The Electronic Retailing Association

Chairman's Message to the Members

A message from Ken Daly, Chairman of the ERA Global Board of Directors (June 2019 - 2021)

"ERA Global represents a highly tenacious group of businesses. That was very clear to me at the recent conference in Budapest. Optimism and positivity abounded, even though the environment in which we all operate, one would have thought, is becoming more challenging every day. There are so many success stories in our industry, happening right now, that the conclusion must be that we have the specialist knowledge, the skills, the experience and the sheer willpower to take advantage of our changing world and to seek out and seize new opportunities.

Website: Members Only Area

We are pleased to present the Members Only section as an important new feature of the ERA website

The Members Only section currently contains a Newsletter Archive for previous editions of the ERA Europe News as well as historical DRTV LAB Reports and Information on Counterfeiting. In due course we will add further Reports, further Information and a List of ERA Members.

The vision is that the Members Only section will grow to contain an archive of information and inside knowledge about our industry. This is a Member Benefit and therefore we have decided should not be generally available to all visitors to our website (which has of up to 200 visitors a day).
