eRetailer Summit Expands Housewares Program

The Second Annual Home Improvement eRetailer Summit will feature an expanded home product category scope including housewares and kitchenware, furniture and large appliances.

This networking event— set for September 13 to 15, 2017, at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando— is positioned to help companies in the hardware and tools, home decor, paint, housewares, lawn and garden, outdoor living, and flooring sectors develop winning e-commerce strategies.

This year’s eRetailer Summit will present a range of educational sessions for retailers and vendors to learn best practices from leaders in the online selling marketplace.

A keynote presentation by Alyssa Steele, DMM/Home and Garden for eBay, will lead the educational program. Peter Giannetti, editor-in-chief of HomeWorld Business will examine online sales fulfillment developments in a special Q&A session with Bob Careless, sales manager for the Home & Outdoor Division of D&H Distributing, a leading distributor and supply chain solutions provider for housewares and electronics.

Other presenters include: Steve Greenspon, CEO of Honey-Can-Do International; Al Meyers, of retail consultancy Kalypso; and Elizabeth Ragone, SVP, Direct to Consumer for Lenox.

“We are thrilled to expand the scope of the second annual Home Improvement eRetailer Summit,” said Sonya Ruff Jarvis, managing member of Jarvis Consultants and the event’s founder. “Online housewares sales are hot, and large home goods have historically been considered too large or unwieldy to sell online. We want to make sure retailers and vendors alike are on top of the trends affecting all these important categories.”
