Where Best-in-Class Distributors Create the Future
THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN WITH LEADERS FROM DIVERSE WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION LINES OF TRADE TO DISCUSS CURRENT INDUSTRY CHALLENGES AND LEARN FROM OTHERS’ SUCCESSES.
Our theme is “Navigating the Seas of Disruption,” which speaks to the challenges distributors face today: a tough economy, advancing technology, rapidly changing customer requirements, shifting demographics, and tight margins. Distributors are at a crossroads where they must take bold, innovative steps toward becoming more customer centric, leading to a maximization of the overall customer experience.
The NAW Executive Summit program will explore the many marketplace disrupters that are causing distributors to rethink their approach to technology, business processes, and, most importantly, the customer experience.
You will experience the best networking in the industry as you renew acquaintances and talk business with your peers from diverse distribution lines of trade and with other top experts in business, government, media, and wholesale distribution.
Add your own perspectives to the program during the very popular Discussion Roundtables. You’ll have the opportunity to network in a small-group setting with distribution peers from other lines of trade—who aren’t your competitors—and learn what’s working and what isn’t in the industry today. This is an ideal forum to exchange ideas and best practices so don’t miss this much talked about event!
Register and book your room by December 15 and you’ll receive a $100 room credit. Additional registrants from your company will receive a discount on their registration fees so bring other team members with you.
NOTE: If your company isn’t a wholesale distribution firm and isn’t an NAW member, you must become an NAW member to attend the NAW Executive Summit. To learn about joining NAW, please click here or contact Shawntay Charles at 202.872.0885 or email@example.com.
