Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow and wants more time!

Early Bird Rates Extended through Feb 10

There’s still some time to save!

 

While Phil has been sleeping, some of us have been very busy – at the White House, on Wall Street and even in Congress! Thanks to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders for introducing H.R. 756, the Postal Service Reform Act of 2017!

And our PostalVision team and supporters have been very busy too, organizing and orchestrating our highly successful Delivery By Design conference last week, that featured an unprecedented debate on the Mailbox Monopoly. Stay tuned for a collaborative summary of highpoints to come from Ursa Major and our GAO session facilitators.

So to give us all a little breathing room, we are pleased to extend our current Early Bird Discount prices for PostalVision 2020/7.0 registration through February 10.

The full PostalVision 2020/7.0 – Business NOT As Usual agenda will be announced soon. As a sneak preview of just a few of the inspiring speakers to join us, we are proud to announce that Jeff Jarvis, just back from the World Economic Forum, will once again help us envision a future ecosystem reshaped by the digital economy. SAP’s Ruth Eberhart will share their industry specific views of Value Creation by Postal Services in a Digital Economy, as well.

The global Postal Platform is a fertile field for digital opportunity. Its soil is rich and ready for seeding many new apps, products and inventions.. From serving the first and last mile, meeting local neighborhood needs with a personal touch, to reaching across the nation and around the world tying virtually every household and business together, the global postal system is absolutely unique. And it welcomes the rototilling of old ways in favor of planting new ideas.

At PostalVision 2020/7.0 Bernhard Bukovc of the Europe-based Postal Innovation Platform (PIP) will moderate a line-up of distinguished speakers from abroad.We will look for opportunities nearby and far-afield. And with the help of our newest PostalVision Pillar and representative Wolfgang Hall, global GIS leader, Esri, the range of our vision is limitless. With emphasis on the need for all businesses to consider how to do business differently in this new digital economy, by adopting new business models, rethinking face-to-face and electronic customer relationships, embracing “asset-lite” expansion strategies, employing new crowd-based resources, developing and/or acquiring new products, testing new pricing mechanisms, engaging with partners and coopetitors, going cross-border, etc., PostalVision 2020/7.0 will characteristically bring together ideas and expertise from all across the postal delivery platform.

The “last inch”


The race to win the game of consumer satisfaction in “B2Me” ecommerce is in its home stretch. And it’s coming down not just to the “last mile” — but to the “last inch.” And that’s a small increment of a parcel’s journey from China, but probably the most critical. How consumers get their “hands-on” their goods is becoming everything! PostalVision 2020 will discover, display and at least discuss the latest inventions and ideas about transacting the “last inch.” From trucks to robots and drones, to residential smart mailboxes and lockers, to clusters and convenience locations, all will be considered. And oh yes, 3D printing/additive manufacturing will addressed by Gil Perez of SAP, who recently has partnered with UPS in this space.Industry leading support


Perennial PostalVision brand-leading sponsors FedEx, UPS, Accenture, Bell and Howell and Open Market are coming back to join the conversation while representatives from newest sponsors Esri and SAP will articulate their firms’ future views. Among new inventions to be showcased will be a breakthrough parcel loading system ergonomically designed to minimize delivery driver back strain and injury, from our recent sponsor addition, CargoGlide. And, as is to be expected at PostalVision, we will see and hear about the latest solutions for consumers to satisfactorily receive and return their goods.

 

So be sure to register now! Or at least by midnight on February 10 to qualify for the deepest discount available between now and the event!
