A toast to the first major
international housewares show
of the season! The International
Housewares Association, along with
sponsor Whitford, hosted its annual
party at Ambiente 2012 at the Messe-Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany.
Anne Willis of Whitford has graciously
sponsored the wine for many years
– she selects some varieties on her
travels and brings them to Ambiente
for the IHA Reception. It’s a wonderful event for networking and talking
about the innovations at the show,
as well as gearing everyone up for
the International Home + Housewares Show in March.
