NEWS ABOUT ERA U.S. DOES NOT AFFECT THE SEVILLE CONFERENCE

Following the news from ERA USA that they are stopping their activities, ERA Europe has sent the following statement to its members.

Dear ERA Members,

Dear Attendees of the Multi-Channel Home Shopping Conference,

We have all received a very sad communication from ERA US stating that they are discontinuing their activities as an association with immediate effect. For the moment we do not have any additional information and cannot provide you any more insights.

As you know, ERA Europe is an independent not-for-profit association governed by Belgium law. The European association is in good shape and over the past years we have step by step evolved the membership benefits and services we offer. In consequence this means:

  • ERA Europe does not plan to discontinue its existence nor reduce member benefits
  • The Sevilla conference will take place as scheduled.
  • Companies that have signed with member status/ being members of ERA US will continue to be treated as members for the 2018 conference – we will not readjust the pricing.
  • For the moment we cannot provide any further information regarding the US association nor the planned events in Las Vegas and Miami.

Best regards.

Maja Umek
