International Home + Housewares Show 2011

Welcome to our home at the International Home + Housewares Show 2011!

The show sold out this year and opened its doors in Chicago on Sunday to 60,000 attendees. We’re one of 2,000 exhibitors from over 35 countries. Fifteen thousand buyers from the U.S. alone are joined by 6,000 international buyers from 100 countries on six continents (maybe next year there’ll be a buyer from Antarctica).

It’s a heart-racing temporary city filled with colorful booths, packed with the newest trend-setting gadgets and iconic products, all in a blur of action.

The show ends tomorrow, on Mardi Gras this year, and in honor of the holiday New Orleans made famous we’ll be serving Bourbon Vanilla French Toast Sticks with Maple Whipped Cream for breakfast, Mini Shrimp Po’ Boys  – with wild Gulf shrimp – Creole Dressed Slaw at lunch, and sparkling drinks from our hot new Twist ‘n Sparkle all day.

We’ll demo how to dispense the French toast batter from our Gourmet Whip, the maple whipped cream from the Easy Whip, the shrimp tempura-like batter from a Gourmet Whip again, and the Creole dressing from our Creative Whip.

If you’re at the show please come by and see us at Booth S1224!
