PostalVision 2020/4.0 is headed in New Directions for 2014

Given a declining need for letter delivery on the one hand and an increasing need for e-commerce driven parcel delivery on the other, the nation’s residential delivery ecosystem is facing a critical challenge to serve growing consumer expectations for greater speed, privacy, security and trust. The nation’s postal delivery ecosystem needs to be re-envisioned and new systems put into place to accommodate changing 21st century societal demands.  That’s the focus of the fourth annual PostalVision 2020 Conference that will host experts from around the U.S. and the world April 10-11, at the Westin City Center in Washington, D.C.

Attendees and speakers will include some of the world’s most innovative e-merchants, digital communicators and logistics innovators as well as organizations involved in traditional mailing and shipping such as financial institutions, direct advertisers, catalogers, third-party software and transportation service providers. The event is supported at the highest levels by private industry and the public sector. Leading sponsors include eBay, DHL Global Mail, Pitney Bowes, and Accenture.

At PostalVision 2020/4.0 everything will be on the table – from traditional household mailbox delivery to cluster and locker boxes, drone delivery, digital security and other topics.  We will be hearing from the operators and innovators that are creating the new models and reinventing the ecosystem”. The conference will include experts from across the U.S. as well as from Italy, Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, Australia and China.
