4 Reasons to Visit E-Power Marketing at This Year's International Home + Housewares Show
If you work in the home and housewares industry you're probably familiar with the International Home + Housewares Show (IHHS) held every March at Chicago's McCormick Place, the largest convention center in North America. The show boasts four massive expos housing over 2,000 exhibitors from across the world.
This four day event is put on by the International Housewares Association (IHA), an organization whose primary goal is to bring buyers and sellers together to continue the growth of the home and housewares industry.
This brings us to where we fit in. For nearly two decades (since 2000) E-Power Marketing has been the trusted digital marketing partner of IHA. Because of our work with IHA, they invite us to attend IHHS to staff the Social Media + Digital Marketing Center.
Our seventeen years of experience in the home and housewares industry has given us the opportunity to truly understand the digital landscape for housewares brands, and what it takes to be successful online in an age where consumers have more ways to research and gain information on brands and their products than ever before.
So where can you find E-Power at the show?
E-Power Marketing will be stationed at the Social Media + Digital Marketing Center located in the Grand Concourse lobby. The Grand Concourse Lobby is located at the entrace of the North Building, Level 3 where the clean + contain and discover design expos are located.
