Event: Global DIY Summit
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Date: 7th June 2016
Speaker: Filipe Oliveira, Senior Analyst, Euromonitor International
Global Home Improvement is a US$ 270bn strong market, second only to the Home Furnishings category within the Home & Garden universe. Whilst global sales have registered double digit period growth over the past five years, there are changes afoot in the macro-economic and socio-demographic world, which are shaping the face of the traditional Home Improvement consumer. What are these factors? How does the rise of ‘generation rent’ or the size of the average home in the industry’s largest markets impact sales? And what is happening to the retail space to adapt to the demands of the new ‘millennials’? Euromonitor’s presentation will answer these questions.
Join us at the Global DIY Summit, the world’s major event where retailers and manufacturers from the home improvement and garden centre industry have the opportunity to meet and discuss current and future developments within the global market. This congress is being jointly hosted by the two leading European DIY professional organisations, EDRA (European DIY-Retail Association) and fediyma(European Federation of DIY Manufacturers), as well as the first global representation of interest of DIY trade, ghin (Global Home Improvement Network).
