We are so excited to announce h+h americas 2024 will be bigger and better than ever in its third year. Due to exhibitor demand we’ve added 30% more exhibitor space to the showroom floor. The Indie Untangled Pavilion will be larger in 2024 than in previous years—and we’re only one space away from completely selling out that space! If as a craft business you previously questioned whether h+h americas was suitable for your business, you can rest assured: h+h americas is for you.

We are your spring event. We encourage you to preview the growing list of fabric, fiber, and craft businesses who have already signed on for h+h americas 2024. You can also start browsing the floor plan to bookmark exhibitors you don’t want to miss. 

The program for h+h americas 2024 continues to grow. Next year our master program will expand to include 8 master classes (increased from 4), with additional available seats for our business classes. Based on the feedback we’ve received from attendees and exhibitors, we’re including new relevant topics such as prompt engineering and generative AI. 

From Abby Glassenberg, President and Co-Founder of Craft Industry Alliance:

“We are very excited to be expanding our Masterclass program in 2024. Building on the success of our Masterclasses last year (every single one was fully booked and several had waitlists!), we are thrilled to be offering an even wider selection of these 2.5 hour intensive the day before the show opens. In a class limited to just 15 students, you’ll have plenty of dedicated time with an expert instructor to actually get work done. This year’s topics will include beginner and advance Shopify setup and help, optimizing your Etsy shop, creating video, merchandising, and more! We can’t wait to share all the details in January.”

Unlike previous years, we’re strongly encouraging attendees and exhibitors to arrive early. While the show starts on Wednesday, May 1, we’ve created exciting new events for Tuesday, April 30th. Tuesday will include a Content Creator Summit with opportunities for networking, education, and interactive sessions. The event begins with lunch and will finish with a cocktail party. That evening we will also host a product preview night (similar to Schoolhouse). Plans for Tuesday continue to evolve, so stay tuned for details on more classes and events forthcoming!

Make sure you’ve completed your exhibitor registration and secured your hotel and travel accommodations. We’ve also updated the Promotional Tools available on our website so you can begin to promote your presence at the show with images like the one below.  

h+h americas will be the premier springtime event for craft businesses in 2024. We can confirm there will be greater coverage of quilting and fabric businesses, content creators and young entrepreneurs, fiber businesses and retailers, and complementary craft businesses related to tools, education, and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to increase visibility and awareness around your unique brand! Register as an exhibitor and stay tuned for attendee registration when it opens in the spring of 2024!
