Business platform instead of big box?

What does it mean for the DIY store industry, that big box retail stores are losing their relevance? And how can the DIY store industry make use of the concept of business platforms which is becoming more popular in trade? These questions will be raised at the 5th Global DIY Summit, which is taking place on 8 - 9 June in the German capital Berlin. At the same time, the two international retail and manufacturer associations Edra/Ghin and Fediyma point out that the early bird offer ends on 15 March 2017.
