Key Conference Events

Tuesday morning 18th June we will welcome everyone and give a brief outline what to expect throughout the conference.

Immediately after this welcome we will continue with the First Timer Speed Business Dating event. This event is tailored for new companies to guarantee them relevant business meetings. 17 of the most important market players will welcome new companies to our industry for 10 min meetings in a rotating format. Business leads will be established and the attending companies will also receive a lot of mentorship what to finetune (if needed) to be successful players in our industry. We can guarantee that these companies have relevant meetings and their investment in coming to our conference will pay back.

The same day from 1.00p.m. - 1.45p.m. we will discuss the status of our global industry and community. many of you will recall the panel we had last year on the same issue...12 months later, we will assess where we are today.

Wednesday 19th starts with the MCMS (our discussion series Multi-Channel Money Streams) where we discuss business opportunities beyond pure DRTV and Teleshopping issues. This year we partner with EMOTA, the European eCommerce and Multi-channel Trade Association, of which we are a member. Together we worked on an informative lineup of topics, including a showcase on the Chinese multi-channel market and relations with this still growing market. We also take a focus on opportunities in Eastern Europe, including Russia. Our public policy section this year will focus on Platform Liability. Our “hands-on” section will focus on Artificial Intelligence, 360°, logistics and finance. Branimir Brkljac, well known to many of us, will introduce the days topic and draw a conclusion.

When our business day ends it will time to celebrate. The EMMA 2019 gala will open at 7.30 pm in the Corinthia Ballroom. We look forward to a splendid gala with a three course Menu to celebrate our champions. As you will recall we have implemented more categories and are as excited as you to hear who the jury will have chosen. For the first time we will host an after show party. It is only 5 minutes away by foot, but we will have a shuttle service to the famous EXTRA club which will be reserved exclusively for us until 4 a.m.

Thursday, the final day of the conference, is reserved for your business meetings only.

We do hope that you all will have a successful conference and will enjoy our events. Moreover that you do have a chance to profit from wonderful Budapest. Maybe you take the opportunity to stay longer to discover this beautiful city on the Danube river.
