It is the world’s major event where retailers and manufacturers from the home improvement and garden centre industry have the opportunity for an exchange of views of current and future developments within the global market. This event is being jointly hosted by the leading DIY professional organisations, EDRA (European DIY-Retail Association), HIMA (Home Improvement Manufacturers Association), and ghin (Global Home Improvement Network).
Session title: DIY in 2022: Decision making when instability is the only constant
Session description: Lockdowns forced us to rethink go-to-market strategy around the purpose and vulnerability of stores. Failed parts, waiting lists and bottlenecks forced us to rethink supply strategy and what “reliable” means. Pandemic DIY novices forced us to rethink product, service, sales and retention strategy.
Demand drivers behind recent growth (and growth pains) are still there, but 2022 disruption factors include war in Europe, global inflation rates not experienced in generations, a cost of living crisis, and sustainability rising in our social consciousness, adorned by the visible teeth of incoming regulation.
What strategies do we need to rethink this time?
Date and time of the EMI session: 2 September 2022, 10.50-11.15 GMT
