Incentive Concepts LIVE Goes Onsite at The Inspired Home Show

Incentive rewards from Cangshan & LIVE demos with Chef D Malfi

For the latest Onsite@ episode of Incentive Concepts LIVE, we visited The Inspired Home Show for a one-of-a-kind showcase. This annual tradeshow brings together more than 50,000 home and housewares professionals to discover industry trends and top-tier products from both major and emerging brands. It was an incredible opportunity to spotlight several of our brand partners who are innovating in this space. The Inspired Home Show is the perfect opportunity to find incentive rewards for your employees, customers, and partners.

Viewers who tuned in live may have noticed a few technical difficulties during the broadcast. While it was our intent to produce the best possible viewing experience, we also acknowledge that there’s some unpredictability involved with live events and livestreaming technology. Luckily, we’ve pulled together some video content for two dynamic highlight reels that effectively capture the magic of our time at The Inspired Home Show.

Several brand partners take centerstage at The Inspired Home Show

Throughout the tradeshow, representatives from Incentive Concepts explored booths from Mr. Bar-B-Q, Legacy Companies, Nordic Ware, and Lodge. In addition to showing support for these longtime brand partners, we introduced customers to their groundbreaking product assortments and got a sneak peek at their newest releases.

There was plenty to get excited about, but some of the standout products included Lodge’s Yellowstone collection, cast iron sets, and wide array of griddles; Mr. BBQ’s specialty kits (like the Hershey’s S’mores Caddy) and its many high-end fire pits; Legacy Companies’ impressive range of Omega juicers; and Nordic Ware’s iconic Bundt® and cake pans.

Get a firsthand look at their displays in the highlight reel below.

Cangshan unveils bold, innovative HELENA, HAKU and KITA knife gift sets

Our reps also had the honor of spending time at the Cangshan Cutlery booth, a visually stunning presentation that featured several of the brand’s award-winning knife gift sets. During an extended segment, we demonstrated the versatility of Cangshan’s catalog, which includes knives for every kitchen need and skill level.

Many sets were highlighted, including three of Cangshan’s newest: the HELENA line, which boasts a lifetime warranty and was gifted to a lucky live attendee in a special post-episode giveaway; the HAKU series, defined by its Damascus Steel blade and African Blackwood handle; and the KITA collection, which has a beautiful blue G-10 fiberglass handle.

Viewers were then treated to a special segment with Chef D Malfi, a plant-based chef and health coach – and returning guest to Incentive Concepts LIVE. Based on ideas submitted by viewers prior to the episode, she used knives from the KITA and HELENA series to slice, dice, and chop ingredients for a veggie and hummus platter and a fruit salad with yogurt parfait. Both commenters whose ideas were chosen for Chef D Malfi’s demo won their own KITA and HAKU knives to prep their favorite snacks at home.

All in all, it was a fun, lively way to preview Cangshan’s latest releases, all of which are coming soon to the Incentive Concepts catalog. See our favorite moments from this segment below.
