Join as a Supplier

NBMDA is the premier association for wholesale distributors and suppliers, representing over 125 operating firms and 900 distribution centers in North America. These distributor decision-makers primarily participate in NBMDA to interact with their distributor peers and supplier trading partners. They attend our events in order to source new products and deepen their supplier relationships.

In a Word... It's ACCESS

We unite the leading distributors from across North America and provide access to them. If your strategy is to reach the market by selling through wholesale distributors, active participation in NBMDA is a cost-effective and time-efficient means of building distributor relations, gaining knowledge about distribution needs and ultimately growing your distributor sales.

Developing strong relationships with your distribution partners and fully understanding their needs today as well as in the coming years is vital to your success. Communication is key. Information is invaluable. Personally getting to know the players in the distribution channel will make a significant impact on your business.

Annual Convention & Tabletop Networking Forum

The most highly anticipated and effective means of directly tapping into the community of NBMDA distributors is to participate in the Annual Convention & Tabletop Business Session held each fall. As NBMDA's flagship event, the convention features countless opportunities for suppliers to efficiently interact with a large number of distributor members, all in one setting.

This is not a trade show! Instead, we develop an environment which is conducive to executive interchange between current and potential trading partners.
