2020 – A Massive Year for ERA Global!

Ken Daly, CEO, JML and Chairman of ERA Global

Dear ERA Global Members, Dear Readers,

I trust 2019 was successful for you and your businesses.  The last quarter for many of our members is a critical time and I do hope that everyone achieved excellent numbers.  We are a tenacious group with many highly entrepreneurial companies amongst us, able to quickly adapt and take advantage of the new opportunities that are ever presenting themselves.  We have a long history of constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of our customers and the market.  So I am confident that ERA Global’s membership will be in good shape as we enter the New Year.

Just like our members, ERA is rapidly evolving to meet the needs of the multi-channel home shopping industry.  2020 is going to be a massive year for the organisation as we launch a whole host of initiatives and we are joined by many new members from around the world.

A very quick summary of some highlights for this year includes a members’ meeting in Frankfurt in February immediately before the Ambiente show, a complimentary members’ meeting room with refreshments in Chicago in March, a new weekly email news update, continued discounted rates at the PDMI shows, growth of the new Asia Pacific Chapter, a re-launch of the UK Chapter and our biggest European conference to date in Amsterdam this June.  Further events are also actively under consideration.  And all of this in a year when we are reducing our membership fees significantly to provide even better value for everyone!

I’m very much looking forward to seeing old friends and new members alike at the forthcoming ERA events.  In the meantime I’d like to wish you, your companies and your teams a healthy, enjoyable and prosperous 2020.

Best regards,

Ken Daly

Chairman of the Board, ERA Global
