ERA GLOBAL says that it expects its two international conferences in 2021 will go ahead

Brussels, Belgium, 1st February 2021 – Almost a year since the start of the worldwide crisis, ERA GLOBAL reported a manageable financial situation during its first virtual event of 2021, despite reserves being reduced during the pandemic.

The Association has rebranded from being a European organisation to a global entity representing the multi-channel home shopping industry. ERA Global is anticipating a highly positive outcome this year as physical conferences become possible again, new additional events are planned and membership grows.

As part of the long-term commitment to deliver high-quality informative events to the members throughout the year and to uphold the community spirit, ERA GLOBAL organized its second virtual Town Hall Meeting, dedicated to its members, at the end of January.

The event was held by Dr Julian Oberndörfer, CEO ERA GLOBAL, with special attendance by Ken Daly, CEO JML UK and ERA GLOBAL Chairman of Board of Directors. The aim of the event was to provide the members with a clear and transparent overview of the previous projects’ outcomes, the updated financial status and the future plans of the association.

Following the 2020 Amsterdam Conference cancellation last June, the association reorganised its activities and focused on delivering digital content to the members, as well as the preparations of its major 2021 events.
