Inspired Home Show 2025 To Debut Travel Gear + Luggage Expo

The Inspired Home Show 2025 will introduce the Travel Gear + Luggage Expo presenting a wide selection of companies offering travel goods, the International Housewares Association (IHA) announced today.

The Inspired Home Show 2025, March 2-4 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, is set to feature more than 1,600 exhibitors in five expos in the McCormick Place North and South buildings.

The Travel Gear + Luggage Expo will be positioned in McCormick South near the top of the escalators leading into the hall from the Level 1 registration area. This positioning will give buyers easy and direct access to this new section of the show, according to IHA.

“The buying community, including key retailers on IHA’s Retail Advisory Council, has asked that the show broaden categories by including products that are industry adjacent,” said Derek Miller, IHA president & CEO.

Miller noted that more than 60 travel goods companies exhibited at The Inspired Home Show 2023 and had a very successful experience.

“After taking a one-year leave to explore other opportunities, travel goods exhibitors have indicated a desire to return to Chicago in order to meet the multitude of specialty and key buyers, and their GMMs and DMMs, who attend (The Inspired Home Show) each and every year,” Miller added. “With this renewed focus and heightened positioning of the travel goods category, and the show’s proven ability to attract key and international retailers, the Travel Gear + Luggage Expo is expected to more than double in size in 2025 from what we had in 2023.”

IHA’s trade publication, HomePage News, will broaden its coverage to include travel goods on a frequent and ongoing basis. This effort will bring travel goods company, brand and new product news to the industry on a daily basis throughout the year, Miller said.

Travel goods exhibitors are also invited to participate in IHA’s full range of member services, including industry education, government affairs, executive education and international services, including ocean freight programs and trade missions. More information on the many member services offered can be found on IHA’s website at Housewares.org.
