Update No 2 on the U.S.: The dates for Las Vegas are confirmed and we are working on an online tool to make sure you know who is going

Also an invitation to take part in a short survey.

Dear conference attendees, dear ERA Europe members and global community,

Almost three weeks after the European conference in Sevilla, below please find the latest status quo update.

Dates 24th to 27th of September and Las Vegas are confirmed. Unfortunately we do not have any further information on the planned location. As written in our past email, many people are working to enable a good solution. As soon as we know more, we will let you know.

However, to provide a general overview of who will be in LV and to better organize your meetings, we are working on an online solution. Once you have logged in you will be able to see all other companies and individuals that have committed to being in Las Vegas at the same time. This will give you the opportunity to ensure that you meet your colleagues in LV. Your commitment will help you and your industry peers to understand who is coming and will also ease our assessment of our next steps. So please log in once the platform is up and running and encourage all your colleagues that are traveling to do so.

As the global industry is about to be restructured, we would also like to ask you for your input. This might be an opportunity to optimize dates and venues for future conferences. In the past we had a spring show in Miami, followed by the European event in June and Las Vegas in fall. We cannot promise that once we have received your feedback, we will be able to meet everybody’s expectations. We have, however, already received many ideas and led many interesting discussions over the past weeks, so maybe there are opportunities (even if they are only small changes made) to improve the overall setting.

We would like to thank you for your input in advance and ask that you answer the short list of questions:

We thank you for your support and will continue to send out regular updates on the situation to ensure that everybody is well informed.

Best regards.
