IWDC’s 2017 Sales & Purchasing Convention - Jackpot!


Indianapolis, IN – May 31, 2017 - 111 Member Companies and 97 Vendor Partners totaling over 550 participants bet on each other’s support and commitment to growth at IWDC’s annual convention held from May 23 – May 25 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This year’s gambling theme was a hit from Tuesday evening’s opening reception at South Point Casino to Thursday’s closing dinner and awards ceremony.

Members gained valuable product knowledge and growth strategies from Vendor sponsored presentations and Member led workshops. Relationships were strengthened during numerous networking events and IWDC’s traditional Vendor Show Specials brought significant savings to Members and multi-millions in sales to participating Vendors – a true “win-win”!

The IWDC is a cooperative, formed in 1994, which leverages the strengths of its independent welding distributor Members across North America. IWDC Member companies collectively represent over $2.2B in sales, serving a wide range of industries. The common denominator is that these industries look to them for industrial, specialty, and medical gases as well as related equipment, welding hardgoods, and consumables. End-use customers served by IWDC Members benefit from having the unparalleled expertise of a local Member distributor who has access to national-scale purchasing and marketing programs.
