Did you know, for example, that recently IDI has drafted a Q&A Paper, dealing with the most frequently asked questions concerning the impact of COVID-19 on distribution/supply, franchising and agency contracts? The Q&A Paper, available in the special reports section (, includes the answers provided by IDI Country Experts and will be constantly updated, also with the addition of the contributions for further countries.


In addition to all these advantages and much more, IDI members are granted a significant discount to attend the Annual Conference of the association.
