Global DIY Summit expected to be “most successful ever”

Published: 10 January 2017 - Jenny Wonnacott

This year's Global DIY Summit, which will take place in Berlin on June 8 – 9, is expected to be the “most successful home improvement congress ever organised” with several top names from the industry having already booked their place.

This year's theme is “A New Era: A Glimpse into the Future of Home Improvement.” Top speakers from the industry and beyond promise to give a comprehensive overview of the “profound changes the global economy has experienced in the past months.” This will mark the fifth year of EDRA and Fediyma's global summits.

Delegates can expect to increase their knowledge on the new economy based on ICT, the best paths to become a successful digital player with support from the best startups, the latest figures of the global DIY markets and the impact the new world geopolitics will have on them.
