The Networking Event for the Home Improvement Industry

A Global congress bringing together +1100 top managers from +50 countries around the world

The 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).

The main theme of the congress this year is DIY EVOLUTION: Designing the Future Together. We have yet to realize just how rapid and profound the current digital revolution is. The scale and effect of the implications for consumers and businesses is both exhilarating and daunting. Disruptive technologies and new business models are creating change and transforming the economy at an unprecedented and unpredictable pace that may outpace our ability to adapt to it unless we collaborate.

In just a few years, companies like Facebook, AirBnB, Tesla, Amazon, Uber have changed the face of the global economy. The rules of business have changed forever. Everyday thousands of start-ups are disrupting old business models, taking on the staid industrial groups and winning. From retail to the industries, businesses operating in traditional models have to evolve and embrace the rapid advances of core digital technologies in order to stay relevant.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to embrace disruption and reshape the future of your business. Save your place now and join us on 5-7 June 2019 in Dublin!
