The DIANA awards have recognized supply chain excellence and successful trading partner relationships since 1959. The awards honor pharmaceutical and consumer product manufacturers for developing innovative new product introductions and promotions for the healthcare distribution industry. Manufacturers also are recognized for advancing trade relations by fostering strong trading partner relationships with HDMA distributor members and creating exceptional business practices that benefit the entire healthcare supply chain.

In addition, presented for the second year, the DIANA Manufacturer Partner of the Year recognizes companies for their active participation in the Association. The winning companies have at least five consecutive years of membership, regularly participate in HDMA conferences, serve on Association committees, and show support through event attendance and sponsorships.

HDMA President and CEO John M. Gray said, “We are pleased to honor our manufacturer trading partners for their innovative and collaborative efforts with distributors, as well as the time and effort they devote to HDMA’s important mission.”
