The Homewares Show Awards program was launched in 2008 to recognize homewares/housewares manufacturers exhibiting at the Homewares Show who showcase the “Best of Class” in the category.
“Innovative, new products continue to be the lifeblood of new opportunities at retail,” said HomeWorld Business Editor-in-Chief Peter Giannetti. “HomeWorld Business shares the National Hardware Show’s commitment to helping retailers identify these new products and new opportunities.”
The award judges evaluated products based on aesthetics, differentiation/uniqueness, whether they fill consumer needs, overall value and packaging/merchandising support.
