The Home Improvement Research Institute (HIRI) has announced its upcoming 2013 HIRI Fall Conference, with this year's theme set to focus on "Changing Home Improvement Attitudes & Behaviors."
Speakers will discuss topics such as forward-looking consumer behaviors, economic trends and the home improvement market, targeting various demographics, the impact of Durables on the home improvement landscape, future housing demand, as well as changing attitudes toward the home and price-driven shopping behavior.
A break for attendees to network, eat lunch and visit sponsor tables will be provided. Additionally, one attendee will walk away with a free tablet computer during a end of day giveaway.
The conference will take place at the Crowne Plaza at Chicago O'Hare Hotel and Conference Center on Oct. 16, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
