The Best Party is an ERA Party


ERA chair Poonam Khubani (right) joined some of the industry’s most prominent pitchmen at the event.

On Sunday, March 19, 2017, ERA took to the Windy City to host Network Chicago in conjunction with the International Home + Housewares Show. Held at theWit Hotel in the heart of Chicago’s theater, arts, and shopping district, the late-night event sold out in less than 24 hours, with nearly 250 direct response industry leaders in attendance. The event offered countless opportunities to network with new acquaintances and reconnect with old friends.

The evening was a huge success, topped off with ERA’s inaugural Achievers Awards. Selected by the board of directors, the new awards honor the association’s marketer and supplier members for outstanding contributions to the association. In receipt of the inaugural awards were TeleBrands (Marketer Award) and Lockard & Wechsler Direct (Supplier Award). Congratulations to both companies! They—and many others—positively shape the ERA community through their involvement and support.

Thank you to Argo Contact Centers, Dial800, Surging Media Group, TeleBrands, and Viatek Consumer Products Group for cosponsoring Network Chicago!
