The Windy City Gift Show will provide the perfect meeting point for the industry.

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.
