Here at ChiIL Mama, it's been our pleasure to cover The International Home and Housewares Show (IHHS) every year since 2012.
It's not open to the public, so I'm happy to be the eyes and ears for my readers. IHHS is the premiere resource for cutting edge trends, new releases, products still in development, and exciting new inventions. I love to focus on eco-friendly products and useful gadgets that make life easier or problem solve. I also keep an eye out for kid friendly and pet friendly finds.

Some of my favorites are the new exhibitor event, Pantone's bright and beautiful displays of products featuring their colors of the year, and green living choices. As always, check back with ChiIL Mama year round for my product reviews and news on my favorite finds from the IHHS show.
I do enjoy shooting our annual photo filled features on The International Home and Housewares Show (IHHS). This massive trade show takes up 3 entire halls of the massive McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago every year and is beyond impressive.
It's a great opportunity to meet chefs, enjoy tasty treats, and hear about hot new trends.
Special thanks to the following companies for sending review samples our way for features:
MFA No Drip Inverted Umbrella (Named Finalist for 2017 IHA Global Innovation Award)
Nude Food Movers
"As Seen on TV" gadgets
