Today, Seldia, the European Direct Selling Association welcomed the direct selling company PM International and the Kazakh Direct Selling Association (DSA) as new members. These two new members bring total membership to 44, of which 28 national DSA’s and 16 companies.
“Seldia’s growth is in sync with the success of our sector” explains Maurits Bruggink, Seldia’s Executive Director. “Direct selling has grown consistently over the last 5 years in Europe as the social and economic climate is changing in favour of entrepreneurship and personal development. Our current sales of €20billion in Europe are an indicator of our strength.”
Fast growing PM International is the third German company to become member in less than two years, following the joining of LR Health & Beauty Systems and Energetix in 2012. The Kazakh DSA is the 5th DSA of a non-EU member state to become member of Seldia.
“The growth of the Kazakh direct selling market is well above EU average” says Bruggink, ”I expect from the joining of the Kazakh DSA that we see further synchronisation in terms of trading standards and practices, as well as regulations. This will make it easier and transparent for companies to trade and invest in Kazakhstan. Seldia members will now also benefit from a local contact point.”
“PM International has recognised the benefits of joining Seldia” concludes Bruggink, ”As voice of the direct selling industry in Brussels, we not only engage in advocacy, but provide companies with counsel on regulatory issues in the EU and individual member states. This is possible through our network of 28 national member DSA’s. We are looking forward to welcome PM International at the Seldia annual European Direct Selling Conference on 2 October in Brussels!”
