The Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative welcomed 118 Member Companies and 99 Vendor Partners totaling over 500 participants as its annual convention held from May 17 - 19 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This year’s sports theme was a hit from Tuesday evening’s opening reception at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts, to Thursday’s End Zone dinner and awards ceremony.

IWDC’s traditional Vendor Show Specials brought significant savings to Members and multi-millions in sales to participating Vendors. Skills were honed and an extensive offense playbook was drilled at vendor-sponsored presentations and member-led workshops.
