The International Housewares Association’s Inspired Home Show is a gathering where industry-leading home and housewares companies exhibit their products to existing and potential customers. Thousands of retail buyers visit the show yearly to discover new products and innovations, meet with current suppliers and find new partnership opportunities.

Newell Brands was one of 1,500 exhibitors on the show floor this year. Our sales team showcased over 35 product items across all three of our business segments. Buyers browsed products like our Contigo® Streeterville Tumblers and Sharpie® Creative Markers while also getting a sneak peek into upcoming launches from brands like Rubbermaid® and Oster®.

The focal point of the booth was the fully functioning kitchen and coffee bar, where Atlanta, GA-based Chef Austin Rocconi provided cooking demonstrations using Newell Brands products. From Calphalon® knives and pans to Rubbermaid food storage containers, Chef Rocconi showcased how Newell Brands products can be used in every step of the food preparation process.

Our Chief Customer Officer, Mike Hayes, who is a member of the International Housewares Association’s Board of Directors, shared about the event: “The Inspired Home Show is one of our most important events of the year, as it allows us to demonstrate the power of our brands and show our customers how our products light up everyday moments for our consumers. Thank you to our Newell team members who made it all possible!”

Our sales team departed the Inspired Home Show with a sense of achievement. Their meetings with over 90 customers opened doors for new distribution opportunities, partnerships and growth. We acknowledge their hard work in helping us achieve our goal of winning with customers and delighting our consumers.
