Held during The Inspired Home Show, this Conference provides insight into the home + housewares industry, with a focus on how content creation can solve brand and retail challenges and growing influencers’ businesses through new connections and partnerships.
Every March, the International Housewares Association (IHA) holds the world’s largest home and housewares focused trade show in the world in Chicago: The Inspired Home Show (formerly the International Home + Housewares Show). The Show is closed to the public and has over 2,200 exhibitors from all over the world showcasing their products, including bestsellers and new products that aren’t available in stores yet – and they want to meet you!
The 2020 Show will be our 123rd Show! Over the years, the attendance of bloggers and influencers has continued to grow and in March 2019, we introduced The Inspired Home Influencer Conference, a new event that takes place on Friday before the Show opens. On Friday, March 13, the conference offers attendees a full day of education, speed networking with brands, and networking with other influencers. On Saturday, March 14-Tuesday, March 17, the Inspired Home Show takes place, and your ticket includes full media access to this event.
We understand that influencer and brand relationships are key to current marketing practices. We’re here to teach you the skills for innovative and successful brand partnerships and provide you an exclusive opportunity to meet with over 2,200 home and housewares brands at our Show. We hope to facilitate valuable connections to help you do business, drive brand partnership access for your website, introduce you to products that are new to your readership, and increase consumer awareness and interest in home products through your social influence.
Due to its popularity, the conference has been expanded and offers even more advanced education! Whether you’re new to our conference or joining us again, we can’t wait to show you everything we have in store!
