With more than 62,000 attendees, The International Home and Housewares show stands as the largest housewares only fair in the world. At this year’s show our Senior Trend Strategist Naomi Pollard will be presenting on Saturday, March 2nd at 12:30pm in the Innovation Theater.

“Some of the key themes that I’ll cover will include the future of disposability, considered shopping behaviours and how the rise of Instagram is influencing even the most functional product categories.” Naomi Pollard, Trend Bible

Naomi will be sharing the big shifts in consumer lifestyles, attitudes and behaviours that are influencing design for the home and how these result in colour and design trends for 2020. These trends will provide valuable foresight for anyone involved in producing, selling or marketing products for the home, providing inspiration for colour, material, shape and pattern as well as functionality.

“It’s been a couple of years since I last presented at the Theatre, so I’m looking forward to hearing some inspiring opinions and presentations again this year. I’m always keen to hear from designers about the consumer problems and solutions that they have identified.”

You can read a full interview with Naomi over on the show’s blog.

Naomi’s trend briefing takes place on Saturday, March 2nd at 12:30pm in the Innovation Theater.

Overall a great day which involved getting everyone's thoughts, ideas and reservations down on paper. I am looking forward to seeing how this information will be overlaid with the vital trend insights we need to drive new product development and long-term business growth.
