EMMA Awards

Awards are dedicated to ERA Global members 

The EMMA Awards play a crucial role in recognizing and celebrating achievements within the Home Shopping Industry. The ceremony serves as a platform to honor individuals, networks and suppliers who have demonstrated ingenuity and creativity in their contributions to the industry. The EMMA Awards offer each ERA Global member the opportunity to recognize a colleague or institution during the ERA Global Summer Conference.  It provides a powerful and moving occasion where industry professionals can connect, celebrate achievements and gain inspiration from each other.

 


EMMA Awards Dinner

ERA Global will once again take advantage of the unique beachfront location of the Westin Dragonara Resort in 2024 and will hold in good weather the EMMA Awards Ceremony at the unrivalled Reef Club Pool Deck. Besides the stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea, guests will enjoy the high-quality cuisine of the resort with a selection of corresponding wines.

After the official party guests are cordially invited to round off the evening with good music and a drink or two at the EMMA Awards After Show Party.

 


Sponsorship

Sponsoring the ERA Global Conference offers a valuable opportunity for companies looking to make a significant impact in the Multi-Channel Home Shopping industry. Here are some key benefits and considerations associated with sponsoring the conference.

 


International Exposure: With international attendees participating from over 40 countries, sponsoring the conference provides a platform for your brand to gain exposure on a global scale. This diverse audience offers a unique opportunity to showcase your products or services to a wide range of professionals in the industry.

Targeted Audience: The conference gathers multi-channel specialists and suppliers, creating a highly targeted audience. This focused group allows sponsors to connect with individuals who are directly involved in the Home Shopping industry, making it an ideal platform to reach potential clients, partners and collaborators.

Enhanced Company Image: Sponsoring a prestigious event can enhance your company's image and reputation within the industry. Being associated with a respected conference like ERA Global can contribute to building trust and credibility among industry professionals.

Networking Opportunities: The conference provides a conducive environment for networking. Sponsors have the chance to interact with attendees, engage in meaningful conversations, and build relationships. Networking is a key aspect of business growth and this conference offers a concentrated gathering of industry experts.

Brand Visibility: Sponsors typically receive visibility through various channels, including event materials, signage and promotional activities. This increased visibility can lead to higher brand recognition and recall among conference attendees.


Sponsoring pays off

The cost of sponsoring may be lower than you expect as Sponsors not only get great promotional coverage but also receive free tickets to the conference as part of the package (how many depends on your level of sponsorship - Main Sponsor, Gold Sponsor, Silver Sponsor or Bronze Sponsor). 


For detailed information, please refer the Malta Pricing And Sponsorship Booklet on the right hand side of this page, under EVENT DOWNLOADS.
