More than 600 direct response decision makers will attend to mingle, collaborate and partner with other industry leaders. You’ll make new connections and strengthen existing ones while exploring innovative ways to drive profitability during our eight compelling education sessions—sessions that were hand-picked by members of the direct response community to best serve your needs. 

Networking Receptions
ERA hosts networking receptions around the globe and throughout the year to provide direct response marketing industry professionals a convenient place to connect and interact with one another. The events are generally timed to occur during a related industry event. This way, ERA members and non-members have an intimate and convenient place to convene and meet specifically with other multichannel marketers when traveling to and attending a conference. 

Government Affairs Fly-In
The ERA Government Affairs Fly-In is held each Spring in Washington, D.C. and is your unique chance to support the DR industry. Attending the GA Fly-In provides you with the chance to meet with key lawmakers, network with industry leaders, learn and become a better advocate in a fun and interactive setting, and demonstrate the power of the DR industry by letting policymakers know that the direct response industry is strong and vibrant.

Digital Road Show
For more than 25 years, ERA has remained an industry leader by providing relevant content for businesses that want to drive revenue and build brand awareness. In today’s expanding omnichannel environment, ERA’s goal is to bridge the gap between Television and Digital by offering a forum that encourages constructive dialogue and innovative thinking. There is no better group that has the experience and intellectual property to bridge this gap. Each year, ERA will strategically highlight regional areas around the U.S. as Digital “Hot beds” such as Austin, Charlotte, Boston, and Salt Lake City, where you can expect to meet online marketers and the service providers that are helping them become leaders in Digital commerce. Each Road Show will be by invitation only, allowing an exclusive number of industry thought leaders to present to a select group of marketers.

ERA Moxie Awards Gala
The ERA Moxie Awards Gala is direct response marketing's equivalent of an Oscar moment honoring the best campaigns of the year. Strut down the BLUE carpet, get your photo taken, and enjoy a delicious dinner and great company.
