5th Global DIY Summit 2017
June 8, 2017 - June 9, 2017
Global DIY Summit is the world’s leading event for retailers and manufacturers from the home improvement and garden centre industry. It is a unique opportunity to exchange views on current and future developments within the global market with the industry’s leading players. The Summit is being jointly hosted by the two leading European DIY professional organisations, EDRA (European DIY-Retail Association) and fediyma (European Federation of DIY Manufacturers), and the first global representation of interest of DIY trade, ghin (Global Home Improvement Network).
This year the motto of the event is ‘A New Era – A Glimpse into the Future of Home Improvement’. The world in which we live is changing rapidly. In June 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU and since then the pound sterling has depreciated and brought instability to global markets. Moreover, economic consequences of Trump’s presidency could be enormous, and costly.
The digital transformation, the rise of new retail formats and global economic and political uncertainty are forcing DIY businesses around the world to embrace and adopt new innovative strategies to drive this ongoing disruption.
Join us in Berlin and meet leaders from the Home Improvement Industry. Together you will find a way to shape a new path in the marketplace for your organisation, to disrupt business as usual. The future of our industry is in your hands!
