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.

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

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.

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.
