HSN in Search of “American Dreams” Products at Housewares Show
March 13, 2017,
NEW YORK—HSN will host an all-day product search at the International Home + Housewares Show March 18 as part of its American Dreams initiative designed to cultivate entrepreneurs and introduce innovative products to the marketplace.
Senior executives from HSN will be joined by entrepreneur Marc Portney, host of Science Channel’s All American Makers, to judge submissions from registered entrepreneurs across different categories. Each entrepreneur will have three minutes to showcase his or her product during a two-hour block before a panel of retail, design, manufacturing and consumer technology specialists. The winning product will have a chance to appear on HSN.
The day, scheduled between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., will be divided into three categories: culinary, home and miscellaneous.
HSN is anticipating approximately 50 entrepreneurs to pitch their products. Those who would like to participate can e-mail email AmericanDreams@hsn.com to submit their product for consideration; they must include “Housewares Show Product Search” in the subject line.
The event will take place at McCormick Center’s North Building, in Room N126.
