HouseHold Expo is the biggest exhibition of housewares in Russia

International exhibition HouseHold Expo is the only B2B exhibition on the territory of Russia which best represents the Russian market of housewares, goods for country life, gifts and interior objects. The exposition consists of such exhibitions as HouseHold Expo, Stylish Home, Christmas Box. Podarki and Dacha Outdoor.

The main goal of the exhibition is to fill the Russian consumer market with innovative and quality goods. In the autumn of 2017 the participants presented approximately 1 000 novelties to the Russian retail community. According to preliminary data, about 30% of exhibitors signed around 1500 contracts during the autumn exhibitions of 2017.

The exposition covers 20 000 sq.m. Each year over 700 companies from 16 countries take part in the exhibition, mainly – Russian and foreign manufacturers, wholesale companies and distributors.

The exhibition is attended by 16 000 professional visitors yearly, visitor geography comprises 45 countries (14% - CIS, 6% - other countries) and 81 regions of Russia (80%). Directors and business owners make up 38% of the total number of visitors, while 31% of visitors are category and purchasing managers.


Key sectors of the exhibition:

  • all kinds of tableware and table decorations
  • kitchen accessories and appliances

  • goods for country life and outdoor leisure
  • household goods and chemicals
  • home textiles

The exhibitions take place twice a year (trends and novelties of the autumn-winter and spring-summer seasons are introduced). Such frequency results from the demand of suppliers and purchasing agents and is connected to the necessity of product range renewal.
