Lock Search Group – A Participating Sponsor for the Hardlines Conference

The world’s thought leaders in home improvement will be gathered at the 23rd annual Hardlines Conference, which is being held November 13-14, 2018 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON. The conference is titled “The Power of Brand”, and it brings together leading retailers, suppliers, industry experts, and future thinkers.

The agenda is action-packed: talks from leading-edge marketers, brand builders, trend analysts, inventors, as well the presentation of the annual Outstanding Retailer Awards (ORA), are scheduled.

It’s an in-depth opportunity to explore what’s current and what’s ahead in one of the most dynamic (and profitable) areas of retailing. The developments in e-commerce, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and retail environments are attracting top talent- which is why the Lock Search team will be in attendance.

Paul Huffman, the Toronto-based Recruitment Consultant is also a hardware industry veteran, will be there, as will the Lock CEO, Richard Lock. As a participating sponsor of the mission, our mission is to see, learn, and connect so that we can continue to anticipate our clients’ needs. Our ongoing involvement has enabled us to locate and place high-performing individuals in sales, marketing and leadership positions throughout the home improvement industry.

“The Power of Brand” is a powerful idea, one that will inspire and benefit everyone who attends.
