How does it work?
Each year, the Conference takes part in a different member post country and is part of a two-day programme. On the first day, the IPC Board meeting and the Shareholders’ Annual General Meeting (AGM) take place, followed by the Annual Conference on the second day.
Annual Conference themes range from e-commerce, sustainability, SMEs to direct mail and data marketing, among others. Content is also derived from IPC’s own market research. The conference theme is agreed by the IPC Board two years in advance. Attendance at this high-level conference is by invitation only, and is open to postal CEOs accompanied by one or two senior executives. The Annual Conference features high-level speakers from the academic world, industry leaders, e-retailers and posts.
