Houzz UK

Houzz is the leading platform for home renovation and design and its mission from day one has been to create the best experience for home design by delivering the best technology and products. Last year Houzz won "Best App" at the inaugural Google Play Awards, and this year it was included in CNBC's Disruptor 50 list, at number 6. 

40 million users visit Houzz every month, connecting with over 1.5 million home improvement professionals, across more than 60 trade categories. This community is collaborating together using technology to make the home renovation and design process better for everyone.

In this session, UK MD Marcus Hartwall will share how Houzz is constantly innovating and developing tools to help designers work smarter. Marcus will also share examples how technology is changing the way designers and homeowners are working together – you no longer need to rely on your local networks to secure projects. Houzz will also reveal the 3 finalists of the #SketchChallenge, a competition where the Houzz professional community were invited to solve a Houzz user's design dilemma using tools powered by technology. Voting will take place during the show with the winner announced on the last day of Decorex.
