ERA Conference 2013: 13-14 November 2013
Programme finalised: Book your place
ERA Technology celebrates its 15th Electrical and Electronic Equipment and the Environment conference this year on 13-14 November. Since its inception, this event has been unique in covering the very latest in environmental product regulation affecting electrical products from materials, through design, use and end-of-life. To mark this milestone in the history of the event, ERA has refreshed its conference and exhibition opportunities and relocated to a new venue at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport, (Terminal 4).
A DYNAMIC EVENT
Conference speakers are carefully chosen as experts in their fields, ensuring that those attending are fully up-to-date with the ever changing face of environmental legislation and compliance. The main event of its kind, it covers all the latest on substance issues (the RoHS2 Directive and REACH), ecodesign, end-of-life (the new WEEE2 Directive), responsible sourcing (conflict minerals) and sustainability. The conference offers the perfect opportunity to quickly get up to speed on these complex matters, receive answers to questions and meet leading representatives of both government and industry.

Complemented by an exhibition and conference dinner, facilitating further discussion and debate, the whole event takes place within the comfortable surroundings of the Concorde Suite, a dedicated conference complex at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport.
