Dear ERA members and non members, Thank you very much for your interest in exhibiting at the ERA European conference in June 2013 in Italy, Rome. The ERA European Conference brings together key decision-makers and industry leaders from around the world. Whether you use the power of direct response to sell goods and services on television, online or in the mobile/wireless world, the ERA European Conference is the one place you can expect to find a truly global representation of people from within your industry. It is a real pleasure for me to introduce to you the location for the 2013 ERA Europe Conference. Rome, the capital city of Italy, is ancient, impressive and hectic and yet it’s a place that encourages you to take things easy. Rome is steeped in history but thoroughly au fait with the modern world, a place where you feel the hand of history on your shoulder. Priests with cigars walking along the Imperial Forum; plate-loads of pasta in the Piazza Navona; scooters in every colour possible revving up at traffic lights as if preparing for a race, cafes on every corner filled with animated locals sporting every designer brand of sunglasses. Don’t feel like going to a museum? What’s the need when it’s all outside on the streets? Rome is an experience of a lifetime. The ERA Europe conference 2013 will take place at the Westin Hotel located in the Via Veneto district. Come and join the party, enjoy networking opportunities like never before and be swept away by the riches, quirks and vibrancy of this fascinating city. Please read the contents of this exhibitor manual carefully. If you have any questions or you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact me on nbarkan@eraeurope.org.
