									The Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) is the only trade association dedicated to companies retailing on TV, Internet and on all electronic channels used by consumers around the world; whether retailers, marketers, product inventors, manufacturers or services companies.

Shopping from Home to buy anything from books, music, skin care & cosmetics, cooking equipment, do-it-yourself & tools, travel & holidays to real estate, financial products, cars and many more products and services, is becoming a way of life for millions of households and families around the world. Europe continues to experience record growth in Electronic Retailing and to lead the implementation and use of innovative digital applications.

Electronic Shopping is accelerating the convergence of TV, video, sound and on-line information access to make your TV screen and personal computers, relayed by your mobile phone and I-Pods® a round-the-clock personal shopping centre . New forms of “peer to peer” transactions are exploding on line and on specialized TV channels. Such a business and social revolution deserves a dedicated Annual International Conference and Exposition. Now known as the ERA EUROPEAN CONFERENCE & EXPO. On the following pages, you will find some suggested levels of Conference sponsorship. No matter how you choose to contribute, sponsoring the ERA Conference will bring your company’s name to a broad spectrum of key contacts in the field of Electronic Retailing & Home Shopping. The Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) promotes standards of excellence in Electronic Retailing. Being a sponsor at the ERA EUROPEAN Conference will associate you with this search for excellence, pursued by the association members around the world and the hundreds of attendees expected at this “new” ERA EUROPEAN Event. We would be happy to talk with you about any of the following options or about a combination of sponsorship and exhibition items.
