GAWDA invites members to attend a concentrated educational programme focused on the unique needs of the industrial wholesale distribution industry.

Known worldwide for excellence in education, the University of Innovative Distribution (UID) is sponsored by leading industrial distribution professional associations, in cooperation with the Department of Technology, Leadership and Innovation of Purdue University. Working together, these groups take great pride in providing a superior learning experience.

At the conclusion of the programme, all attendees will receive an official Letter of Completion awarding 30 hours (3 CEUs – Continuing Education Units) for satisfactory completion of this four-day UID programme. These CEUs may be applied toward a Professional Certificate in Innovative Distribution. 

Some of the brand new courses scheduled for the event include: ‘Powered Productivity: Tech Tools You Need to Get Stuff Done’, ‘Effectively Working with Third Party Logistics Providers’ and ‘Goal Driven Process Improvement’. 

This year’s programme is taking place at the JW Marriott Indianapolis on the 10th-13th March. Registration is now open. Early bird discounts for GAWDA members are available until the 9th January.
