PostalVision 2020 New Expanded Strategic Direction

PostalVision 2020 starting in 2016 has expanded its strategic direction into a new model based on year-round initiatives to build on the momentum gained in the past through its annual events to engage global participants in a dialogue about the future of our postal ecosystem.

“Following the 2016 annual conference (6.0), we will be kicking off a series of events and conversations designed to build on the momentum coming out of our annual event,” said John Callan, managing director of Ursa Major Associates and head of the PostalVision 2020 initiative. “PostalVision 2020 for six years has succeeded in engaging stakeholders in these critical discussions at our annual event,” said Callan, “and now we will be able to continue and build on that momentum through ongoing excursions and discussions.”

The PostalVision 2020 team is exploring excursion opportunities with a variety of stakeholders, including suppliers, service providers, and mail users. Excursion ideas range from business-specific PV2020 ‘mini-events,” to service provider customer briefings, to focused sessions at larger conferences and meetings serving the global postal ecosystem. If your business, association, or group is interested in discussing a potential PostalVision 2020 excursion or event, please contact John Callan.
