IHHS 2009 provides retailers expert insights to survive challenging time
Story 13 - Preview

IN the midst of global economic difficulties, the 2009 edition of the International Home & Housewares Show (IHHS 2009) seeks to be relevant by offering valuable insights into the crisis and how to survive these challenging times.

To be held from March 22-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA, the show promises to examine consumer trends that emerged after the US recession broke out and reveal ways of taking advantage of the shifting consumer habits.

Derek Miller, international vicepresident of the International Housewares Association (IHA), the organiser of the annual event, says the show “will provide retailers with cutting-edge education
and expert insights that they can immediately use to meet the economic challenges” for 2009
and beyond.

“These economy-driven changes call for [speciality] retailers to be agile and adopt new strategies in order to anticipate and quickly capitalise on new consumer trends,” he says. The IHHS 2009 has lined up over 40 educational sessions that will give houseware and home retailers an understanding
of how consumers will behave this year.

Offering a glimpse of what will be discussed at the show, IHA says that among the consumer trends it sees for the near term is a tendency of the public to “retreat into nesting mode” — preferring to dine and entertain at home rather than eat out.
