IHA Begins Giveaways on Social Media

CHICAGO-The International Housewares Association has begun a giveaway program on its Facebook and Twitter pages, where consumers will be able to register to win products from International Home + Housewares Show exhibitors every week through the start of the Housewares Show in March.

Consumers can enter by either commenting on the status announcing the giveaway on the IHA Facebook page or mentioning @HousewaresShow and a specific hashtag -- for the first giveaway with Hutzler Mfg., for example, the hashtag is #IHAHutzler -- on Twitter. Each contest will begin on a Wednesday and end the following Monday (with the exception of the week of Dec. 19, which will run from Monday, Dec. 19 through Thursday, Dec.22, because of the holiday).

Each prize package will be at least $25 in value. The first giveaway, from long-time Housewares Show exhibitor Hutzler Mfg., which has the Hutzler, Gourmac, Lopol and Progressus brands, includes an onion saver, tomato saver, berry box, egg scrambler and a set of six melamine mini utensils in persimmon orange. After Hutzler, giveaways with Emjoi and California Clock Co. were planned for this month. The giveaways would then resume in the new year. There will be a new giveaway contest every week up through the start of the show.
