The 24th Annual Hardlines Conference is coming up soon on November 13 & 14th at the Kingbridge Centre in King City, Ontario. This new location is easily accessible from downtown Toronto and the airport with a remote “think tank vibe.”

The two action-packed days offer you a chance to hear from experts from various retail backgrounds as they share their experiences and insights on where home improvement is heading.  In addition, the event offers lots of opportunities to network with leaders from the North American home improvement industry.

Outstanding Retailer Awards (ORA’s)

Also, don’t forget about the Outstanding Retailer Awards (ORA’s), the industry’s only national awards program dedicated to celebrating the achievements of hardware, home improvement and building supply dealers in Canada.  Over its 26-year history, the program has honoured more than 160 retailers.

The awards will be handed out at a Gala Dinner at the Kingbridge Centre on November 13 at 5:30 pm following the first day of the Hardlines Conference.
