What’s On Tap at the NRHA All-Industry Conference

This year, the NRHA All-Industry Conference focuses on industry disrupters, people who are pushing the boundaries of the home improvement industry and finding new paths to success.

“The theme is Industry Disrupters, which we thought was appropriate before the pandemic disrupted literally every aspect of our lives. Now it’s even more relevant,” says NHPA (formerly NRHA) executive vice president Dan Tratensek.

The event will feature four days of engaging, informative presentations to help every member of the home improvement industry excel, including two keynote speeches from Do it Best president and CEO Dan Starr and Kevin Hancock, president and CEO of Hancock Lumber.

  • KEYNOTE: How Independents Are Still Disrupting, a Conversation With Dan Starr
    Do it Best president and CEO Dan Starr talks with NRHA executive vice president Dan Tratensek about the future of the industry and the opportunities that are available for independents to innovate, compete and win in their markets. In this exclusive presentation, attendees will understand the value that the independent model brings to the industry and how the most successful retailers stay relevant through disruption.
    Monday, Oct. 12, 12:00 p.m.-12:45 p.m. EST
  • KEYNOTE: Employees First: Disrupting Assumptions for More Loyal Customers and Stronger Sales
    Hancock Lumber president and CEO Kevin Hancock discusses the social and economic benefits of creating an employee-centric company. The first mission of work should be enhancing the lives of the people who do it.

In this presentation, Hancock revisits and reclassifies several long-standing assumptions about business.
