The first Home Improvement eRetailer Summit will be held October 26 to 28, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

For the first time ever, there will be a conference exclusively dedicated to e-commerce in the home improvement industry.The Home Improvement eRetailer Summit is a top-level conference for industry-leading retailers doing business online. The event will provide a forum for them to collaborate with progressive vendors and distributors to develop new partnerships and new strategies for success. The congress will be held October 26 to 28, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Over a day and a half, a small, select group of e-retail executives and buyers will develop their business ambitions and strategies with a group of suppliers. The event will combine one-on-one meetings. Understanding and learning directly from the e-retailers; leading keynote speakers; seminars clarifying confusing topics; and true networking in an intimate setting - that's what the organisers are planning for the conference.

"In this industry, e-retailers are moving together to make home improvement online a more powerful presence," says Sonya Ruff Jarvis, Manager, Jarvis Consultants, who is mounting the event in partnership with the Canadian trade magazine Hardlines. "By bringing together a focused group of high-caliber retailers interested in pursuing and increasing their online product sell, we're creating an environment for these retail leaders to share their goals for increasing online sales with select supplier partners."
