CHICAGO — Leading hardware stores and building supply dealers across the country have at least one thing in common — they think about the future. Advancing those thoughts is a priority for the upcoming 2019 Path to Purchase Expo (P2PX).

From digital transformation to customer centricity, P2PX keynote speaker Brendan Witcher will offer a roadmap. Witcher, a principal analyst with market research company Forrester, will provide attendees of the 2019 Path to Purchase Expo (P2PX) will discuss how companies can evolve for the future when he delivers P2PX’s closing keynote.

Keeping the needs of consumers in mind, along with the competitive market, Witcher will tackle:

  • What drives strategic digital transformation, and what must be addressed to achieve success?
