I had a terrific time at Live In NYC: Housewares Summer Preview which was given by the International Housewares Association at the Metropolitan Pavilion recently.
More than 35 companies and brands were on hand to show products to lifestyle press. There was a nice blend of well-known brands and first-time event exhibitors. All in all, there were 130 products on display.
Participating exhibitors and brands included: Angie’s Tables; Aveine; Bous (King Jim, Takenaka); Chantal Corp; The Cookware Co. (Red Volcano, Bobby Flay x GreenPan, GreenLife, Blue Diamond); Core Home (Manna, Maison De Base, Brooklyn Steel); Crane USA; Dexas International; E-Cloth; Ekco Brands (Vita); Fissler America; Fit & Fresh; Freshlink Product Development, LLC dba PREPARA; GlenLois; Hamilton Beach (CHI, Clorox, Wolf Gourmet); Henry Wang Travel Mug; Jura; Klean Kanteen; Lifetime Brands (Built & Rabbit); Lumber Mart Sales Sdn Bhd (Backley); Madesmart; Mastrad; NewAir; Pakt; PantryChic, a division of Nik of Time; Plum; Porland Porselen; Proctor Silex; Tuckahoe Hardwoods; Via Deco Home; Wow Gear; Zavor; Zip Top; and Zojirushi America.
