An Emphasis on Growth

The 2018 NRHA State of Independents Conference will be held Dec. 6 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago.

This year’s conference will focus on the ways retailers can take their business to new heights and watch it grow. Learn how successful retailers source new products and what channel partners can do to help. Discover high-performing categories and unique niches that have helped retailers boost sales. Attendees can also learn how retailers are expanding their operations to meet customer demand.

Over the course of the daylong conference, NRHA executive vice president Dan Tratensek will present the State of the Industry Report, which includes original research and market analysis that details how the economy is impacting independent home improvement retailers.

The conference will also include two separate panel discussions with retailers, providing their insights on performance and growth forecasts and their top category growth areas.
