What is the difference between an Approved Vendor and a Recommended Vendor?

Approved Vendors are those who, in the estimation of our Purchasing and Marketing Committees, are able to provide the superior products, services, and capabilities the IWDC and its Members both need and want.

After you become an Approved Vendor, you’ll have many opportunities to prove yourself worthy of further being designated a Recommended Vendor. Recommended Vendors are defined as those who go “above and beyond” in service to the IWDC and our Members. We’re confident that our Members have the best overall Recommended Vendor program in the entire industry. In addition to their exemplary services, our Recommended Vendors also support all IWDC functions and work with us as one North American entity representing $2 billion in retail sales.
