The EDA is a member of the European Union of Electrical Wholesalers (EUEW) which was founded in 1955. The EUEW is an Association of Associations providing a forum for 15 nations to come together to represent the interests of the electrical wholesaling channel which is becoming increasingly global.
Total membership in the 15 national associations of the EUEW is about 1, 300 companies with more than 5,200 outlets employing some 65,000 people.
The General Secretary of the EUEW is Brussels-based Hans Hanegreefs.
You can find links to the 15 national associations here.
One of the highlights of the EUEW’s calendar is the Annual Convention which normally takes place in June over two days from a Thursday evening to Saturday lunchtime. The Convention brings together senior executives from the world of wholesaling as well as manufacturing; it creates an environment where key issues can be presented and discussed, new business relationships forged and old ones renewed.
Each year a small delegation from the EDA attends the Convention, which is usually held in June. It is highly recommended that EDA members and affiliates with interests in Europe attend. If you would like to join the delegation to the EUEW Convention please contact Margaret Fitzsimons at the EDA on 020 3141 7351 or for more information visit the EUEW website.
