Home + Housewares Galore!

McCormick Place_2016Juniors and Seniors, thirty-nine Home Products students in all, spend 2 full days exploring the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, Illinois earlier this month.

The students took on the role of young professionals as they walked the halls researching product categories and networking with industry professionals. From dust pans to Le Creuset, students versed themselves in the manufacturing processes and marketing of top brands.

Not all business, Prof Brogna makes sure to get in a little “Chicago culture”. A walk through the windy city, stopping at Bloomingdales and Macy’s, the Chicago River, and on to Millennium Park for group selfies at the “bean,”.

Oh, and of course a slice of Chicago deep dish pizza!
