The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW), which is the voice of the 8.1 trillion-dollar wholesale distribution industry, and employs more than 5 million U.S. workers, has announced that Vice President Mike Pence will keynote Executive Summit 2023, the premier industry event for wholesale-distribution, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2022, at the Fairmont, Washington, DC.
Vice President Pence will address North America’s leading class of distributors and share his insights on the global and domestic realities ahead for North American businesses, the U.S. economy, the supply chain and more. NAW’s Executive Summit is known in the industry as the most important and insightful event of the year; bringing together an incredible roster of distribution industry executives and service suppliers from all corners of the country to network, share best practices and innovate for the future.
“We could not be more honored to welcome Vice President Mike Pence to address distributors from across North America at Executive Summit 2023,” said NAW CEO Eric Hoplin. “The Vice President’s leadership has been felt throughout the business community and we are eager to hear his ideas and insights for the future advancement and prosperity of the country and to ensure that distributors can do what they do best and supply and support America,” concluded Hoplin.
“Distributors are the heart of the American supply chain,” said Vice President Mike Pence. “Thanks to the critical links and connections this industry makes possible, the goods and products needed to live and prosper in America make their way to communities and municipalities around the country.

We are thrilled to address leaders of this critical industry that keep the economy and the country moving,” concluded Pence.
