Digitalisation, smart home and the Summit in DIY International 3/2017

Digitalisation in trade and industry is the main topic of the current issue of DIY International.

Digitalisation in trade and industry is the main topic of the current issue of DIY International.

The current edition of the specialist journal DIY International is out now with a main topic on digitalisation in trade and industry. It includes reports on how trading companies like Lowe's in the USA, Stroitelny Dvor in Russland, Coop in Switzerland or Brico direct in Tunisia deal with this topic; Hamberger Flooring and FN Neuhofer Holz have their say from the point of view of the manufacturer. In keeping with the theme, an assortment topic looks at products and concepts for the smart home and garden and presents a European market study on this topic as well as solutions by Hozelock, Chamberlain, Osram and BeeWi.

And of course, what would DIY International 3/2017 be without a major look back at the 5th Global DIY Summit with text and pictures? And even more pictures are available here at in the Galleries section.
