CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Pipedream University (PDU) held another two-day weekend seminar at Pipedream's main campus in Chatsworth, this time providing Eldorado Trading with the tools and training needed to effectively merchandise and market Pipedream’s award-winning brands.

Over the weekend, Eldorado Trading was the third distribution company to graduate from the two-day course, which offered business, education and pleasure. The Eldorado crew was treated to a weekend in which they were given an inside look at Pipedream's shipping, receiving, manufacturing and day-to-day operations.

"I am extremely excited to see the reactions of the Eldorado team. They were very engaging, very receptive to our new program as well as our marketing initiatives," Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino said. "It was a great weekend and we're looking forward to more PDU seminars in the future."

"There was great synergy between both companies. We have a fantastic partnership and I'm looking forward to another year of success," says Pipedream Vice President Ruben Deitz.

In Pipedream's traditional style of hospitality, PDU attendees were treated to fun, food and festivities between class sessions.

After the two-day event, account managers Alex Cage, Stephanie Frey and Jeff Waterstreet, and sales director Karla Scott of Eldorado Trading shared their excitement.

"It was a well-rounded program with one-on-one, in-depth training that gave us an educational aspect of Pipedream," says Alex. "All the Pipedream team members really knew their products, they were cross-trained and very knowledgeable," Frey said.

"We didn't have time to see everything in detail at ANME, and PDU gave us a chance to have a close-up look at Pipedream's line of products," Scott said.

"I wish it was longer, like three or four days, everyone is really nice and knows what they're talking about," Waterstreet said.

After a full weekend of factory tours, in-depth merchandise training, a get-together at the CEO's residence, and a light-hearted graduation ceremony, the Eldorado crew all agreed that PDU was a fun and valuable experience. Upon their return to Colorado, Eldorado's President Larry Garland sent thanks to Pipedream and wrote: "I am proud to have my certificate of Graduation from PDU. I truly believe our two companies are on the same path and share a similar vision about the future. It means a lot to me to be partnered with such a forward-thinking company."
