About the GTDC

Your Connection to the Future of Technology Channels

The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) is a worldwide industry association dedicated to defining and promoting the role of wholesale distribution in a successful and healthy information technology channel. The Council is comprised of the computer industry’s top distributors dedicated to serving “the channel,” a network of skilled solution providers, Internet resellers and retailers focused on providing hardware, software and services to businesses and consumers around the globe. The GTDC is governed by its Executive Committee and Board of Directors, which consists of senior management representatives of the organization’s membership.

GTDC members drive $150 billion in annual worldwide sales of products, services and solutions through dynamic business channels. We help our members and vendors strengthen their partnerships and address industry-wide issues and opportunities. In addition, the GTDC enables vital industry insight for financial analysts and media looking for a definitive view of actual tech trends and the central role of IT distributors. Our executive-level conferences, services and research partnerships make the GTDC your one-stop resource for distribution industry information and strategic engagement.

Converting Sales to Leads


GTDC members provide their actual sales-out data to independent research firms – the NPD Group in the U.S., and CONTEXT and GfK in Europe – for subscriber-based tracking services. No other industry research provides such insight on technology sales and pricing trends by channel.
