About the Event

As the Home Improvement Industry’s only face-to-face online retail event, the eRetailer Summit is uniquely positioned to bring together key partners in online retail—Retailers, Distributors and Manufacturers who are specifically and distinctly interested in learning about and increasing sales of home improvement products.

The eRetailer Summit is not about pitching a product or a suite of products. It’s about understanding the online retail world – it’s philosophy and business model first from the eRetailer’s perspective – their company’s goals, strategies and what they are looking for in a channel partnership.

It’s also about sharing information, data & analytics, trends and best practices to help all those along the home Improvement distribution channel achieve success.


The Home Improvement eRetailer Summit is an opportunity to connect manufacturers, distributors, brick and mortar and online retailers who are specifically interested in increasing online sales of home improvement products through collaboration and partnerships.

In addition, this conference is designed to help educate the entire home improvement distribution channel more about the online retail industry. It is designed as a mutually beneficial educational forum for retailers, distributors and manufacturers.

Understanding how to use the Internet as a retail distribution channel is not easy, particularly in the home improvement market, where bricks and mortar have long been the standard bearer of successful retail selling. E-commerce can be very different from the traditional way home improvement suppliers go to market. The eRetailers participating in this summit will share how they optimize their distinct online model and will help suppliers understand the profile of the type of supplier partnerships that are successful in their e-tail environment.

In a curated educational setting, crafted by an advisory council, attendees will participate in educational tracks that focus on clarifying some of the top issues faced by online retail today. Attendees will be able to develop partnerships through networking and create sustainable and profitable business relationships. All of these valuable benefits are integrated within a vetted environment.

This is an intimate gathering.
