If you are looking for a better understanding of where the independent home improvement retailing market is headed, want to gain insight into how other independent retailers are performing or share your thoughts on channel partnerships, you’ll want to add the 2015 NRHA State of Independents Conference to your calendar.

This one-day conference, sponsored by the National Hardware Show®, is scheduled for Dec. 10 and will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago. The event is completely FREE for retailers to attend and will include breakfast, lunch and a cocktail reception. Preregistration is required.

During the conference, NRHA will share new, proprietary research about the overall performance and direction of the home improvement retailing market, discuss insights into the challenges and obstacles to growth that independents face and retailers’ thoughts on current relationships with distributors and manufacturers.

All attendees will receive a complete set of research and have opportunities to learn about the industry and network with leaders from all segments of the home improvement landscape.
