ERA GLOBAL Member Lounge at the Inspired home Show in Chicago

Brussels, 7 March 2023 - ERA GLOBAL (The Electronic Retailing Association Europe Asbl.)

Finally, five years after the initial discussions, ERA Global was able to offer an exclusive member lounge at The Inspired Home Show in Chicago to its members.

The ERA Global member lounge was hosted at the Lakeside Centre, offering snacks, drinks and meeting facilities. 45 member companies and on an average 120 guests per day visited the facilities to meet their peers and discuss the latest trends and business.

We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our members. We are grateful to the International Houseware Association for enabling us to offer this opportunity to our members and plan a similar offering for 2024 (Dr. Julian Oberndörfer, CEO ERA Global).

We are glad that the member lounge was very well received by the attending members. For the upcoming year, our goal will be to extend these partnerships with other events which are attended by our industry community (Dieter Schneider, Chairman ERA Global).

The next upcoming event of ERA Global is the Summer Conference in Malta, June 20-22 and the second one in Las Vegas, September 19-21.
