What you need to know about our event

After the astounding success of the 2022 ERA Global Conference in Amsterdam, we bring to you the next summer conference in MALTA.

Attending this event is your best opportunity to grow your global network and find your next bestsellers!

This annual conference is the only global 'direct to consumer' business oriented trade fair for companies that sell worldwide on TV, online or via electronic media.

Our annual event is attended by approximate 400 representatives of the industry, key-figures, decision makers, marketers from DRTV and Home Shopping networks, as well as Social Media influencers. New products are launched and new business contacts created.

Besides the incentivising panel discussions and the great business networking hub consisting of business club tables and spacious meeting rooms, our conference includes a generous exhibition area.

Each year, the evening events such as Opening Reception and the EMMA Awards are highly valued by our attendees as they provide an opportunity to connect with others in a more relaxed setup.
