"We're thrilled to sponsor the ERA Annual Conference," says Paul Dosser, vice president, business development for Digi-Key Electronics. "We've been a big supporter of ERA for many years because the manufacturer rep model fits extremely well with our business model. The virtual nature of the event this year fills a need for bringing the representative community together in our current distanced environment. We're excited to come alongside the rep community and share our expertise with those that we have missed seeing in person this past year."

Digi-Key personnel will be available virtually by chat to answer any questions and greet rep attendees during the pre-scheduled live virtual tradeshow hours.

"ERA is proud to have Digi-Key as a Benefactor Sponsor for its Virtual Conference," said Walter Tobin, CEO of ERA. "As the world of COVID-19 forced us to shift to a virtual platform, many new and xciting issues presented themselves to our industry. Digi-Key's support as both an ERA member and Benefactor Sponsor and participant will allow us to deliver a great event to our members. Digi-Key has always supported the manufacturers' sales rep model and has established a strong working relationship with them in the field. I am most appreciative of both the support and friendship of Digi-Key at all levels. Both are something ERA treasures and never takes for granted."
