HIRI 2019 Home Improvement Insights Summit

Each year, hundreds of home improvement industry experts and professionals gather to network, share research and explore upcoming trends and forecasts at the Home Improvement Research Institute (HIRI) Insights Summit. “HIRI has evolved over the last three to five years with good leadership,” said Diane Walsh, vice president of market development and sales at ShurTech and HIRI president. “This year’s conference promises to be the best yet.”

Content delivered at September’s HIRI Insights Summit will fall under three pillars:

  1. Customers
  2. Channels
  3. Economy-market dynamics


“Speakers and presentations are all very focused on what people want to learn about the home improvement industry,” Walsh said. “Everyone is sure to walk away with information to help strategies and grow their business.”

If you’re planning to attend the Summit, Walsh advises you to take advantage of every aspect. “Attend all of the sessions and spend time networking to meet other industry leaders. Be sure to visit the vendors that provide market research and strategy assistance. Try to meet as many people as possible to round out your knowledge and make connections.”

The HIRI Insights Summit provides abundant opportunities to do just that.

“Every year I look forward to engaging with the thought leaders in our industry at the HIRI Insights Summit,” said Ian Van Heyst, FirstService Brands’ senior director of information security and risk management and HIRI vice president. “There is always something of value to take away and to move our businesses forward.”
