Exhibitor Information:

Chicago is the third largest city in the US and the economic hub of the entire Midwest trading area. It’s an area  filled with small, independent stores, larger, innovative retailers (think Crate & Barrel!)  and home to major hardware buying offices.

Chicago is also consistently rated among the premier convention and destination cities. What’s more, the region is known in the industry for the strong partnerships and loyal business relationships between its large sales agencies and local buyers. These reps know and understand the specialized needs of their retail customers who, in turn, want to do business with  people they know and trust.

Because of its central location and easy accessibility, the Windy City Gift Show will be a magnet for these types of retailers from  throughout the region:


In addition, this show’s selection will be custom tailored to reflect the regional tastes and interests of the area - its strong seasonal business, great lakes and coastal towns, lodges and resorts.
