The 6th Global DIY Summit on 13 and 14 June in Barcelona is presented under the motto "DIY Next - Reinventing our industry". The programme is split into five main sessions: 1) Global Economic and Political Overview, 2) Challenges for a New Kind of Cooperation - Facing the Future Together, 3) The DIY Next Generation - Disrupting our Industry, 4) Market Update - Latest Industry Figures, 5) Home Improvement around the World.

Whereby the organisers draw attention to two particular highlights: first, a panel discussion between retailers and manufacturers will be organised on the first event's day. Top industry leaders like Véronique Laury (Kingfisher), Sylvain Prud'homme (Lowe's), Jeffrey Lavers (3M), Henning von Boxberg (Bosch), among other prominent speakers, will discuss on a new kind of cooperation within the industry.

The second announced highlight is the third session named "The DIY Next Generation - Disrupting our Industry". In this block will be presented the latest trends worldwide in retail and the new technologies.
Two special guests have been announced for the second day. The first one is Christian Raisson, co-founder from ManoMano in France. Also, Ignacio Sánchez, Managing Director from Leroy Merlin in Spain, will speak about the Spanish recovery after the economic recession in 2008.
