#1: You’ll learn how to boost your bottom line
Today’s U.S. distribution sector is going through a period of continued consolidation, and it is harder and harder for small and medium-sized importers & distributors to gain traction.

#2: You’ll get real insights into what works – and what doesn’t
For many importers & distributors, too much time is spent on trial and error, trying to figure out what really works. We’ve solved that problem for you by assembling a star-quality lineup of top speakers who have built entirely new businesses from scratch and helped to build up small distribution businesses into industry leaders. All of the speaker sessions that are included as part of the ABID Conference are geared around practical, everyday questions that you are likely facing as an importer or distributor.
