The Home Improvement Research Institute's (HIRI) Industry Summit, Oct. 19 to 20 in Chicago, will include a presentation on building better retailer partnerships.
Retail Solutions CEO Jonathan Golovin is a new addition to the slate of presenters at the summit.
Dr. Golovin's presentation, titled "Becoming the Better Supplier – How to Build More Effective Retailer Partnerships," will examine the questions: How do retailers define the concept of “best suppliers”? And why do some suppliers seem to have an disproportionate share of promotions, assortments and shelf space?
Using real-life examples and case studies, Dr. Golovin will illustrate how every company can emulate these best practices to at least level the playing field -- and to often start developing the foundation of competitive differentiation at retail.
Described by HIRI as the "premier conference for information on the industry," the two-day summit will take place at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza.
HIRI is the home improvement industry’s leading source for original research. It is an independent, not-for-profit membership organization comprised of more than 80 forward-thinking companies.
