eRetailer Summit Will Help Home Improvement
Sellers Build Their Online Sales

TRUMBULL, CT, August 9, 2017 — Home Depot’s online sales grew by 20 percent last year. But not every retailer, nor their suppliers, for that matter, can claim that kind of success. That’s why so many retailers and vendors are attending the Second Annual Home Improvement eRetailer Summit from September 13 to 15, 2017, at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla. This event will focus on helping the hardware and tools, home decor, paint, housewares, lawn and garden, furniture, outdoor living, and flooring sectors develop winning e-commerce strategies.

For suppliers looking to build business with top eRetailers, the event will offer face-to-face private meetings between eRetail decision-makers and suppliers. For everybody, the eRetailer Summit will feature amazing networking and learning, all in an intimate, business-ready setting.

Expansion of the Home Improvement eRetailer Summit’s mandate to serve sectors ranging from housewares to large furniture reflects the overwhelming dominance of online selling in every aspect of today’s shopping experience. The biggest challenge—delivery, whether in a timely fashion or to accommodate large, big ticket items—will be addressed at the Summit.

“Having attended the first Home Improvement eRetailer Summit, I saw first-hand the value of getting together with both vendors and other online sellers face to face,” said Elizabeth Ragone, Senior VP, Direct to Consumer for Lenox, a leading seller of luxury tableware and gifts. “It was a valuable, business-building experience—one that I am happy to return to this year as one of the event’s keynote speakers.”

Along with a host of top e-commerce experts, this year’s speaker lineup will feature a powerful keynote by Alyssa Steele, Divisional Merchandise Manager-Home and Garden for eBay.

Retailers looking to understand the e-commerce space and vendors who wish to make real connections with leading eRetail decision makers will find this ground-breaking forum a way to meet, share ideas, and develop concrete strategies for growing online sales. (For more information, go to
