Webinar | Digital Strategy: The Next Tool in UK Building Products Distribution

COVID-19 has had a profound effect on the building products sector, forcing changes to distribution strategies and contractor behaviours, and accelerating long-term trends towards a digital future.

As businesses adjust to new safety requirements and customer preferences, building products distributors are faced with a series of opportunities and threats that will determine their future market position and performance.

To understand the operational and strategic impact of the emerging trends, Lincoln International & L.E.K. Consulting partnered to share insights on today’s most pressing questions:

  • How have distributors performed since lockdown and what does the immediate future hold?
  • How is Government likely to act to stimulate the sector?
  • What is the impact of digital and online specialists on traditional distributor business models?
  • What key characteristics will help distributors succeed?
