Due to the ongoing complexity of the global health emergency, and after taking into account the views and concerns expressed by exhibitors and speakers, it has been decided to put Parcel+Post Expo 2020 on hold and move the dates forward to October 11, 12, 13,14, 2021, when it will be staged in Vienna as originally planned.
In view of the excellent conference content that has been fully arranged and also the importance of the UPU World Leaders Forum, we will now be running a virtual event on the same days as originally planned for 2020. Full details of how to sign up to this will be announced shortly. Fundamentally, the plan is to run most of the initially proposed program along with the UPU World Leaders Forum using a blend of pre-recorded presentations and ‘live’ sessions.
The program will run on October 12, 13, 14, 15, 2020, in sync with the original published schedule, with full availability on the ‘live’ days and with later accessibility through various platforms.
There will be an additional series of emails to deliver content on technologies that were planned to be launched by exhibitors at this year’s event, and a Global Industry Report that will review the way posts around the world have responded to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. Various sponsorship packages are available. Please contact Matt Gunn for details.
Wishing all of our long-standing and much respected community safety and well-being in the months ahead and looking forward to a return to normality.
Tony Robinson, founder, Parcel+Post Expo
“Although disappointed that the World Leaders Forum will not take place in Vienna this year, I am pleased that the Universal Postal Union and our partner UKi Media & Events will go ahead with a virtual event. By doing so, we intend to deepen the postal conversation and to stimulate a truly global discussion on the industry’s invaluable operations”
