E – This year’s Eurimage meeting was staged in Palma de Mallorca from April 16 and 17, 2015 at the centrally located hotel, HM Jaime III. Once a year, the 15 members of the international distributor’s alliance meet up to discuss the strategic alignment of the group, joint projects and to finalise the catalogue that appears twice a year.
The Eurimage Group is a holding company, which only one member per country is allowed to join. After a two-year trial period, the newcomers have the opportunity to become shareholders.
The morning of the first day of the meeting focused on the shareholders – among others, budget issues were addressed and the admission of a further shareholder was decided upon. Furthermore, the board of directors presented the financial report. All of the members were present in the afternoon and on the second day of the meeting. Here, the discussed themes included the positive and negative experiences the members had made with suppliers as well as joint projects such as the group’s own database, the web shop system and the catalogue that is currently being produced. A new member, the Dutch company BeGlobal, also introduced itself.
The joint evening dinners were characterised by animated discussions, a relaxed exchange and a sociable atmosphere.
A detailed report will be published in eppi magazine, No. 105 (June 10, 2015).
