The 8th Global DIY Summit in Copenhagen last week was rated extremely positively by the participants. Via the survey and voting tool of the conference app, 81 per cent gave the verdict "very good" or "excellent", while another 18 per cent thought the meeting of the global home improvement industry was "good".
The organisers Edra/Ghin and Hima – the international trade and manufacturers' associations – have released some data from the voting tool. This year, for example, 31 per cent of the participants came from the trade and 55 per cent from manufacturing companies. A relatively large proportion of 15 per cent were from organisations not entirely involved in DIY, such as universities, consultants or trade associations. Almost three quarters (72 per cent) of the approximately 900 participants were men.
