About the Conference

The Annual Electronic Home Shopping Conference is the only direct-to-consumer business oriented trade fair and conference in Europe. Since 2007, ERA Europe has organised the Electronic Home Shopping Conference in major European cities. The show has been held in Monaco, Berlin, Rome, Vienna, Barcelona and in 2017 the host city will be Venice.

Who should attend the conference?

This conference is for companies who sell directly to the many millions of consumers around the world who buy goods and services on TV, online, and on the move, via electronic media. This is the show for all direct-to-consumer multi-channel professionals, an expo not only for marketers and advertisers, but also the key suppliers to the industry, such as call centres, warehousing & fulfilment companies, TV production companies, payment systems, web design companies, legal firms and, of course, companies and inventors with products who are looking for retail distribution into new territories.

Conference visitors typically represent the following sectors:

  • Multichannel retailers
  • Direct response retailers & marketers
  • DRTV specialists
  • Home shopping channels
  • Distance selling organisations
  • E-commerce retailers
  • Catalogue companies
  • Fulfilment companies
  • TV channels
  • Payment systems

Networking Opportunities

Our attendees enjoy an excellent chance to network with suppliers and discover new opportunities in the home shopping industry. Over 400 attendees from more than 150 companies attended the 2016 conference in Barcelona, representing 43 countries. Over the years, over 500 companies from more than 50 countries have attended and exhibited at the conference.

Exhibiting at the Home Shopping Conference

At the trade show we provide you with standard or custom designed exhibition booths: Our booths are 3X2 modular booth systems with an interior height of 248 cm and an „octanorm“ walling system. Your company name is displayed on black vinyl. The booth will be appointed with halogen spotlight lighting. For additional furniture or design elements, have a look at the catalogue of options on our conference website.

Designated “Business Club“ area

Companies who do not need to have their own exhibition space but would like to have a fixed meeting point where they can meet their business partners, can also reserve a business club table. These areas are available for our attendees to hold meetings, exchange ideas and conduct their business productively over the course of the event. The business table arrangements include two armchairs, one sofa and a table. The business club table is branded with your company logo and is reserved exclusively for your company for the entire trade show.


This show is an expo not only for marketers and advertisers, but also for key suppliers to the industry. Our conference offers sponsorship opportunities to all participants. As a sponsor at ERA Europe‘s Electronic Home Shopping Conference 2017 in Venice, you will have the opportunity to showcase your brand to hundreds of attendees and receive placement in our website gallery for a year.


EMMA awards

On the evening of Wednesday 21st June 2017, ERA Europe will once again host the EMMA awards ceremony that will honour networks and suppliers for their ingenuity and creativity. Awards will be presented for categories such as the most innovative show concept; best selling app; best interactive TV app; most innovative social media strategy, to name a few.


MCMS Congress 2017

The MCMS Congress will take place on Wednesday 21st June. As ERA Europe is the association for the European Home Shopping Industry, it is imperative that we offer educational opportunities to members and attendees. In 2016 ERA Europe continued the success of the MCMS (Multi Channel Money Streams), an educational congress held during the €lectronic Home Shopping Conference. The 2017 MCMS will look at subjects such as the impact of Virtual Reality, Blockchain developments, market regulations, as well as the future and the challenges facing the modern multi-channel industry.

We look forward to seeing you in Venice!
