⇒"As a general manager, it is important for me to have knowledge in all areas of distribution. It is a great environment for learning and networking.” - Stewart Distribution attendee

⇒"The UID is an excellent environment to learn, network and expand my overall distribution base of knowledge. I've met distributors from around the world who distribute everything from flowers to lumber to HVAC equipment. The competition and struggles are real in each of these channels of distribution. We all can relate to that.” - Merchants Grocery Co. attendee
