70th Canada Night in Chicago
It was another amazing turn-out of Canadian vendors and retailers at the 70th Canada Night reception on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the InterContinental Hotel in Chicago. 

This long-running tradition brings the Canadian housewares industry, in town for the International Home+Housewares Show, together for a few hours of friendly conversation, tasty appetizers, beverages and live music.  The room remained packed for practically the full evening.

How to Succeed at Product Development Seminar
As part of the CHHMA partnership with the Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC), several CHHMA members attended a seminar on the morning of February 20, 2019 at a SEEC facility in downtown Toronto.

The speaker was Gerry Lubanszky, a SEEC course instructor and President of GOTO Market Solutions Ltd., a firm helping companies develop new product and new business strategies. 

During the seminar, Gerry discussed the innovation process and what makes a product truly innovative and why new products often fail.  He reviewed the key factors and types of companies that drive successful new product development and how organizations can best structure and integrate their sales and marketing efforts for success.


Winning in Today's Canadian Ecommerce Landscape Seminar
A number of CHHMA members braved the weather on February 12, 2019 to attend an excellent presentation on the status of Ecommerce in Canada at the Corporate Event Centre at CHSI in Mississauga.  The event was another CHHMA-COPA joint event so a number of COPA members were also in attendance as were some key executives from Canadian Tire and Home Hardware.

The presenter was Jack O'Leary, a senior analyst out of Boston with Edge by Ascential (formerly PlanetRetail RNG), an organization that the association has partnered with to conduct a number of seminars & webinars and provide reports for our members on a number of retail and ecommerce topics. 

Mr. O'Leary spoke about the key drivers impacting Ecommerce in general and then focused in on Canada highlighting the unique dynamics and external factors in play in our country.
